Is Nuclear energy a menace? or the future? Should the recent events in Japan define how we think about nuclear power forever? Why or why not? Are there any major sources of power without risks or downsides?
I don’t know much abut this topic. But i’ll try.
Nuclear energy is definitely the future.
It is here to stay in spite of all happenings in Japan. Of course, we have to lot of things into consideration while finding a place for the nuclear plant. It has to be in an area where the probability of natural disasters occurring is very low. Or it should be in a low populated area. Even then, we won’t be 100% sure that nuclear plants are safe.
Nuclear power will be abandoned only when we find an energy resource which has no side effects or danger.
