Because of the waste it creates. The radioactive waste that is a byproduct of nuclear energy is harmful to the environment, and we really have no real solution for it. Also there is the potential for a meltdown, like what happened on 3 Mile Island in the 70’s. Currently we are storing nuclear waste on Yucca Mountain, which is located in Nevada. More information on that storage site can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yucca_Mountain.
