People are getting more and more concerned about the safety of nuclear power plants every year. Especially with the threats coming in from the middle east. Well let me reassure you that you have nothing to worry about. Nuclear power plants have tons of security. They have all types of disasters planned out so no matter if its a natural disaster or a terrorist attack there will be no danger of radioactivity in the area.
Nuclear energy is very safe. It is monitored every second of every day to prevent anything from going wrong. It creates very little amounts of pollution and waste. Although there have been nuclear accidents, there weren’t many people killed. Plus, there’s only been three nuclear accidents in the history of nuclear power with only one of them causing any casualties. Even though there’s little waste, it has to be held in a giant container. It uses less fuel than other means of power with the fuel lasting up to 17 years.
Overall nuclear energy is both safe and efficient with all the safety precautions they follow so there’s no need to build a fallout shelter in your backyard. Everything is monitored and everything can be shutdown safely in case of any problems. Nuclear energy is by far one of the most efficient forms of energy out there today and is very safe.
