    One of the major obvious problems is that should there be some kind of operating error there is potential for major human and environmental damage. Take for instance the case of Chernobyl where a whole town and area were contaminated to the point the people still aren’t allowed to go back there. Or if there is a nuclear meltdown or an earthquake, like the one this year in Japan, can cause the destruction of a nuclear plant.  Reactors also emit radiation which can be dangerous when exposed to it for a long period of time.
