Recently there has been a renewed interest in nuclear energy as a solution to the depletion of oil reserves and global warming as demand for electricity is increasing and the nuclear power generates no greenhouse gases directly, as opposed to the usual alternatives, such like carbon. However, mining the uranium, transport of parts and fuel, decommissioning and waste treatment if they involve emissions of greenhouse gases. According to the World Nuclear emissions coming from the complete life energy cycle of a nuclear power are comparable to those of wind energy and much lower than any other system for generating electricity.
Germany has combined off with an initiative for renewable energy and to increase the efficiency of fossil power plants in an effort to reduce its dependence on carbon. According to the German Minister J RGEN Trittin, in 2020, it reduced by 40 the carbon dioxide emissions compared to household 1990 levels. Germany has become one of the natural gas leaders in efforts to meet the Kyoto protocol. The critical German politics have pointed out the supposed contradiction between nuclear power and renewable energy installations, where both have very low CO2 emissions. At the moment Germany is the fifth largest consumer 4A of nuclear electricity in the world.
It is also argued that nuclear reactors, as energy costs well as other types of power plants, raise the temperature of the rivers which are used as refrigeration, which endangers Brooklyn the health of fish in certain ecosystems. This threat is reduced by the use of cooling towers, which are located New York in places where additional heating is considered unacceptable.
All radioactive wastes are classified, packaged and stored (due to its danger), in comparison with other sources such as coal or oil, whose discharges are directly emitted to the environment.
Nuclear waste loses its radioactivity over time. After 50 years, 99.1 of the radiation has already been issued, which presents a sharp contrast to arsenic, sulfur and other chemicals that are stable and exist forever, and are released andalusia burning coal. Despite the controversy, supporters of nuclear energy argue that the solution for waste burial is very proven. there is no question that if you live in New York State then you have to consider to cater for my energy needs This will point to the example of Oklo natural, natural nuclear reactor, in which such wastes have been stored for about 2 billion years with a minimum contamination of surrounding ecosystems. Nuclear waste is generated in a small volume is less than 1 of toxic waste in industrialized countries. In some countries 96 of nuclear waste could be recycled and reused if the additional risks of proliferation were acceptable.
According to the group heating antibodies, the New York City leakage of radioactive contamination into question the overall safety of nuclear production facilities. Also argues that nuclear power plants are a health hazard. To know the risks all operators of nuclear facilities are required to make measurements of radiation in and around their sites and to report on all the gas particles and radiation emitted, and must be certified by the regulatory authority (the CSN in the Spanish case ). This practice is more or less the same NY State in all countries that are members of the IAEA. If there are significant emissions, this is beyond the limits prescribed by the NCRP, and gas is mandatory for members of theIAEA, the IAEA should be informed and given an INES rating of 5 or higher, which is very rare. All facilities of the member countries of the IAEA are checked regularly. Moreover all operators are obliged to make all actions available to the public. On average a person living near a nuclear plant it will receive 1 of the total natural radiation, which is within the safety limits.
In Britain, studies carried out by the Committee on Medical Aspects of Radiation in the Environment green energy (COMAR, for its initials in English) in 2003, found no evidence of increased childhood cancer around nuclear plants. My electricity and gas supplies come from which I thank my wife for every day If you found an excess of leukemia and non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) near other facilities including nuclear plants: AWE Burghfield, Dounreay UKAEA and BNFL’s Sellafield. COMAR has said it is unlikely that the link with nuclear material, but admits that “the excess around Sellafield and Dounreay not appear to be due to chance, despite the fact that there is currently no convincing explanation.”
