It made sense!. .. Well, technically they are. They are cooling towers, which release water vapor, which are basically clouds. pic unrelated

How wind is made
#3 to #2 - anon (05/01/2013) [-]
If that was supposed to be a reply to me, that is not a plant. That is basically a turbine on its own, hence the spinning. All power plants heat water to create steam to spin a turbine.

technically, this is true since H2O IS a greenhouse gas.

No, the atmosphere is of course full of water vapor naturally from the sea and stuff. Soo releasing does not really do any harm :)

love Swift btw<3

yeeah absolutely. the amount of weed in the atmosphere is crazy :D jk i get what you mean :) naah i guess you can get addicted to weed. not the same as green tea!

More "dangerous." The reason for the push against CO2 is because of numerous reason, including but not limited to: its evident existence, its widespread production, and that humans can (to a degree) control how much is produced.

on a side note, what anime is this from?
User avatar #189 to #179 - wowcreep (05/03/2013) [-]
sifl and olly revamp by machinama. it was an old mtv show from the 90's
machinima recently made an episode of game reviews using sifl and olly puppets
User avatar #190 to #189 - menqudoneix (05/03/2013) [-]
that's... not an anime. though it's good to know, I'm looking for the source on bangala's reaction image. I can't get much more specific...

Am I the only one who gets pissed off by most peoples response to Nuclear power?

People just instantly go "ER MA GHERD, we're all gonna die!" and have no god damn idea about it at all
User avatar #66 to #41 - infinitereaper (05/02/2013) [-]
The only problem with nuclear plants is some sort of radioactive byproduct we know nothing about.

I read in it in a science magazine a few years back. Apparently we're making it by the ******** .
User avatar #120 to #66 - eddymolly (05/02/2013) [-]
Useful, an unknown product we know we're making. What is it then if we know we're making it?

You really think these people are that dumb? In reality, the chemicals that are byproduct of making almost everything in your daily life are just as dangerous, if not more, as the waste made by a nuclear plant.
User avatar #135 to #99 - infinitereaper (05/02/2013) [-]
No, I just remember reading it was called something with numbers behind it. Its very vague, I read it when I was like 15. I can't remember.
User avatar #187 to #135 - Fgner (05/03/2013) [-]
No problem, we've all read wrong information at some point.
User avatar #188 to #187 - infinitereaper (05/03/2013) [-]
Well I'm not really sure because its fuzzy, but I'm fairly certain there was something. It was a very small byproduct.

I'm more pissed by those eco-friendly groups who using nuclear plant's water cooler as their logo to fight pollution.
User avatar #53 to #45 - romanprinsonerr (05/02/2013) [-]
nuclear plants still give off thermal pollution so there not all pollution free
#43 to #41 - yunnie (05/02/2013) [-]
yes you are right

people in my country banned the use of nuclear as the source of electricity but the truth is they don't know **** about it. this is the cause why electricity in my country so ******* expensive

nuclear plants wont kill you
high electric bill does
#44 - awesomechardey (05/02/2013) [-]
What goes in the air is just steam of water. So technically, they are cloud factories. Such a nice name for those

hydrogen is ******* expensive stuff. nobody would just blow this **** into the atmosphere. They heat water, to move turbins, to generate electricity. And what comes from the top of the nuclear plants is the steam of this hot water.

About how elektricity is made, using nuclear power. Did you think you take some green glowing stone, and it will magically produce electricity? You have to move a ******* turbine, to get the lights on.

Omg, I thought that too. When I was little, I was riding in a car with my mom, saw it and asked if that's where clouds come from. She was sure to write what I said down for future laughter at my expense.

<--- how it made me feel
User avatar #164 to #100 - nicoquitemad (05/02/2013) [-]
clouds are steam, that is steam, not a big difference imo.

They are.

technically, they are.   
   
What you see coming off of those cooling towers is water vapor.   
That's what clouds are made of...

oh boy
User avatar #55 - Mozzak (05/02/2013) [-]
But they are! That's just vapor.
#158 - orkonis (05/02/2013) [-]
That's not a nuclear power plant specific thing. Those are coolant towers. They cool the water that is used to turn the turbines you already stopped reading this so why am I still typing?

That is actually rater cute.
#121 - andovaredoras (05/02/2013) [-]
When i was young, i thought they got like 'actual' nuclear power there, you know, the glowy green type. Then i found out they just..

---Heat the water to turn it into steam to spin some turbines---
(or something like that)....

Oh the disappointment.....
#124 to #121 - pearfield (05/02/2013) [-]
They do that to split atoms, leaving radioactive waste.

he mean to say that he used to think they could harness the nuclear energy directly.
#165 to #124 - montybalboa ONLINE (05/02/2013) [-]
Is that how it works? I thought the fuel rods decayed by themselves and output heat in the form of gamma radiation, maybe there's different types
#192 to #165 - pearfield (05/03/2013) [-]
I don't actually know the process to making energy, to answer your question. I just know that they split atoms.
#191 to #165 - pearfield (05/03/2013) [-]
It's not really how it works. The steam that comes out is just water they used to cool down the reactor. A serious amount of energy and heat is being produced, so they really need to cooling part.
User avatar #127 to #124 - andovaredoras (05/02/2013) [-]
Yes. I studied nuclear physics. Now i know that already.

Used to work in one one these. They use radioactive **** science and magnets to heat water. The 'smoke' is just the heated water vapor that spins turbines to produce electricity.
Those are cooling towers.

So I guess he's not 'wrong'. In the sense that clouds are just water vapor.
User avatar #90 - grocer (05/02/2013) [-]
Nuclear rights fags all put photos of the cooling towers over their **** . They reckon people will think that they are giving off pollution.
User avatar #32 - agwd (05/02/2013) [-]
But a cloud is water vapour so technically they kinda do that anyways.
#174 - klutzyspy (05/02/2013) [-]
well they pretty much are...
