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.

    Ok then
    …

  2. Nathan T says:

    Are you going to explain some of the other types of reactor?

  3. Celestial Runner says:

    I wonder if anti nuclear hippies ever think of the 2 million people that
    die each year from pollution caused by burning coal. Compared with that
    nuclear becomes very safe.

  4. alex Popescu says:

    Given the right type of nuclear energy, a thorium nuclear reactor for
    example, it could easily be the energy of the future. Thorium reactors
    provide less nuclear waste, a safe plant design, and a sustainable source
    of energy that yields far more energy per meter than any fossil fuel or
    renewable energy source. I highly suggest that you research it for
    yourself. 

  5. Bourgond Aries says:

    iirc burning coal actually spreads more radioactive elements into the
    atmosphere than nuclear reactors do due to natural carbon-14 content in
    coal.

    Now a days whole world need neuclear energy

  7. Nat Golder says:

    Amazing new vid guys!

    Fuck you! I ain’t subscribing!

    Finally a new videoo!!! I was waiting for it 🙂 🙂 🙂 See you next week!

  10. cortster12 says:

    There are a lot of youtuber’s promoting audio books… I like reading, not
    listening to someone read me a bedtime story. Oh well.

  11. MrBTTF says:

    Explain thermonuclear reactions and energy!

  12. Sonu Nampalli says:

    Pro Nuclear! It is expensive but it is worth it to protect our planet! 

  13. momobabo CAMPEUR says:

    sous titre français svp

  14. Cactus Smoke says:

    And not one single mention of thorium reactors. You know Thorium, the most
    abundant and safest nuclear fuel on earth. You know its that thing they
    keep out of your test books in science class because we have to have
    nuclear waste for building bombs. And unfortunately thorium doesn’t produce
    that kind of waste…

  15. Commenting Otaku says:

    Nuclear power is highly unstable if managed inproperly. It could explode
    anytime, and creates polution, however if managed properly the pros would
    override the cons.

  16. Παναγιώτης Νηγιάννης says:

    1:40 most obvious secret ever

  17. Olexi Pasyuk says:

    A lot of people still don’t know what exactly nuclear energy is. This video
    can be a starting point.

  18. Scott G says:

    Liked this video. Would like to hear more about the talking points for the
    clean energy debates. Hydrocarbon’s vs Spent nuclear fuel waste. Unbiased
    look at the two.

  19. Aliearia Starr says:

    GREAT vid. Thank u for sharing in an understandable way.

  20. Alltime Conspiracies says:

    Incredibly well explained. Good job!
