the shortcoming of nuclear power would be waste processing. currently, there isn't a viable process to convert nuclear waste to non-toxic substance. the penetrating nature of radiation requires it to be stored very very deep underground, however there's a possibility that the nuclear waste might contaminate the watershed. nuclear power, despite its potential, is one of those technology that are delivered to the public before they are perfected. Burning Conventional fuel produces alot of sulphur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen. It is a major contribution to acid rain, which nobody has solved the problem. People still live with acid rain and global warming, what more is nuclear contamination? Firstly, the shortcomings of nuclear power is comparable to that of conventional fuel; Secondly, the high fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emmision makes it green; Thirdly, its operational cost is cheaper than conventional fuel power plants, thus making nuclear power more economic. Isn't it conclusive that nuclear power is good?
