Are there any emissions from the production of nuclear energy?

    Nuclear power plants do not emit toxins or greenhouse gases. However, some processes used to build and fuel the plant do let off greenhouse gases, such as those let off while mining for fuel or transporting the fuel to and from the nuclear power plant. Nuclear power plants of course also produce radioactive waste, so that needs to be taken into account, as well as the possibility of a nuclear power plant malfunctioning and venting radiation into the air, although that is extremely unlikely and there are plenty of safeguards to prevent it from happening.
