  1. Hmm, does nuclear energy is green energy?

  2. Of course Nuclear is one of the green energy without CO2 emission..

  3. So, do u support gov build nuclear plant in Malaysia?

  4. hmmm..what will you think if the nuclear plant is next door of your house?

  5. hmm.... if you support green energy (including the nuclear plant), you should support nuclear plant in malaysia. Sorry if my view is wrong.

  6. We currently waste too much energy! Use high efficiency appliances and plant more trees, am sure we can easily remove 30-40% of waste energy on the grid.
    Nuclear power plant not necessary just concentrate on Conservation of energy.
