PEOPLE OF TUMBLR. PLEASE DEAR GOD LISTEN.
Nuclear power plants do NOT pollute the air. Do you see this picture? Those towers are cooling towers, which are used to cool down water for the nuclear power process. That steam coming out of the tower is clean, environmentally-friendly water vapor. It is not radioactive; it is not hazardous to the environment. In fact, a nuclear power plant produces ZERO harmful emissions during regular production. The only harmful byproduct of nuclear power plants is a small collection of used fuel cells that are replaced after every SIX YEARS of energy production. Six years in which that one reactor generated over TWO BILLION DOLLARS worth of clean energy production. And after the fuel cells are replaced, they are placed in contained storage, where they pose no threat to the environment. And, with the refinement of fusion power in the possible near future, even these harmless emissions will be completely eliminated.
So please, do us all a favor and stop being negligent about one of the best sources of clean energy in the world.
