  1. 1. Nuclear Power<br />Energy of the future<br />By: Kerri, Samiyah, Lukas, Tashana, Mackenzie.<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. U.S.: The U.S. has the most reactors and generates the most electricity from nuclear energy. <br />There is only one reactor currently under construction. [2003: probably finished by now.] <br />Nuclear energy generates about 20 percent of U.S. electricity. <br />Early problems with reliability have been mainly overcome, and nuclear plants have reached an average of 75 percent availability. <br />Republicans generally favor resuming construction, and Democrats generally oppose it. <br />2003: Reliability is now over 90 percent.<br />Facts About Nuclear Energy<br />
  4. 4. We need to find a more efficient energy source that doesn’t create pollution. <br />Wind, solar, and hydroelectric energy generators produce less then 1% of useable energy and fossil fuels creates pollution.<br />Building more nuclear power plants will create more useable energy.<br />The Problem<br />
  5. 5. Obama On Nuclear Energy<br />
  6. 6. Taxes on the oil and gas industry are making it difficult for many citizens to pay for energy.<br />The federal Energy Policy Act of 2005 provided the nuclear industry with a variety of financial incentives for new nuclear power plants. <br />The Economy and Energy<br />
  7. 7. How Can We Fix the Problem<br />If the U.S built more nuclear power plants we’d have more useable energy that doesn’t create pollution.<br />Nuclear power produces very little waste, but it’s very dangerous. It must be contained and buried for many years for the radioactivity to die. (Marshall, 2010)<br />U.S citizens can help by being more energy efficient and helping to pass laws using nuclear energy. <br />
  8. 8. World Statistics on Nuclear Power<br />(%)<br />
  9. 9. Some people see nuclear power as a hazard. In reality it’s not. There are many precautions in place to keep the power plant safe and secure. <br />Also some people are concerned about the waste disposal. The government is using low-level waste for cancer treatment and are currently finding other uses for it. <br />http://www.darvill.clara.net/altenerg/nuclear.htm<br />Opinions on Nuclear Power<br />
  10. 10. Coal VS Nuclear Power<br />(Cost)<br />
  11. 11. Why is There A Problem?<br />tropical-rainforest-animals.com<br />There is a problem because the U.S is relying on fossil fuels. <br />Burning fossil fuels creates CO2 emissions therefore destroying the o-zone layer and causing global warming.<br />
