Anti-Nuclear Protests In Tokyo And Seoul-Photos

I think that nuclear power is very dangerous.

Nuclear power is very dangerous because if there is an accident at the power plant, it can cause nuclear radiation like what is now happening in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Nuclear radiation is dangerous because the effect can be something like the effect of a nuclear weapon or an atomic bomb.

And if a nuclear power plant exploded, it can be as bad as being hit by an atomic bomb.

Nuclear power plant is an efficient and clean way to produce electricity but it can also become a disaster of mass destruction that can kill and harm lots and lots of people, animals and plants.

It will take a very, very long time to get rid of the nuclear radiation from the atmosphere, soil and the water system.

Go Green 🙂

I think we should use more wind turbine and solar power to produce electricity.

An environmental activist wearing a mask takes part in a rally demanding the government halt the building of more nuclear plants in South Korea, in Seoul March 28, 2011, on the 32nd anniversary of U.S. Three Mile Island nuclear power plant accident in 1979. South Korea, a major global supplier of nuclear plants, will carry on with its nuclear plans despite the crisis at a quake-hit nuclear complex in nearby Japan, a government minister said on Monday. Nuclear power accounts for 31.4 percent of South Korea's electricity generation needs, and the world's fifth-largest oil importer has a target to increase that to 48.5 percent by 2024. It has 7 reactors under construction, with plans to build 6 more and bring to 34 the number on-stream by 2024. REUTERS/Jo Yong-Hak
