Con's of having a power plant

Electricity is very dangerous. If kids get their hands into it, many bad things can happen. While the electricity is going out of the plant, it is 100x more powerful than the electricity found in your home. Touching a power plant is pretty much a guarantee for death. Don't be crazy, don't touch the plant! Along with this power plants cause a lot of pollution.
