Topics similar to or like Nuclear power debate

Long-running controversy about the risks and benefits of using nuclear reactors to generate electricity for civilian purposes. Wikipedia

  • Nuclear power phase-out

    Discontinuation of usage of nuclear power for energy production. Often initiated because of concerns about nuclear power, phase-outs usually include shutting down nuclear power plants and looking towards fossil fuels and renewable energy. Wikipedia

  • Nuclear power

    Use of nuclear reactions that release nuclear energy to generate heat, which most frequently is then used in steam turbines to produce electricity in a nuclear power plant. Nuclear power can be obtained from nuclear fission, nuclear decay and nuclear fusion reactions. Wikipedia

  • Nuclear power plant

    Thermal power station in which the heat source is a nuclear reactor. Typical of thermal power stations, heat is used to generate steam that drives a steam turbine connected to a generator that produces electricity. Wikipedia

  • Environmental impact of nuclear power

    The environmental impact of nuclear power results from the nuclear fuel cycle, operation, and the effects of nuclear accidents. The greenhouse gas emissions from nuclear fission power are much smaller than those associated with coal, oil and gas, and the routine health risks are much smaller than those associated with coal. Wikipedia

  • Anti-nuclear movement

    Social movement that opposes various nuclear technologies. Some direct action groups, environmental movements, and professional organisations have identified themselves with the movement at the local, national, or international level. Wikipedia

  • Nuclear energy policy

    National and international policy concerning some or all aspects of nuclear energy and the nuclear fuel cycle, such as uranium mining, ore concentration, conversion, enrichment for nuclear fuel, generating electricity by nuclear power, storing and reprocessing spent nuclear fuel, and disposal of radioactive waste. Nuclear energy policies often include the regulation of energy use and standards relating to the nuclear fuel cycle. Wikipedia
