IS IT GOOD, IS IT BAD?
Nuclear Energy has always been a controversial subject and will continue to be so. While some consider Nuclear energy extremely dangerous basing their concern on its not so good history, but according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics it’s actually safer than manufacturing sector, real-estate and hospitality industries.
The statistics report Nuclear industry being one of the safest working places in the US. In 2014, the rate of industrial safety accidents reached a record low of 0.03 accidents per 200,000 worker-hours in 2014. Over the last decade, the number has been consistently notching down..
The pro- and anti-nuclear lobbies are always in friction over the issue, and well it’s difficult to decide who is right. This 3-video series from Kurzgesagt has tried to take up the issue in their hands and explained in simple terms how we get to where we are today in this field and where can we see the Nuclear technology going.
The very 1st video explains the Nuclear energy from its infancy stage back in 1940’s to it relatively saturating stage today.
The 2nd Video speaks in against to the use of Nuclear Energy or as the title says why is it terrible?
The final video supports the idea to why we must stick to the usage of Nuclear fuel.
