Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 5May 16, The consequences are severe
There are few advantages of nuclear energy when compared to the many disadvantages, like radioactive waste, which have still not been resolved. The waste of nuclear energy is dangerous by environmental standards. Despite so many safety measures, accidents cannot be averted.
Power plants and nuclear waste may be preferred targets for terrorists to destroy a country and population, as well. In a nutshell, the usage of nuclear energy is restricted and the disadvantages, with regards to health hazards, environmental risks and other side effects, can’t be ignored. Recent leakages of power plants in advanced countries like Japan, are also creating negative thoughts regarding the use of this technology.
