AZ Rep. Patterson on nuclear risks & considerations

Nuclear disaster in Japan is a wake up call to energy leaders worldwide

TUCSON -- Energy experts, governments and all should take a new hard look at not promoting costly nuclear plants.

Nukes have long been too expensive, which is largely why big energy hasn't built more. Now the catastrophe in Japan reminds us of the radioactive dangers.

Solar and wind energy don't risk meltdowns or make deadly toxic waste. America is safer environmentally and economically now without an explosive nuclear rush.
