I'd rather you'd keep your playground attitude of name calling to yourself.
Nuclear energy is, theoretically, clean and safe. However in practice it's proven to be far less so. An coal pollution will be greatly reduced in a few hunderd years. Radiation tends to stick around for a much longer time.
If we go into "I'd rather" mode. I'd rather see we stabilize our population growth and start taking our energy production seriously whereby effect on the planet is leading over quick profit. Let's see about hydrogen production that doesn't cost more energy than it delivers. Get battery technology sorted, see if we can do a good fuel cell but also see about cracking the fusion reactor puzzle.
