Question:What are the advantages of nuclear power?

By far the main advantage of nuclear power is that it is does not release greenhouse gases, and so does not create any risk of Climate change.

Secondly if everything works properly there is no pollution released into the atmosphere while the plant is running, reducing acid rain and other environmental problems.

Both of these ignore the effects of building the nuclear power plant in the first place, which produced plenty of pollution all by itself.
