3 Reasons Why Nuclear Energy Is Terrible!

Nuclear energy might be a failed experiment. In over sixty years the technology has not only failed to keep its promise of cheap, clean and safe energy, it also caused major catastrophes and enabled more nuclear weapons while the nuclear waste problem is still not solved.

As someone who is extremely pro-nuclear, I do enjoy watching videos like this. Many people paint this sort of thing as black and white, when it is far from that. To forward ourselves, we must look at the failures and risks that come with moving forward. We aren’t always going to win and things aren’t always going to turn out perfect. It’s a fact of life we must accept. We prepare for the worst, fix what we can, then move on to the next thing. It’s what we’ve always done. That being said, I do think the pros in the nuclear energy industry vastly outweigh the cons, though it is frustrating to see how weapons have benefited from it.

Both Chernobyl and Fukushima happened because corners were cut and safety precautions were ignored. They were both completely avoidable. It annoys me so much that one of the most efficient forms of fuel isn’t completely viable because of human carelessness
