Very short document with some very good answers to general questions about nuclear.

For example:

Don’t nuclear power plants spew out a lot of radiation?
Nuclear plants emit almost no radiation. Ironically, coal-fired power plants emit about three times as much radiation as nuclear power plants due to naturally occurring radiation from the ground. Radiation exposure from a nuclear power plant is about 1/300 the natural background level of radiation.

Great read KimChin. One of the problems is that it should be read by people who do not understand these issues, instead of us reading here and thinking, yeah, we know that... :cry:

You guys are unbelievable! You will not lend credence to anything that doesn't line up with your beliefs, but will blindly believe anything that does!
