Nuclear power

Nuclear power is generated by the heat released in nuclear fission reactions. Although nuclear power is a sustainable energy source and relatively clean in terms of carbon dioxide emission, there has always been controversy surrounding this process due to threats posed to people and the environment through meltdown. Disasters such as those in Chernobyl and Fukushima highlight negative aspects of Nuclear power; the radioactive waste that comes as a by-product left over by Nuclear power station is also a cause for concern for many people.
