- First paragraph against my issue
Con point #1: Nuclear energy creates nuclear waste that continues to be dangerous for a long period of time.
Quote from the article: “As the fuel (fissionable uranium, 235U) in the rods of a typical nuclear reactor decays, the concentrations of other dangerous radioisotopes rises (Botkin and Keller 2011). Long-term storage of these radioactive waste products, including isotopes of plutonium, iodine, and strontium, is a main concern with nuclear energy, as is safe operation of nuclear power plants.” (Beckrich 10).

III. Second paragraph against my issue
Con point #2: Nuclear energy creates hazards for workers.
Quote: “The reliance on contractors, subcontractors, and labor-ready workers is widespread and increasing[ 35 (Links to an external site.)] in both the public and the private sectors of the US economy. […] The opportunity to implement and evaluate health and safety performance is spotty, particularly compared with the ability to monitor production performance.” (Gochfeld 1612).
