In this article the author discusses why nuclear power should not be phased out yet. He mentions the nuclear crisis in Japan that affects the public opinion, safety and the economic costs of nuclear power. He states that the accident should not be the reason for governments to discontinue the use of nuclear power because it is much better than using fossil fuels. He suggests that governments need to ensure transparency in nuclear power operations and invest more in renewable energy sources.
