Images from Shutterstock.com Safety A nuclear power plant is actually safe, considering the waste produced, and for every 1 death by nuclear energy there are 4,000 for coal. Safety for workers is also required by the power plant/government. "There have been three major reactor accidents in the history of civil nuclear power - Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima. One was contained without harm to anyone, the next involved an intense fire without provision for containment, and the third severely tested the containment, allowing some release of radioactivity." (World Nuclear Association).
The risk of a terrorist attack is also minimal, having also minimize the likelihood of a meltdown. . "11 Facts About Nuclear Energy." Do something.org. Do something.org. Web. 16 Jan 2013. <http://www.dosomething.org/tipsandtools/11-facts-about-nuclear-energy>.

Efficient Nuclear energy accounts for about 20% of America's electricity and produces less waste than fossil fuel. [28grams of uranium =100metric tons of coal]. Waste is more compact and no greenhouse gas is given off, unlike coal or gas. Reliable source of energy, unlike solar,wind,hydro. Risks
