6.06 Nuclear Power
Why do I think nuclear power is a bod idea?
I believe that nuclear power is a bad idea. Why do I think nuclear power is a bad idea, you may ask. I personally think it is a bad idea because for one thing nuclear power cost too much!! "In mid-March, Progress Energy informed state regulators that the twin 1,100 MW nuclear power plants it intends to build in Florida would cost $14 billion, which "triples estimates the utility offered a little more than a year ago.

I also think that it is a bad idea because in 1979 at Three Mile Island, the nuclear power plant in the USA had a cooling malfunction which caused part of its core to melt in the second reactor. And the TMI-2 reactor was destroyed. Some radioactive gas was released a couple of days after the accident, but not enough of the gas was released to harm any of the local residents. There were no injuries or antagonistic health effects from the Three Mile Island accident.

That is why I believe Nuclear power is a terrible idea. If you disagree with me why don't you look up my sources and tell me that if you are in a nuclear accident and you happen to get ill from it then you can say I'm right and you're wrong and I'm big and you're small. Thank You and have a fantastic Friday everyone!!
