There is much debate surrounding the use of nuclear energy. Nuclear power plants emit relatively low amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2). Given the low emissions of green house gases, the creation of nuclear powercontributes very little to global warming, unlike fossil fuels, whose emissions are seen as responsible for climate change. Also, one power plant can generate a substantial amount electrical energy. With such high yield, nuclear energy is considered efficient and profitable.
However, any people reject nuclear energy as an option because of safety concerns. First, nuclear waste can be extremely dangerous and must be carefully stored over many years, resulting in high costs. Also, accidents in nuclear power plants can lead toserious consequences for human and natural life. In light of these potentially devastating outcomes, many people question the viability of nuclear energy as an alternative to fossil fuels.
