The used fuel or nuclear waste from a single 1000 megawatt nuclear plant that has been operated for 40 years is equal to energy of 130 million barrels of oil or 37 million tons of coal. Can you imagine that?
Used fuel rods can be process to remove the high radioactive fission products and separate the fissionable U-235 and plutonium. Plutonium can be used to make a mixed-oxide fuel (MOX) which is being used in reactors all over Europe. With new developed technology, all of the spent fuel can be made usable. It means no radioactive waste.
With this we can continue to develop nuclear fuel as a source of electricity and there is no limits to what we can achieve. Not to mention, with a cheap and clean source of power we can help to save our planet in the process. What good if we have all the electricity in the world but we don't have a a planet to live on.
In the future, as the world experience shortage in fossil fuel, plutonium will be more valuable as fuel for nuclear reactors than as weapons of mass destruction. Imagine a world where nuclear is only use for power generation.
So we as the future of our generation, must take matters with our own hands. Who are they to deny our rights for clean and cheap energy. It is us who will lead this country. Support nuclear in our country. Help reduce the emission of C02. Save our planet. For the future of our own country. Say yes to nuclear power. Say yes to our future.
