...Nuclear Pollution and its Effects on the Environment Introduction Japan is one of the countries that have experienced the adverse effects of nuclear energy since the 1950s. More specifically, Japan suffered immensely from the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki after the completion of the Second World War In the years that followed, Japan experienced the lucky dragon incident in 1954. The experiences registered numerous adverse effects and extreme cases of environmental pollution. One would have thought that Japan would be the last country to invest in nuclear power based on its experience with nuclear bombings. However, Japan exhibited a bold move by accepting to undertake...

Hence, nations will invest more into maintenance, deployment, testing, research, and development of nuclear weapons and leave other sectors of the economy, which include the key sectors of education and health underfunded. In addition, the cost of intelligence associated with nuclear power is enormous.

Air pollution occurs as a result of emission of hydrocarbons, oxides of carbon, oxides of nitrogen, sulfur dioxides, particulates and nuclear waste in the air. The bulk of these air pollutants emanates from automobiles, burning of fossil fuels, nuclear and industrial activities (Hill, 2010).
