== == Nuclear energy is considered safe by some when compared with some other energy sources.

There are three safety issues with nuclear energy: * Controlling the rate of reaction so that it does not get unmanageable. If the rate of reaction is uncontrolled, the reaction cannot be contained, such as in a 'meltdown,' and the outside environment will be exposed to high levels of radioactivity.

* Managing the exposure to radioactive materials used in the reactor. This is necessary during the extraction, concentration, transport, storage and disposal stages, but is most important at stages after concentration, as the radioactivity levels are higher. Disposal of the waste material is a major issue, as the radioactivity from these materials is high for thousands of years. * Security of the material in some of these concentrated states, as they could be used in nuclear weapons.

Contrary to popular belief, the reactors inside a nuclear power facility are not nuclear bombs, and even if a meltdown does occur, the result will not be anything like the blast destruction capability of warheads. Reactors are built fairly deep underground to allow quite a bit of natural radiation shielding against a disaster. Believe it or not, just about every submarine and aircraft carrier in the US. Navy is powered by a nuclear reactor. Nuclear power was probably put into use before it should have been, and the resulting accident scared many people into thinking it is not safe.

Is electricity a clean source of energy?

The term clean source of energy refers to only primary energy sources as wind or solar energy. Electricity, by definition, is not a primary energy source. It is a secondary energy source that is could be produced by a clean energy source as wind or any renewable primary energy source or produced by fossil energy source as oil, natural gas, or coal.
