  • Yah we need it

    Some people think that nuclear energy is here to stay and we must learn to leave with it. Others say that we get rid of all nuclear weapons and power both sides has their cases as they are advantages and disadvantages to nuclear. Still others have opinions that fall somewhere in between.

    Nuclear energy is the solutions that ends the paradigm of consuming non-renewable fossil fuels and decreases the threats of climate change . Although it has its consequences that are more than just a climate change but this time is about our health and if there will be a safe world if this method is followed. Let’s look a way back where Chernobyl nuclear power plant has struck into the meltdown that left thousands of people sick and hundreds dead because of the radiation that destroys the living cells and can result in cancer, burns. It may be and if it is it must be designed inherently safe and operated responsible, to avoid meltdowns and unconditional hypercritics.

  • I think it is.

    There is a massive amount of energy available from splitting atoms. It could be used to power civilization for year. I think people deserve that energy and all it's benefit. Also most of the arguments against nuclear power are based of faulty logic and misinformation. Wind and solar are intermittent and the have poor power density. Without some new breakthrough I don't think they are up to the challenge providing power to 7 billion people.

  • It's clean and a great source of power.

    The world needs more and more energy if we wish to continue advancing as a society. Nuclear energy is great for the environment and unlike fossil fuel, will not have enviromentalists constantly hounding on it like they do with other forms of energy. Lets face it, we will not be able to run on solar and wind power. We need nuclear energy for the future.

    One of the problems with nuclear energy however, is that it creates waste that is hard to dispose of. However, with enough people working on getting rid of it, I am sure we could find a great solution. Nuclear power plants are getting safer all the time, so meltdowns will have an even less chance of occuring.

  • 100% Yes. Why are we hesitating?

    I believe that the long term answer to the world's energy supply lies either in hugely efficient solar power, or some sort of nuclear fusion. However, the time needed to develop these technologies is so far unknown, so why destroy the planet in the meantime?

    Nuclear power is by far the best form of energy we have at the moment. Far less destructive than burning fossil fuels - even taking into account accidents like Chernobyl and to a lesser degree Fukushima. So, until we do develop an effective, truly clean source of electricity, nuclear fission it is.

  • Energy is important

    France runs mainly on nuclear power, crazy right? Nuclear power doesn't create air pollution and it is safe. Nobody in america has died of a nuclear related reason. Uranium is provided from Russia from old Soviet Union bombs. Many more nuclear plants are being built around the world. How many are we trying to build: none.

  • Yes!!! The year is 2014, and modern technology has taken its toll in the world's economy.

    Sad to say, our country the Philippines is left behind due to passive beliefs on this issue. The reason is our too conservative point of views and our continuous opposition to government efforts. As a result, the government has lost its tooth in making decisive actions for the nation to develop its full potential and resolve its energy crisis.
    In a time where RH Bill is promulgated to eradicate poverty in our country, it is not taboo or inhumane to opt for modernization in the energy sector. Our dependency on the fossil fuel coming from the Middle East has made the Arabs filthy rich and our people poor. The effect is thick poisonuos smog covering our entire metropolis. Climate change has killed thousands of our countrymen in the provinces and has made us vow down to floods all over the country.
    If we are to achieve the goal of eradicating poverty, inadequacy of energy supply is one of the primary constraints on accelerating our countries growth rate. We are trying to expand all forms of energy production in a manner which takes care of concerns about environment.Our farmers need power for their pump sets to irrigate their fields. Many farming operations are now getting mechanized and these machines need electricity. Rural households need electricity. But it is an unfortunate fact that we are unable to meet this growing demand. Most of our people still live in villages without regular and reliable power supply.
    Our cities are being faced with the increase in demand of power. Electricity charges are getting higher by the minute. Even when electricity connections exist, most people experience power cuts and load shedding especially in stormy months.
    Hence, a major challenge before us is to increase the supply of electricity in the country. This will allow every one of our households to be lit inexpensively; it will allow our children to study under proper lighting at home and at school; it will allow our farmers, artisans and workers to use energy as a means of production; it will enable all of us to use electrical appliances that make life easier to live and, it will contribute to industrial development and better infrastructure and more efficient public transport.Our Government has been working hard to increase the supply of power in the country. There are many sources of energy supply. The most common means of generating electricity have been tapping the natural flow of rivers (hydro electricity) and burning natural gas and petroleum. Coal, gas and oil are all non-renewable resources.
    A fact that gave first world countries their firm hold on the third world countries. A fact that gave India and other developing countries a clear head start in technology. No investment took place without a risk.
    A tremendous potential for economic development, especially for a developing country aspiring to leapfrog technology gaps brought about by long years of colonial exploitation. Most scientists agree that pollution is contributing to global warming and to climate change.

  • No, its no the final answer

    Although nuclear energy possesses some exceptional features, like high effectiveness and low consumption, it will not and never be the answer to energy crisis. Just look at the radiation leaking accident of Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan, thousands of acres land was abundoned and eroded, not to say water and creatures live nearby. Even though safety precautions were taken, guess what disasters still happen. Just imagine millions of nuclear power plants were built on the earth, we are living in a heap of nuclear bombs!

  • One word: Chernobyl.

    Nothing is 100% fail-proof, many nuclear disasters, such as Chernobyl, have proven nuclear power to be too dangerous to use. Now we have safer clean energy sources (solar, wind, thermal, several others) so why should we take a risk and use nuclear power when we have safer options? Plus terrorists could attack and use the radiation to make an attack 100 times worse than 9/11.

  • The fact is that a nuclear power plant can easily be targeted by terrorists and I think that we need to find another source

    I think that Chernobyl can happen again if we use nuclear power it's a good easy target for terrorists and Islamic extremists and if the plan fails the whole u.S will turn into a radioactive wasteland and fallout would be bad and it would be hard to rebuild u.S government.

  • Nuclear energy has many problems

    Uranium is running out.It will only last for 40 years.Plutonium technology is still not developed.Nuclear power is too expensive $96/mWh , natural gases cost $64 .About 50% of difference.Economist from MIT has also expect the price to rise 15% annually.HAve u been to japan?Fukushima(where the nuclear power plant meltdown at)has became a waste land just like in the game fallout .There are many concerns about nuclear power.

  • It is not clean, and it is not sustainable

    Many people have misconception about nuclear energy.
    First, it is not a clean energy. Nuclear power facilities release a variety of cancer-causing radionuclides, including Tritium, Strontium-90, Cesium-137, Plutonium-239 and dozens more. Nuclear radiation seems “clean” only because you cannot see, feel, touch or smell it. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t released by nuclear reactors and other facilities. It is. It doesn’t take an accident: nuclear reactors emit radiation into our air and water as part of their routine, daily operations. And that it cannot easily be detected or avoided makes radiation even more dangerous.
    Also, nuclear power plants face constant danger of meltdown. Nuclear power holds the potential for a catastrophic accident that is unique among all energy sources—even failure of the largest dam
    would be unlikely to cause the same level of permanent destruction of a nuclear reactor meltdown. The Chernobyl accident has caused anywhere from 4,000 to 900,000 deaths, depending on which estimates one finds most compelling.
    Finally, if government wants to shut down a nuclear reactor, it needs tremendous effort for cooling as well as nuclear waste isolation. Once the waste leaks out, it pollutes the water and soil for up to 200,000 years.

  • The future consequences are too much

    Nuclear power may not create air pollution, but radiation could be worse, since radiation destructs the original form of DNA in all organisms, causing not only birth defects in one generation but all generations thereafter. No one has found a clear way to get rid of nuclear waste. One day, there will be so much nuclear waste and we won't be able to do anything about it.

  • 50% yes and 50% no

    Nuclear energy should not be alone. There are other, renewable options, such as Hydrogen fuel cells, which can generate enough electricity to power a car with two. Also, new fusion technologies are coming out, which are more efficient and can recycle fuel, never wasting any or pumping out any nuclear waste. There are alternatives, and they all have to work together in order to make a difference, along with nuclear energy.
