I'm a nuclear physicist, I'm really sick of people thinking when I go to work they feel the need to say "Be safe".

Seriously, they put a ******** of safeguards into nuclear power plants.
More than seems logical most times.

Also, I'm sick of seeing this comic being reposted....repeatedly....
this must be the 100th time I've seen it here.

1. this isn't an OC comic.
2. Nuclear is actually quite safe
3. mines are actually a lot safer now that much of the work is done by machines, the real concern with coal is pollution
4. wind turbines have been known to chop up birds
all in all, 0/10 would not thumb.

Nuclear: Although it is almost always well controlled, a bad emergency can be devastating to a large area. Bi-product is also harmful to the environment and storing it is somewhat dangerous.

Oil: Dangerous to collect in many situations, and a large release into the ecosystem can cause major damage. Even converting it into useful energy causes harm to the environment. Non-renewable.

Coal: Harvesting is dangerous, but on a smaller scale than other energy sources. Converting it into energy affects the environment negatively. Non-renewable.

Wind Turbine: Not harmful to the environment nor very dangerous. However, it is expensive especially at a large scale, and the energy return is relatively small for land area consumed. Not efficient all the time or in all places.
Solar Panel: Creating panels often involves the use of non-eco-friendly materials and chemicals. If maintained, not harmful to the environment. Expensive at a large scale, and not much energy produced for the land area consumed. Space can be made, though, in most places where they can act relatively efficiently.

Geothermal: Cheap. Buildings are very small in comparison with other energy harvesting methods. However, it can only be done in places where there are sources of heat close to the surface of the earth, often in places which are far away from cities. Energy produced is moderate. There is a minor byproduct of waste water which can be harmful to the environment if not disposed of properly.

Bio-mass Combustion: Not dangerous to harvest biological material fit for burning. The fuel though can be somewhat expensive due to the fact it is usually bought from the food market. Produces a good energy return, but smoke is produced which affects the air and environment.
Hydro-electric: Renewable, no smoke produced. However, it is very expensive to build the large facilities (Dams) necessary for harvesting, and they can severely disrupt ecosystems.

The only problem is that that isn't the argument against it. The argument is that they are expensive to begin with. After they are made, they aren't expensive at all, since you don't have to buy the fuel, but while they are being made they are extremely expensive.

Better arguments: (I hate political comics, because they allow no counter-argument)
1. Noisy (you would probably want to kill yourself if you heard the noise from one in your backyard)
2. Expensive as Hell
3. Kills birds, may interfere with aircraft in some cases
4. Unlike traditional energy sources, isn't always available. Coal works when it isn't windy

I'll never understand the people that think windpower is 100% clean, I worked at a foundry that cast the hubs, bearinghouses and frames for those monsters and the work put in to make just one creates pollution that'll take a few years for that mill to make up for.
