Nuclear power is seen as a safe energy source

Concern for the environment and sustainability has become an increasingly present agenda in several countries. Countries that have even committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and finding alternative and clean ways of generating energy.

Among the options available, nuclear power has been increasingly well-viewed and, very different from what most people believe, it can be quite safe. This is because this energy is produced from the heat and radiation available in the Earth's core. Unlike other forms of energy, this radiation can even be used for more than one application, such as in industry and medicine.

In addition, with the development of technology, new reactors, increasingly safe, have been developed to start operating soon. There are also new and diverse protocols with safety measures to prevent major accidents from happening, as has been the case with the Fukushima Plant in Japan.
