BLS Environmental Science
Nuclear Risks
• Evaluate the risks of nuclear power. Are we
overly concerned or not concerned enough
about nuclear accidents? Could an accident
like Chernobyl happen in the United States?
NIMBY
• Would you rather live next door to a coalburning plant or a nuclear power plant?
Defend your choice.
Climate Change
• Global climate change has been cited by
nuclear power proponents as one of the most
important justifications for further
development of the nuclear power option.
Give reasons for their belief, and then site
some reasons that would counter their
argument.
