SCI 362 Week 3 DQ 3
Given that society benefits from nuclear power, how should we distribute the burdens that go along with these benefits, such as nuclear waste? Should nuclear waste storage facilities be located where the energy is generated, or should they be located where the energy is used, even if that means within a large urban center? Should they be located in an area where the risks are lowest, even if the people in that area do not benefit from nuclear energy? Explain. In your explanation, state which of the three types of locations you reside in, and explain how that might influence your opinion.
