How Nuclear power is "A target for Terrorists, and a source of nuclear weapons."
"Nuclear power belongs in the dustbin of history; It is a target for terrorists, and a source of nuclear weapons." Greenpeace International states. We all know that in this time, threats for terrorism is large. By adding nuclear power plants to crash planes into, its pretty much a hot spot for terrorists. Sure you can have high security, but that didn't seem to work out so well for the twin towers. If the world relays more and more on nuclear energy, its creating more chances and opportunities for terrorists to attack. If they did attack nuclear power plants it would be about the equivalent amount of radiation that Hiroshima and Nagasaki had when the U.S dropped the two atomic bombs. Terrorist attacks may not be happening left and right if we got more dependent on nuclear power, but terrorist attacks are bound to happen eventually, and we need to save many innocent lives.
