I’m working on a science question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Turkey Point is a nuclear power plant in Homestead Florida and recently asked the Nuclear Regulatory Commission permission to build two more reactors.
Although the utility has not made a final decision on whether they plan to go through with construction, discuss the following.
What are some advantages and disadvantages associated with nuclear energy?
List some concerns given by groups opposed to the building of these new reactors and cite some responses to those concerns.
If you had the authority to give a final decision on whether to build the new reactors, would or wouldn’t you? Give reasons for either decision.
