Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Nuclear Energy Nuclear energy: Nuclear Energy is the energy released during nuclear fusion of fission. Nuclear energy and fossilfuels are actually notquite different. Theyboth are non renewablematerial meaning theyeventually will both runout. Pros: Low pollution, thorium,relatively low costs, and high energy density. Cons: Accidents occur, radioactivewaste, and the age of the technologyin the power plants. Location: Nuclear power plants arelocated all over the United States,as well as Japan, and India. NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS COULD ALSO BE DEVELOPED MORE THROUGHOUT THE WESTERN UNITED STATES. Allie Bennick In summary, the 7 reasons why we should say NO to nuclear power are: 1. Because it is not a fast enough response to climate change 2. Because it is too expensive 3. Because the need for baseload electricity is exaggerated 4. Because the problem of waste remains unresolved 5. Because it will increase the risk of nuclear war 6. Because there are safety concerns 7. Because there are better alternatives. An individual can use nuclearenergy for their own benefitbecause nuclear energy powerselectricity. Physicist Enrico Fermi discovered the potential of nuclear fission in 1934, when he bombarded uranium atoms with neutrons and was surprised to discover that the products of this reaction were much lighter than uranium. On December 2, 1942, Fermi created the first controlled, self-sustaining nuclear reaction, using uranium and control rods in a similar configuration to how they are used today.
