ABSTRACT
The article talks about nuclear power. When thinking of nuclear people, many think that it is generated from small amounts of highly radioactive material, safely encased in vast concrete bunkers, generating an endless and constant supply of clean electricity. The cost is expensive and there are problems with nuclear wastes but it might be the answer to climate changes.
