Nuclear Energy

Is it really worth it?

What is it?

"Nuclear energy is the energy in the nucleus, or core, of an atom. Atoms are tiny units that make up all matter in the universe. Energy is what holds the nucleus together. There is a huge amount of power in an atoms dense nucleus. In fact, the power that holds the nucleus together is officially called the "strong force”. Nuclear energy can be used to create electricity, but it must first be released from the atom. In nuclear fission, atoms are split to release the energy." - National Geographic

So, is it worth it?

At first, it sounds really accurate to use nuclear energy. "Our lives would be so much better" you may think. But the thing is, not every country have the initial money to invest in this type of energy and always would be a high risk and a huge price to pay if something goes wrong. I think I would be able to decide it. I believe that everything has a good and a bad side, and nuclear energy is no different. So it's up to you: is it worth it?
