Nuclear power is dirty--from cradle to grave. At the beginning of the fuel chain, uranium mining, milling, processing and enrichment cause widespread environmental devastation and produces enormous quantities of radioactive and toxic waste. Nuclear reactor operation results in routine releases of dangerous radioactivity into our air and water, and, as shown at Chernobyl and Fukushima, major reactor accidents can make areas of our planet permanently uninhabitable. The radioactive waste generated by reactors is nearly instantly lethal, and will remain hazardous for millenia. And, to date, there is no scientifically-defensible, publicly-acceptable solution for radioactive waste storage.
