Good neighbours do not build nuclear power plants where the land is prone to earthquakes.  Turkey plans to build a nuclear power plant on the Mediterranean Coast, at the city of Mersin. 
This is a concern for all of us who like to bathe in the warm waters of the Mediterranean and dream of the fantastic beaches of Greece and Turkey.  

Turkey should not proceed with its plans to build nuclear power plants, given their threat to human health and safety.   The plan for nuclear energy is a short term fix to a long term problem and  the potential consequences of nuclear power plants are far too dire to justify its construction.  There are less hazardous alternatives to fossil fuels.  Ok? Greenpeace says it better than me at this link
