The darker side of solar power


Recommended Posts

No it's the fact that the waste from nuclear fission is extremely hazardous. You don't want nuclear waste to get into any water table. Add to the fact when accidents happen, the repercussions are horrific. Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, Fukushima. In addition, when a plant gets shut down. You don't just dismantle it. You actually have to bury the thing in concrete. Canada has one of the best safety records in nuclear. But despite the efficiency, the risks are not to be taken lightly.

If you add up the effects of fossil fuel alternatives, it's far worse. Global warning, mining, tanker spills, tar sands etc..

The issue is misinformation and overreactions to easily avoidable accidents.
