Nuclear power is generated by using uranium, which is metal mined in various parts of the world. The first large scale nuclear power station was opened at Calder Hall in Cumbria, England, in 1956.

Some military ships and submarines have nuclear power plant for engines. Nuclear power produces around 11% of the world’s energy needed, and produces huge amounts of energy. It causes no pollution as you’d get when burning fossil fuel.

The advantages of nuclear are as follows:

1. It costs about the same as coal, so it’s not expensive to make

2. It doesn’t produce smoke or carbon dioxide, so it doesn’t contribute to the greenhouse effect.

3. It produces huge amounts of energy from small amount of uranium.

4. It produces small amounts of waste.

5. It is reliable.

On the other hand, nuclear power is very, very dangerous. It must be sealed up and buried for many years to allow the radioactivity to die away. Furthermore, although it is reliable, a lot of money has to be spent on safety because if it does go wrong, a nuclear accident can be a major disaster.

People are increasingly concerned about this. In the 1990’s nuclear power was the fastest growing source of power in many parts of the world. In 2005, it was the 2nd slowest growing.(Sumber: UNAS 2008)
