Storyboard Text

  • what is the definition of the alternative form of energy? 
  • energy, as solar, wind, or nuclear energy, that can replace or supplement traditional fossil-fuel sources, as coal, oil, and natural gas.
  • what are nuclear energy flaws?
  • Costly nuclear power poses unnecessary safety and environmental risks, is heavily dependent on taxpayer and ratepayer subsidies, and generates deadly radioactive waste.
  • what are nuclear energy strengths?
  • The generation of electricity through nuclear energy reduces the amount of energy generated from fossil fuels (coal and oil).
  • how does nuclear energy work?
  • . Nuclear energy originates from the splitting of uranium atoms – a process called fission. This generates heat to produce steam, which is used by a turbine generator to generate electricity. Because nuclear power plants donot burn fuel, they do not produce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • where is nuclear energy used in the world?
  • Nuclear power plants generate 14 percent of the world's electricity, but some countries are more dependent on this power source than others.
  • Nuclear energy is a clean, safe, reliable and competitive energy source. It is the only source of energy that can replace a significant part of the fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas) which massively pollute the atmosphere and contribute to the greenhouse effect.
  • why is nuclear energy a good source of energy?
