Nuclear plants are the most important and biggest sources of energy in developed countries but they are also biggest greenhouse gas emitters.
Online PR News – 18-June-2012 – Toronto,ON – Lloyd Westcord has been conducting an extensive survey for over past five months on various sources of greenhouse gases. Finally now it has come to a conclusion that which source is responsible for maximum gas emission and that is nuclear energy plants. So from next week it is launching a campaign titled “Less Nuclear Energy, Less Greenhouse Gas”.
Nuclear plants are the most important and biggest sources of energy in developed countries but they are also biggest greenhouse gas emitters. The survey of Lloyd Westcord shows that Carbon dioxide and Methane are the major culprits for greenhouse effect and nuclear energy sources produce a boatload of them. Lloyd Westcord also checked Germany’s greenhouse gas reduction project and by using less nuclear energy Germany was able to decrease greenhouse gas by 26.5 percent. In their research Carbon dioxide emissions declined by 2.4 percent, Methane emissions dropped by 3.5 percent, Nitrous oxide emissions rose by 2.3 percent and that’s because of using more chemical fertilizers and Fluoride gases went down slightly by 0.4 percent compared to 2010.
Many countries are working restlessly for reducing greenhouse gases. “As the largest energy consumer in the United States, we have a responsibility to American citizens to reduce our energy use and become more efficient,” said US President Barack Obama. “Our goal is to lower costs, reduce pollution and shift Federal energy expenses away from oil and towards local, clean energy.”
Lloyd Westcord’s research also draws attention to some other major greenhouse gas sources they are heavy-duty vehicles, coal burning industries and reckless deforestation. Lloyd Westcord thinks this campaign will definitely make a stand against rising nuclear energy sources and make renewable energy sources popular.
