The figures quoted below are derived from the latest available statistics from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the global cooperation body for nuclear power producers. According to World Nuclear News, 13-14% of the World's energy was produced by nuclear plants during 2009, continuing the slight downward trend on production of nuclear power (as % of total energy production).

Global Issues
Nuclear Energy

The latest figures from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) tells us that around 13-14% of the World's energy was produced by nuclear plants during 2009, continuing the slight downward trend on production of nuclear power (as a % of total energy production). In total 28 nations produce nuclear energy, and 16 have plants under construction

Depleted Uranium (DU)

Depleted Uranium is a by-product which is produced when we make fuel for nuclear power reactors, and also when we make nuclear bombs. There is no safe way to dispose of this waste product, so we generally store it underwater or underground in containers. Western forces have also dropped a whole lot of DU over Iraq, Afghanistan and the Balkans

Pollution

We still do not have a clear picture as to how badly we have already polluted the World. With a growing awareness of corporations being much more interested in profit, than in our environment or health, we must get an overall picture, and we must also find a 100% safe way of storing our most harmful types of waste

Nuclear Weapons

There are currently nine nations which hold operational nuclear warheads (United States, Russia, France, China, United Kingdom, Israel, Pakistan, India, North Korea), and the United States also loans them out to Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Turkey, through a NATO-approved 'Nuclear Sharing' scheme
