For years I have been opposed to Nuclear Power. I have studied Nuclear Fission and a variety of energy sources from Brown Coal to Wind Power. I understand the benefits and problems associated with each power source and can surmise that the future should not contain Nuclear Power. Firstly, we have a little possibility to destroy the nuclear waste as the it takes thousands of years to break down to safe levels. Secondly, whilst most modern reactors are built to strict standards we still have seen two great nuclear disasters in the last 30 years; one being Chernobyl and the other Fukushima.
I understand that nuclear can be clean and does not omit the level of pollution like coal yet, I do not beleive an energy source which has only viable resources for the next 100 years, is an option. Why must we use the most precarious techniques to extract energy?
I made a video on Chernobyl some years ago documenting the results of the nuclear fallout. Unfortunately due to copyright I cannot feature it however, I had a wonderful link to the work of Robert Knoth whom photographed Chernobyl survivors and a VICE You Tube documentary on Fukushima.
