Nuclear power plants produce radioactive waste that is toxic for thousands of years and cannot be safely discarded without massive expense. Additionally, the risk of nuclear accidents from radiation leakages or meltdowns, like those experienced in Fukushima and Chernobyl, are a constant danger. Furthermore, the cost associated with building nuclear plants is extremely high, in part due to the technological complexity necessary to ensure safety. With these considerations in mind, it may be time to reconsider our trust in nuclear energy being a clean fuel for the world's future.
