    Nuclear has safety issues that can not be managed.

    If we have learned one thing from Fukushima is that it is impossible to safely operate nuclear for a long time. It's just not humanly possible.

    As for coal not beeing able to be mined without destroying the land, as the son of a mining engineer I can assure you that is absurd.  

    Running responsible coal mining operations is just more expensive.  That of course ha sno implication on the carbon issue - but you don't have to rape the land to get the coal.  It is just ... cheaper.
