Nuclear energy gets new French-driven boost
PARIS – Poor countries need nuclear power, French President Nicolas Sarkozy said Monday, urging rich lenders to help pay for a global nuclear expansion in the interests of fighting climate change and feeding the growing world hunger for energy.
Sarkozy recognized the danger of meltdowns or proliferation — and international worries about Iran's nuclear program. He stood firmly against those who "cheat" and use nuclear technology to make weapons.
His tantalizing vision of nuclear reactors dotting the horizon won over international energy officials from India to Brussels and French executives eager to market their expertise abroad, all present at a Paris conference Monday.

I have a nuclear power plant (Perry Nucelear Power Plant) 7 miles away from where I live. It's not a big deal. We have lived here for 10 years and haven't had any emergencies related to the power plant.
