Nuclear power plants provide about 6% of the world’s energy and 14% of electricity.As a result of the current discussion how further global warming could be prevented or at least mitigated, the revival of nuclear power seems to be in everybody's - or at least in many politician's - mind.It it interesting to see that in many suggestions to mitigate global warming, the focus is put on the advantages of nuclear power generation, its disadvantages are rarely mentioned.On the other hand, nuclear energy is a non-renewable energy because of the scarcity of its source fuel, uranium, which has an estimation of about 30 to 60 years before it becomes extinct (Florida State University 1).Nuclear power has quite a number of pros associated with its use.The risks of nuclear power and the risks of nuclear waste are discussed in more detail.Nuclear power for me - nuclear waste for the others?The simple answer is that it is about the same as a coal, oil or natural gas power plant. The only difference is the material used that produces the heat. Therefore nuclear energy is We must not any longer shut our eyes to the consequences of our being on earth.Besides moral, ethical and spiritual reasons, at least for the pure will to survive we should consequently strive for a sustainable living and realize it in our personal life. Generally speaking, the electrical energy industry is aware of the substantial drawbacks of nuclear power generation.
