A Nuclear Waster Dump for Eternity
While nuclear energy has a small carbon footprint, its waste still produces a puzzling problem for the industry. For the moment, it is treated and held in temporary sites but the plan is to store it 500 metres below the Earth's surface.
Our team from Down to Earth went to the most radioactive waste site in Europe where the spent fuel is waiting to be buried, before visiting the underground tunnels that may be the final resting place for this indestructible toxic trash.

Is Nuclear Energy Good or Bad?

We used to think nuclear power would solve all of our energy problems. What happened? Why do we fear nuclear power and is our fear justified? What is nuclear power and does it still have a place in our energy future? A balanced look at both sides of nuclear energy. One problem of the film, it never discusses what happens to nuclear waste from the reactors.
