Waste- Nuclear waste is extremely harmful if exposed to it and is a critical question that remains
about nuclear power generation. The United States Environmental Protection Agency says that nuclear waste has to be looked
after for over 10,000 years.
High Risk- While nuclear power
plant security is very strong, there is always the risk of devastation. Humans and nature alike would be affected if an accident
were to occur. The probablitiy of a meltdown or accident occuring increases with the number of plants produced.
Nuclear Weapons- Radioactive waste can be used to create nuclear bombs, a fear of all mankind.
Availability and Time- Nuclear energy is not a renewable resource so therefore it will run out eventually. It also takes
20-30 years to plan and build new power plants, which leads to the question, is it worth the effort?
