Water. . Does this photo make you worry about air pollution'? Well, don' t!. Everyone is talking about nuclear energy, but they dont realize that propane is cheap,clean burning fuel that does not change the taste of the meat your cooking

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..

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.

are there really people above the age of 12 who don't know this?

carefull science ahead: Although true that it's not directly harmful for humans (seeing how it is just water) ... it still raises the temperature in the direct environment which also count's as a form of "polution"

In this poor economic climate even nuclear power stations have to get second jobs as cloud factories

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't nuclear power plants generate a lot of waste though?

Modern nuclear power plants, unlike those at Fukushima Japan have so much redundancy built into their safety measures that they're extremely unlikely to cause harm from malfunctions. Nuclear waste is a problem though.

I'm hoping that progress on fusion reactors will speed up soon, or more will be done in thorium reactors. The US gave up on thorium in the 70's because their focus was on producing material for nuclear weapons, which throium reactors couldn't do. Instead, one of our national laboratories gave their reactor plans to a Chinese diplomat, after which China began their thorium program.

Fusion is being worked on by an international collaboration in France. However, a recent story came out regarding cold fusion. NASA is experimenting with metal hydrides, hydrogen gas, and terahertz frequencies. The terahertz frequencies are hard to control, but when the whole setup is working it reportedly releases prodigious amounts of energy and melts the glass in the laboratory.

what do you suggest to do with it then?

Not everyone is going to stop posting things from cracked just because you saw it, I havent seen this today, just like a large majority of everyone else.

slightly radioactive water vapor, since it is being used to cool a nuclear reaction....
User avatar #90 to #84 - nicrofl (07/26/2013) [-]
um... the nuclear reactor evaporates water so the steam can make energy... not to cool it. The steam is not radioactive, those things are very safe. The downside is disposing the waste.

Seeing as every 12 year old has posted their knowledge in the comments to argue/support nuclear stuff, i'll join in.

Pros:
>Nuclear power plants are clean and efficient who's only immediate byproduct is water vapor
>They emit almost no harmful radiation. Fertilizers, Nike shoes, and granite counter tops produce more radiation than is allowed in the outer layer of housing for the reactor core itself.
>It allows a steady level of power that emits an even output over extended periods of time

Cons:
>It is basically a controlled explosion that can go wrong if a series of errors occurs
>It can effect local ecosystems if the water is pumped back into rivers
>The depleted fuel rods turn into Plutonium which need to be stored at special deep mine or mountain facilities

they also release water into rivers that is too hot to live in which kills many fish living downstream :/

I sure wish there was a way to use the waste heat produced from power stations instead of cooling it. I mean that is a lot of wasted heat.
