    For the cause of energy creation ,than nuclear power plant should be build ,but if it is for the cause of destruction then it shouldn't be entertained.

    The different types or categories of nuclear waste make comparisons in efficiency with fossil fuel debatable. Today however, our ability to reuse much of the waste makes nuclear power the only conceivable, viable energy solution.
    A 1000 MW light water reactor generates 500 tons of nuclear waste per year. This number includes reusable waste, but does not consider the tonnage of solution nor the containment vessel of highly toxic material which is a very small portion of the total.
    A 1000 MW fossil fuel plant will generate about 400,000 tons of carbon waste products. This waste is a million times less persistent.(generalization).

      Why can't they use the waste radioactive material as it still has 90% of life left?

    It is a safe (for the past 40 years excluding bad Soviet designs), eco-friendly power source that doesn't put out carbon dioxide, and most importantly, can support the base load of the power grid without relying on the weather.
    The Japanese have some of the best designs in the world (Fukishima's quake, and its backup diesel generators for safety measures getting wiped out in a tsumani don't count in this discussion). They recycle the nuclear material to create new pellets, then dispose of the 3% spent waste. Thus they have 3% of the nuclear waste the US does.

      Out of what can work, I still think of  the Fukishma nuclear plant after the tsunami , and all the radioactive leakage into the Pacific ocean. All the sea life..food chain..us...the repercussions.

      With all the modern advancements its simply stupid that reactors are being built along watersheds. Put them in the desert and build a fricken canal and reservoir.
