Abstract

These days, climate change and its consequences regularly make the news. Sea levels are rising, poles are defrosting, species are becoming extinct, the ozone layer is being destroyed and the earth's temperature is increasing. These symptoms convey a clear call to action: the preservation of the environment needs to be of the highest concern. In parallel, the world's population grows larger and energy consumption grows with it. With these worries in mind, more attention is put on how to be more earth-minded and environment friendly. Often, this attention has a common theme: the need for renewable energies. Large investments have been made towards the development of renewable sources of energy such as solar and wind power. However, the energy demand is so high that an extra source of power is needed, for which nuclear power is a candidate.
