Is Nuclear Energy Really As Inexpensive as the Nuclear Industry Claims?
When I see nuclear industry representatives interviewed, they often claim that electricity produced by nuclear power plants is relatively cheap when compared to other forms of electricity generation. However, as I point out in my Hub "The Hidden Costs of Nuclear Energy", they are leaving out the many hidden costs that the nuclear power industry does not have to pay due to public subsidies.
No. It is not. It is not clean energy. It uses an enormous amount of ground water, and the waste by products are hot for a minimum of 10,000 tears...that costs all of us.
I don't think so. What will be the long term costs of storing all that waste, something that hasn't even been done yet?
