False. You have to look no further than Chernobyl or more recently Fukushima, Japan, to understand the potentially fatal consequence of the use of nuclear fuel. Large amounts of radioactive materials can be released into the environment in case of an accident, as in these two cases. Another consequence of the use of nuclear fuel is the radioactive waste produced from nuclear plants. This type of waste has to be handled with care, and it is a danger, therefore, which remains radioactive for thousands of years. Also, the nuclear fuel is not inexhaustible or renewable, and is a limited resource.
