    To "Pagan" have you been saving up your bitterness and hatred.

    This is no more dangerous than the car in your driveway.

    Why not invest in more nuclear power. It is green, safe, and renewable. As an added bonus, it is cheap. Why would you want to use solar power which requires mines that destroy more land than natural gas, thermal, which isn't readily avilable, or wind generated energy that depends on oil production for the plastics that are used to build the wind mills. Also, why use solar and wind, which actually pollute more than a gas fired power plant? Wind and solar require that a gas fired power plant idle, buring fuel, while trying to balance the power output from the variable solar and wind generators.

    This explosion, which forced people from their homes, also relies on natural gas.

    It is truly a shame our government does not invest in solar, thermal or wind generated energy...

    as much as they do in energy sources that can drive you from your home, into the cold.

    No one has ever said natural gas is renewable. And it's relatively safe. Your furnace, hot water heater, half the power plants in utah, rely on natural gas.

    Tell me again how Natural gas is a 'green and safe' source of renewable energy?
