PICTURES: Energy Risks: What's Holding Us Back?

A Libyan rebel fighter walks barefoot near burning tires as smoke rises from an oil refinery storage tank during a short break in clashes with Kadhafi loyalist forces on March 11, 2011 some 10 kilometers east of the key oil port of Ras Lanuf. Libyan rebels appealed for arms today as they sent fighters into battle against Moamer Kadhafi's advancing forces, as France and Britain urged targeted strikes in the oil-rich country.(ROBERTO SCHMIDT/AFP/Getty Images)

CORRECTION: The original version of this gallery misstated what exploded at the two Japanese nuclear power plants. Hydrogen gas exploded, leaving the nuclear reactors intact.

The continuing threat from meltdowns at multiple nuclear reactor sites following Japan’s earthquake are another reminder of the safety hazards posed by nuclear energy. But a look at other energy sources -- traditional as well as emerging -- shows that none of our options come without risk.
