Nuclear power is it really a solution?

Nuclear power is it really a solution?

04/29/08 | by yevez | Categories: Environmental concerns, Global Economy, Society

Nuclear power plants cost a fortune to build and to maintain but it’s only the tip of the iceberg. For something as dangerous as it is, remember Tchernobyl and Three Miles Island anyone?, it also bares some long term costs that may not be worth their while. The extra costs come with the disposal of the extremely toxic and long lasting nuclear waste. As with every solution there are people who have economic interests in the process, same for nuclear.

Just give this video a look; it’s about the situation in England and the alternative solutions that could replace nuclear with a smaller footprint on the environment and, yes, smaller costs. It can be found on the Greenpeace UK website.
