I live near a reactor, and I can honestly say, I like them. I'd rather have one of these lending their semi-creepy vibe to the view out my window than have a coal plant smogging it up, using fuel dug out of the mountains I grew up on. True, there have been some disasters over their decades of use, but it's still a new technology, and we're getting smarter about it. After Fukushima, the major power authority in my area began overhauling all of their nuclear plants and hydroelectric dams. We still have monthly tests of the region-wide emergency sirens, and they still send out free calenders to every home in the area, with detailed maps of escape routes should something go wrong. Sure, we still need to figure out what to do with the leftovers, but hey, coal (even 'clean' coal) just spews it's toxic leftovers into the air.

I love this picture, and the idea that's implied is very strong, but please, everyone, do your research before you fear something like this. Of course new technologies, even those decades old, deserve a little bit of caution, but not outright fear and hatred. Look into your local power providers, and you may find that you're seeing this picture on a computer powered by nuclear energy.

I think it's sad that we still use controlled explosions to make energy.

It's not a controlled explosion. The fuel rods generate tremendous heat as they decay, and that heat is used to make steam, which is used to spin generators. Same as coal, but cleaner.

I was mainly referring to coal plants and gas-run automobiles, but even in nuclear energy you still have highly radioactive spent fuel rods, which cannot be safely disposed of. Then there's the risk you take of something going wrong in the power plant and you have something like chernobyl or Fukushima happen again. In one way or another, a large amount of this unnatural radiation will make it's way into nature causing all sorts of problems.

The spent radioactive fuel rods can be safely disposed of, but at the moment we lack the funding & location for long term storage (minor local populations continually get in the way).

Yes, the smoke you see is water vapor. The water is used to cool down the nuclear reactors, then the steam it creates is thrown out by the chimneys :)

No, the vapor is not used to cool the reactors down. It is used to run the turbines which produce electricity.
The water which cools the reactors down is kept in a sealed pool, without any contact with the outside, to keep the nuclear radiations in.
