Reading the April 19 Views From the Street article, “Hiroshima: Should Japan abandon the use of nuclear energy?,” I could not help noticing the narrow viewpoint of the featured responses.

Are there no alternatives to nuclear? Only if you are unimaginative, narrowminded, or backward orientated. Consider, for example, the Reuters video: http://uk.reuters.com/news/video/story?videoId=201758596&videoChannel=5

I hope this country comes alive again soon.
