Is Nuclear Power Safe for Humans and the Environment?

  • If done correctly yes

    Chernobyl happened because they disabled the safety systems for a test, Faction happened because of a tsunami, these are lessons most nuclear power plants are ready fore, like don't disable the safety systems, and be prepared for a HUGE natural disaster, in all, nuclear power is a lot cleaner than coal or oil, wind and solar are not efficient enough to provide, but nuclear is clean, safe, and efficient. Do not be brainwashed people

  • Safer than any other source

    Nuclear power has 0.04 deaths per terawatt-hour, there have been only three major accidents, and working in a nuclear power plant is safer than even working in a office. Our radiation dose from nuclear power is only the equivalent of eating one banana a year.

    It's very safe !

  • Safe unless neglected

    In the years since nuclear power first began to be used, there have been very few major incidents, and only 3 actual failures since the start. Fukushima, 3 Mile Island, and Chernobyl are to this day the only significantly major incidents with issues in nuclear containment or protocol with safety.

  • When Done Properly

    Nuclear power is clearly not short on it's dangers, especially when protocols for safety are not followed. I believe it can be safe for humans and the environment if we always remind ourselves that safety is the utmost important thing involved with the process. I believe nuclear power has the potential to be more beneficial to us, then it is harmful.

  • Nuclear power can be safe.

    Nuclear power can be a safe source of energy for humans and the environment but only if it is utilized properly. The world needs to be aware of the power they are workign with and work towards using it in the safest manor possible so as to avoid any big problems.

  • Nuclear power is much safer than many alternatives.

    Although there is a general distrust of nuclear energy because, historically, problems with nuclear energy have been of disaster proportions, nuclear energy is actually much safer than many alternatives, including natural gas and oil. Even there have been incidents regarding nuclear energy, the fact remains that in relation to the amount of nuclear power plants around the world, those incidents are far and few between.

  • Yes if done properly

    Nuclear power is safe to use if used correctly. There is still a lot we need to learn from nuclear power. If we make sure it is used in locations that are well protected and kept safe from melt downs then it is safe and probably going to be necessary for the future.

  • Yes if dealing with correct

    This source of energy can be safe for humans if we are dealing with this correct. Nuclear energy needs to be dealt with in a safe way however, we often see things that may go wrong. If we improve our safety with these conditions this can be a great source of energy.

  • Safe when Used Correctly

    Nuclear power can very much be safe for both humans and the environment as long as nuclear power is used wisely and correctly. Though scenarios such as 3 Mile Island and Russia's Cherenobyl come to mind when people discuss nuclear disasters, these are two disasters that have occured among hundreds of different operating plants.

  • Safety is yet unknown.

    Since the radioactive materials are dangerous to living organisms for such a long time, we cannot truly know the long term impact of nuclear power generation. It is safe IF properly maintained and the power plants are in good working order. It is when accidents occur and final remediation and cleanup of a site is required, when we see the true problems of nuclear power generation. If we take into consideration there is no known way to dispose of nuclear waste, other than burial, then this high tech solution, does not seem so high tech anymore. When we consider the cost and time required to cleanup after a nuclear power plant once decommissioned, then we find it is not as great or safe as it seems. Nuclear sites, and current waste disposal procedures, way continue to impact health and safety at those locations for thousands of years. The total impact on the health of the planet and its life, will therefore not be known or calculable for thousands of years.

  • Not A Chance!

    If it was safe then we wouldn't have stories of Chernobyl and Fukushima haunting us, would we? Wake up, folks! There is nothing natural, nor environmentally friendly about nuclear energy of any kind. Is it normal to glow with radiation, or a habitat become impossible to consider home for years and years? Anything Nuclear is way too dangerous.

  • It is not.

    Nuclear power is not safe for human and the environment. Producing nuclear power can be very dangerous as you all know, there is a chance there could be a meltdown and the plant could explode, releasing all of that stuff into the air. It also produces a lot of harmful waste.

  • "For profit" companies take unsafe shortcuts.

    In Crystal River Florida, Florida Power tried to save money by engineering its own in-house damage repairs. Ultimately their repairs failed. The cost to repair their repairs exceded their desire to invest. They sold the plant to Duke Energy to escape responsibility. The nuclear reactor is offline. Duke has not and may never complete repairs. We now have reative nuclear material housed for no purpose with no safe disposal on the horizon. Florida Power created the problem by poor decision making and has removed itself from the responsibility for a solution.
