yea because nuclear power plants are so clean right? haha we are so stupid its perfectly safe.. whoever created this post, if you think its so safe why dont you move near NPP and raise your kids there..

Actually, workers can get more radiation from their homes then when they work at the plant.

The Leftover material from coal power plants gives off more radiation then the waste from a nuclear power plant. Much more.

NPPs, when correctly regulated, have the lowest death count and environmental impact to power produced ratio of currently used large scale energy production. And the safest way to dispose of nuclear waste is to put it into lead lined barrels and put them somewhere no one will be affected by it. No one gets hurt, and the waste will become inert before the barrels decompose.

As of right now, fission energy is the best answer we have for global energy. If thorium becomes the ideal fission material we will never have a problem with energy again... before the sun dies atleast.

Are you honestly stupid enough to think that fully educated nuclear scientists would allow nuclear contamination into the air- propelled by steam no less? At the very worst, this steam doesn't need to be wasted.

The nuclear power plant itself is relatively safe, very few emissions are given off from nuclear reactors themselves. The problem is the waste they leave behind that can't be used for power. It's funny that Physicists that have deeply studied into the field have determined that it's completely safe to use but apparently people that have spent 5 minutes on Wikipedia know enough to denounce their entire life's work.

I've taken great interest in liquid salt reactors, thorium specifically. It could use the waste from our existing plants as fuel, and I believe 90% of its waste is stable in a decade, the remainder in a century- as opposed to 10,000 years or so for current nuclear waste. It also runs off thorium, a "Rare Earth Metal" so common and unused as to date we can extract hundreds of tons on demand and process it cheaply. We may as well be burning soil, it's pretty crazy.

I wasn't ******** on Wikipedia, just simply pointing out that five minutes on Wikipedia does not equal the same level of understanding as someone with a P.H.D. Wikipedia is actually pretty useful if you want to have a basic understanding of a subject but don't have the time to go too in depth into it.

Well...They do a daily/weekly/monthly release of radiation into the atmosphere, which significantly increases cancer rates in surrounding areas....
Sure it "safe" in that it probably wont meltdown and make land uninhabitable for a few thousand years...but at the cost of how many affected lives?
Here in Sacramento, the cancer rate has decreased by 300% since the closing of Rancho Seco Nuclear Station. That is no coincidence.

Safe for people in the vicinity of the reactor, but might be dangerous for the technicians working on the reactor itself and performing maintenance. Worker safety might need to be improved.

Just so you know, uranium power plants are chosen over thorium power plants because the U.S army and politicians want to weaponize the depleted uranium that's released as a byproduct. That, and the nuclear waste that comes with it too, probably. Might explain why there are barely any thorium power plants.

Nope. A Nuclear generator is an almost entirely enclosed system based on a decaying core with nuclear energy controlled by rods that can block the reaction as needed in a sealed and reinforced container that is only exposed to water which is heated by the nuclear reaction to turn turbines, and passed through cold water (like a river or lake) via a closed piping system to restart the sequence. There really isnt much waste produced in a closed system.

Pretty much, but the risk is still there, albeit a small one, of turning a county into a radioactive wasteland if a melt down were to occur. That is pretty much why everyone dislikes nuclear power plants to begin with.

Never said they werent safe, they definetly arent perfectly safe. As for waste produced by general (correct and properly maintained) use, its not very much. When poorly maintained though, it can end up with a disaster.
