    earthquake and tsunami hit Japan causing a nuclear accident at three Fukushima Daiichi reactors. The accident caused three nuclear meltdowns and the release of radioactive materials” (“Nuclear Energy”). This accident is the exact type of incident that often holds people back from an environmentally friendly energy source. This article goes on to say that everybody in the area was evacuated and deaths were only results of the natural disasters and not the nuclear leak. Additionally, accidents have occurred

    Nuclear energy is not the most talked about debate, but one of the most important because of the impact it has on the future of the earth. It has grown to be one of the leading sources of energy in Europe. The U.S. does not use nuclear energy as much, but are looking to add ore nuclear power plants. The way nuclear energy is formed is through a long process that starts by splitting an atom. The first people to do so were the German scientists, Lise Meitner and Otto Hahn. After their study along with

    after several years, such as carbon emissions. However, nuclear energy damages the earth to an extent that could remain for several million years. Energy resources such as carbon emissions are decomposable after several years, yet nuclear energy appears to produce the greatest amount of damaging effects to this planet. Nuclear waste can remain deadly on earth’s surface for millions of years. Many citizens may have some form of knowledge on nuclear energy, but are not well informed about it. This form

    Nuclear fission is a cost-effective, and relatively clean way to generate power. Since, the mid-1940’s, with the formation of the first atomic bombs, engineers have worked on improving nuclear power. In the 1970’s and 80’s nuclear power plants were built in cities to provide power for homes, workplaces, and other facets of life. Nuclear reactions were not well understood by the general public and therefore nuclear engineers inherited a certain status. Also as a result, nuclear power plants raised
