Nuclear energy creates an uneasy feeling of danger for many people: ancient and dangerous minerals are concentrated to awaken seemingly unnatural powers, creating toxic elements that, if they escape, can and have killed people in horrible ways. How many people has nuclear energy killed and how?

    I’m gonna be very stupid for a second plz don’t judge. Why don’t we use steam to power different things, like assign different ways of making energy to different needs for example let’s say we could just use solar power for our homes and if when we don’t have access to the sun due to like clouds we could use like a generator that we have stored that’s been charged by the solar panels yk.. I’m dumb for that nvm..

    • viktor1496

      23 klukkustundum síðan

      yes! You can either chemically extract the dangerous parts of the waste which leaves you with just uranium that can be re-used (MOX fuel) Or you can use new fast neutron reactor types like the thorium reactors that are being built in China right now. If you let spent fuel rods sit in those for a while, when they come out they're only dangerous for approx 300 more years. Much more reasonable

      It's harsh but they'll have to transfer to new jobs over time. New types of energy bring new jobs as well Of course it's up to the government to help those people re-educate themselves or to make sure they can transition to new jobs. But that's a social issue

      Ignorant answer, An energy grid can not run on 100% wind/solar. With current battery tech we can achieve 40-50% at most (still considerably higher than what we have now) The rest needs to be filled up with regulatable sources: Hydro, Fossil fuels or nuclear. Air pollution by fossil fuels kills millions every year. Hydro is at least as dangerous as nuclear and is reaching its limit, there are only so many rivers to be dammed. So do you want air pollution and global warming or nuclear and temporarily deal with the nuclear waste problem?

      @ozan baş With current battery tech, we can only at maximum use around 40% solar/wind. Please tell me which energy source you would suggest for the remaining 60%?

      @viktor1496 in my point it is not acceptible. there is far more harmless and riskfree options out there

      @ozan baş And that's the point, air pollution by fossil fuels kills millions every year. Hydrodams destroy their environment and ecosystem and have killed many in cases of failure. Compared to that, a nuclear disaster every few decades if far preferable. Especially if it remains as limited as it did in Fukushima.

      @ozan baş Those numbers include all predicted cancers and premature deaths caused by radiation leaks. In Fukushima, practically no one got a dangerous dose of radiation contrary to Chernobyl. After 10 years, there are no noticeable increases in risks for cancers...etc for those who lived around the reactor. It's you who is looking for death and destruction where there is none.

      @viktor1496 you only see numbers of direct kills. that is selfish and unethical. you have to consider all effects. like how fossil burning contaminate air and cause death of millions, spread of leaked nuclear radiation, poisining the earth, water, oceans by ditching the nuclear waste can not be ignored. they have long lasting effects. you may like "mutants" in hollywood, it doesn't work like that irl.

    there is a thing called "Carbon capture and storage", doesnt that make fossil fuel burning better than nuclear?

      CCS is expensive and under developed. It might be a solution in the future, but not in the coming decades.

    I think the problem is that people can use the big explosions and disasters from Chernobyl and Fukushima to demonize nuclear energy, and don't realize that while not as dramatic, air pollutions kills many, many more.

      @Kharkov Luzhin My argument for nuclear? Clean air, far less CO2, stable power source ideal for the base load, future potential with new generations of reactors, safety (really, 2 accidents in 30 years are the problem?) and much less waste compared to every other power source.

      @deadbeef nope, my argument is about 1000 people die a year is less compared to than fossils energy in the same circumstances, more over, we had found somewhat of a way to recycle the nuclear waste just not efficient, while we have no idea how to stop fossils fuels from polluting the air and absolutely no way to fix what happens to the atmosphere. What is your argument?
