Nuclear Energy By: Cole Lounsbery

What is Nuclear Energy?

Nuclear Power is the use of nuclear reactions that release nuclear energy to generate heat, which most frequently is then used in steam turbines to produce electricity in a nuclear power plant.


· The risk of meltdown will always plague reactors and even though technology is advancing if something does go completely wrong the public is in great danger.

· Nuclear waste is pilling up in lead containers which over time do corrode again posing a major health risk.

· Although running costs are low, reactors are expensive to build and to decommission

· Technology used to purify fuel needed for a nuclear reactor can very easily also be used for creating nuclear weapons

· The general public is very sceptical and somewhat afraid of nuclear power so building them could lead to protests and denial of acceptance.
