In nuclear power, the principle of nuclear fission is used on the one hand as a weapon (atomic bomb) and on the other hand for energy generation. Nuclear power was originally touted as a particularly clean technology in terms of energy generation, since it does not produce comparable emissions such as coal-fired power plants. However, the problem of disposing of the radioactive waste is ignored. In addition, the danger of meltdown was underestimated for a long time. The Chernobyl disaster in 1986 made it clear for the first time that the far-reaching consequences of a reactor accident are threatening. The region around the former reactor is still uninhabitable today. After the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan (2011), the German government finally decided to phase out nuclear power in view of the risk. However, the problem of storing radioactive waste has not yet been resolved. (fp)
