Nuclear power or nuclear bomb

Nuclear power is on everybody's lips. The President of Iran says that he is creating nuclear power for their energy needs and not to bomb Israel.

Many countries rely on atomic energy for their electricity.

Though nuclear energy is cheap, no reactors have been built since the 1980s. Accidents, spiralling decommissioning costs and the problem of nuclear waste have eroded enthusiasm.

But with soaring oil and gas prices, dwindling fossil fuel reserves and pressure to tackle climate change - such as depletion of ozone layer, many believe a new generation of reactors is required.

What do you think? Should we go for nuclear power/energy - in the face of a possible nuclear war disaster?
