How can you help make nuclear power?
The average man cannot "help" make nuclear power. Once the plant
is online, there is a crew hired by the owner of the plant to run
it. I guess you could apply for any job openings at your nearest

Why do you need nuclear power?
You don't need nuclear power, energy can be generated using other methods, fossil fuels, hydro-electric etc. However nuclear power does reduce a countries reliance on fossil fuel, which can be particularly important for countries with few fossil fuel reserves of their own. Nuclear power stations do not release CO2 into the atmosphere so do not directly contribute to global warming. Many countries are looking at an investment in nuclear power to help meet CO2 emissions targets. Nuclear power stations are also required to make plutonium for nuclear weapons. Plutonium does not occur naturally and can only be made from uranium in nuclear reactors. Any country with a nuclear weapons program will have a civilian nuclear power industry for this reason.
