For this weeks news article I found this article and it is about a landfill fire that is close to a nuclear waste storage site. I think this is an example of poor waste management and planning. I also think people in todays society are really scared of nuclear energy because nuclear has a bad meaning. Yes it can be dangerous but it is the key to our future. Used correctly nuclear energy can be very useful and clean buy reducing our carbon footprint. Also a portion of our naval ships run on nuclear power and they are working great. My dad was on a nuclear submarine and he was a nuclear machinist mate and knows how it works. This just a huge steam powered generator that produces electricity.
