One note for enviroment (Blog Action Day)

I have joined a Blog Action Day.

Today I should write something about climate change, but I have found some stuff related, and probably this will be the best idea to repost it here.

Renewable sources of energy has some effect to local environment (birds are falling to large wind turbines, and many solar power plants causes local temperature raise by few degrees). I think that we should use nuclear power plants in future, because it will be very efficient and independent power source - as far I know it hasn't got much impact on climate change (some report has been written about it influence to climate change - maybe it is sponsored?).

One thing is sure, we should start planing, or even acting, what to do next when current energy sources will be unavailable and our climate will be so changed that we couldn't live on Earth.
