Nuclear Energy FAQ - Argonne

Post by KimChin » Mon Nov 20, 2017 3:02 pm

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.
