S and T Watch-62: Nuclear Energy is Very Dangerous to Humanity

This news item by the Staff Reproter of THE HINDU in THE HINDU of February 7, 2013, caught my eye and I thought it needs to be posted in my blog.  Here is an excerpt from the news item:

NUCLEAR ENERGY IS VERY DANGEROUS TO HUMANITY
International Conference on Power, Control (P S N A College of Engineering and Technolgy, Dindigul)

With rapid depletion of fossil fuels, clean energies such as solar, water and wind alone will meet growing power needs in future.  Nuclear energy is very dangerous to humanity, said Joachim Holtz, Professor Emeritus, University of Wuppertal, Germany.  

.....

Nuclear wastes have been posing a grave threat to human beings and the environment.  Nuclear disasters in Russia and Japan had displayed its effects.  Germany had decided to shut down all its nuclear plants in a phased manner and switched over to clean energy.

Germany and Denmark were leading the world in tapping wind energy.  Every village in south Germany has solar panels to generate power, he added.

.....

Grateful thanks to Prof.Holtz and The Hindu.
