  • Nuclear Energy Explained: How does it work?
    Nuclear Energy is a controversial subject. The pro- and anti-nuclear lobbies fight furiously, and it's difficult to decide who is right. So we're trying to clear up the issue - in this video we discuss how we got to where we are today, as the basis for discussion. Next week we'll be looking at the arguments for and against nuclear power in detail.

    Nuclear power is domestic terrorism from the elites. There's no place for the spent fuel so it gets thrown in the oceans for about 48 years, roughly 1 million m^3 of waste barrels and old reactors. Then the population experiences health problems which the pharmaceutical companies profit from. The power plants blow up and millions are lives are lost but nothing is heard in the media because we all know how nuclear is too cheap to meter and carbon free. Then we dump it in the ground because the ground is so much safer. In the end everyone dies of the lies the industry keeps telling. You won't hear about it in the news. We have this show COPs where people with mullets get arrested for minuscule things like drugs but we allow terrorist control to nuclear industry which should of never existed in the first place if you can't do anything with the fuel. People worried about being attacked by aliens are crazy.

  • tvk-9cop
    tvk-9cop 28 days ago

    I think nuclear energy should make a come back. The nuclear industry does not deserve a black eye.
    1st: Three mile island was part of the new atomic age (1979) so everyone didn’t 100% understand how it worked or what could go wrong. It’s 2019 so we have better technology to understand the nuclear industry so now something
    as small as a stuck P.O.V valve can be detected.
    2nd: Chernobyl was caused by complete ignorance and by the lack of guidelines. The operators pushed the reactor past its limits and they also cut off the reactors shutdown systems. If the NRC stepped in and set certain guidelines for everyone that would’ve of happened so I’ll give the nuclear haters that one.
    3rd: Fukushima was unpreventable. The nuclear plant like everyone else had no awareness of a incoming earthquake. After the earth quake hit they followed procedures like normal by shutting down the plant. Keep in mind they were doing this with back up generators. They were most of the way shut down when the tsunami hit. The tsunami flooded the diesel generators and then all power was lost. At that point their was nothing that anyone could really do. All this was due to Mother Nature.

    • Claire Rostron
      Claire Rostron 28 days ago

      Fukushima was preventable with better planning. More resources should have been put into tsunami defences and the backup generators could have been located elsewhere. To suggest that it's *_entirely_* up to nature whether or not our nuclear plants explode is erroneous.

    why and how is neutron bombarded into nueclues as neutron are chargeless and cant break up the nucleus

    • Дмитрий Прищепа
      Дмитрий Прищепа 27 days ago +1

      +SAVAGE TUBER the real story here is that when a neutron collides with a nucleus, it forms another isotope of that element, which is likely to be unstable and break. For U-235 it forms U-236 which splits into Krypton and Barium and a few neutrons. It's possible with any neutron in that case, because neutron binding energy is higher than fission barrier(that neutron is even).

    We have had 3 nuclear accident. Them all the outcome was pretty minor, relativily speaking. We have learned from the accidents and just based on how not so severe the outcome was and that we learned from it the danger of nuclear reactors are way lower then people think.

    • BoHjalmarGames
      BoHjalmarGames 22 hours ago

      Not a single modern reactor in a safe environment has had an accident. We can't compare low budget reactors with shitty designs from the 80's and reactors placed in places where tsunamis aren't that unusual to the standard reactor. Three accidents, over 450 plants, all accidents could have been stopped easily.

    Personally, I’ve had a huge fear of anything deemed “nuclear”. It just seems so... unnatural, at least on earth. I’ve been working on researching it, and so far it’s actually been helping me overcome that fear a bit, or at least seeing it in a different light.

      +Claire Rostron in 60 years all the nuclear waste ever generated would fill a single football field roughly a meter deep. That's 60 years of meeting 20% of our energy needs. And as you said it's a solid that we can stick in a box and bury. Done.
      It's essentially a non issue.

    • Claire Rostron
      Claire Rostron 28 days ago +2

      "Natural" is ultimately a meaningless term. We're generating electricity for a national grid.
      If we're speaking minimal impact on the environment, the waste from nuclear power production is far more containable than the gasses being released into the atmosphere en-masse by fossil fuels. Meanwhile, solar and wind power just isn't cost and size efficient enough to power a sizeable country alone.

    • H3Vtux
      H3Vtux Month ago +1

      The nuclear fear was spurred by a bunch of hollywood celebrities in the 80s who had absolutely no clue what they were talking about at any level. The false paranoia spread regarding this energy source was the single worse thing to happen to the environment. If we had kept pushing Nuclear research and construction through the past 40 years we would be using hardly any coal or gas and the earth would be SO much better off.
      People need to stop listening to these fucking actors and celebrities, they're celebrities because they weren't good at anything useful.

    I like to show a video such as this and then provide a transcript to go along with questions to assist students. It is a simple and effective accommodation. Here is a corrected and usable transcript:


    Have you ever been in an argument about nuclear power? We have, and we found it frustrating and
    confusing, so let's try and get to grips with this topic.

    It all started in the 1940s. After the shock and horror of
    the war and the use of the atomic bomb, nuclear energy promised to be a
    peaceful spin-off of the new technology, helping the world get back on its feet.
    Everyone's imagination was running wild. Would electricity become free? Could nuclear
    power helped settle the Antarctic? Would there be nuclear powered cars, planes,
    or houses? It seemed that this was just a few years of hard work away. One
    thing was certain: the future was atomic.

    Just a few years later there was a sort of Atomic Age hangover;
    as it turned out, nuclear power was very complicated and very expensive. Turning
    physics into engineering was easy on paper but hard in real life. Also, private
    companies thought that nuclear power was much too risky as an investment; most
    of them would much rather stick with gas, coal, and oil. But there were many
    people who didn't just want to abandon the promise of the Atomic Age; an exciting
    new technology, the prospect of enormously cheap electricity, the prospect of
    being independent of oil and gas imports, and, in some cases, a secret desire
    to possess atomic weapons provided a strong motivation to keep going.

    Nuclear power’s finest hour finally came in the early 1970s,
    when war in the Middle East caused oil prices to skyrocket worldwide. Now,
    commercial interest and investment picked up at a dazzling pace. More than half
    of all the nuclear reactors in the world were built between 1970 and 1985. But
    which type of reactor to build, given how many different types there were to
    choose from? A surprising underdog candidate won the day: the light water
    reactor. It wasn't very innovative and it wasn't too popular of scientists, but
    it had some decisive advantages: it was there, it worked, and it wasn't terribly

    So, what does a light water reactor do? Well the basic principle
    is shockingly simple: it heats up water using an artificial chain reaction. Nuclear
    fission releases several million times more energy than any chemical reaction could.
    Really heavy elements on the brink of stability, like uranium-235, get
    bombarded with neutrons. The neutron is absorbed, but the result is unstable. Most
    of the time, it immediately spits into fast-moving lighter elements, some
    additional free neutrons, and energy in the form of radiation. The radiation heats
    the surrounding water, while the neutrons repeat the process with other atoms, releasing
    more neutrons and radiation in a closely controlled chain reaction. Very different
    from the first destructive runaway reaction in an atomic bomb.

    In our light water reactor, a moderator is needed to control
    the neutrons energy. Simple, ordinary water does the job, which is very
    practical, since waters used to drive the turbines anyway. The light water
    reactor became prevalent because it's simple and cheap. However, it's neither
    the safest, most efficient, nor technically elegant nuclear reactor.

    The renewed nuclear hype lasted barely a decade though. In
    1979, the Three Mile Island nuclear plant in Pennsylvania barely escaped a catastrophe
    when its core melted. In 1986, the Chernobyl catastrophe directly threatened
    Central Europe with a radioactive cloud, and in 2011 the drawn-out Fukushima
    disaster sparked new discussions and concerns.

    While, in the 1980s, 218 new nuclear power reactors went
    live, their number and nuclear’s global share of electricity production has
    stagnated since the end of the 80s. So, what's the situation today? Today, nuclear
    energy meets around 10% of the world's energy demand. There are about 439
    nuclear reactors in 31 countries. About 70 new reactors are under construction in
    2015, most of them in countries which are growing quickly. All in all, 160 new reactors
    are planned worldwide. Most nuclear reactors were built more than 25 years ago
    with pretty old technology. More than 80% are various types of light water
    reactor. Today, many countries are faced with a choice: the expensive
    replacement of the aging reactors, possibly with more efficient, but less
    tested models, or a move away from nuclear power towards newer or older
    technology with different cost and environmental impacts. So, should we use
    nuclear energy?

      Chernobyl and the other nuclear disasters were caused by technicians and managment not following safety protocols. Chernobyl used an inherently unsafe reactor design.

      Nuclear power is actually pretty safe as long as safety precautions are taken. It is the cleanest and most efficient form of power.

      +Redtooth 75 Modern scientists have said the fact that a plant is unsafe as Chernobly lasted as long as it did is an amazing testament to the soviet scientists and engineers involved in its construction and operation. The scientists warned the russian government that the blueprints for such a cheap building weren't safe but were forced to do it anyways.
      Meanwhile people are already moving back to fukushima. The amounts of radiation remaining in the major parts of the city are so small you get a larger dose from a 5 hour plane trip.

    If we denied ourselves the use of fire for fear of being burned then we would have never made it past the stone age.

    Why Use the Light water reactor? If Geotermal is available? Make use of Active volcanoes Since they don't run out of thermal energy so fast

      Some places dont have a lot of geothermal activity. You would have to dig very far before you could use it. Other places like greenland have a lot of geothermal activity. That is why greenland makes extensive use of geothermal energy.

      Because it's a lot more expensive to utilise geothermal energy in most places.

      There are facilities that can store it. They dont make a lot of waste. The worlds nuclear waste could be fit inside a small house. Then you just put a shit ton of concrete around it to shield the radiation.

      Nuclear weapons maybe, nuclear power no. There are species that would survive a nuclear war and nuclear winter and fallout so not all life would be ended.
