Nuclear Energy

Thorough Description
Did you know that uranium demand will double by 2030. Uranium is the element used to produce nuclear power. It's the most dangerous way to produce energy. It's waste after a reaction can take several thousand years to subdue.
A reaction starts when the workers pull out the uranium rods. Heat is then generated by nuclear fission.Neutrons smash into the nucleus of the uranium atoms, which split roughly to release heat. Carbon dioxide gas or water is then pumped through the reactor to take heat away, this then makes steam. The steam then drives turbines which drive generators.
So, nuclear power plants are not prone to "meltdowns" or "explosions", they're just a more efficient, some-what cleaner way to produce energy.
