Primary Sources

Crane, Cody. "Nuclear Fallout." Science World 68.2 (2011): 18. Primary Search. Web. 11 Feb.


The article offers information on nuclear energy, including its benefits, its effects on the

environment, and how nuclear accidents happen. Particularly, the section detailing the benefits

and effects on the environment are topics of interest that will most likely be used in this project.

"Energy From The Atom." Monkeyshines On America (1999): 27. Primary Search. Web. 11 Feb.


This source provides information on nuclear energy, produced from the fission or fusion of the

nuclei of atoms and how much energy is produced at a time. This can show how nuclear energy

is reliable since it makes very large quantities of energy.

MacKinnon, Don. "A Secure Energy Future For Ontario Requires More Investment In Nuclear

And Biomass Today." Canadian Geographic (2014): 13. Primary Search. Web. 11 Feb.


The article reports on how developing GHG emission-free base-load nuclear and carbon-neutral

biomass energy can help in achieving Ontario's energy security. This can be generalized for

nuclear energy use around the world. The information pertaining to how the energy source is

reliable, affordable, etc. is very useful.

"Nuclear Power." Energy For The Future (2009): 16. Primary Search. Web. 11 Feb. 2017.
The article states that nuclear energy is a clean energy source made using substances such as

uranium that doesn't give off carbon dioxide or other harmful gases. However, nuclear power

stations are expensive to build and run, and they also produce dangerous wastes that can make

living things sick or even kill them. It really is very helpful in explaining the environmental


"Nuclear Waste." Monkeyshines On America (1999): 13. Primary Search. Web. 11 Feb. 2017.

This source discusses the two ways that the energy from nuclear fission is released. It, also, goes

into deep detail on how nuclear waste can affect an ordinary humans body.
