Uranium: Is It a Country?

In Europe nuclear energy is more and more often celebrated as saving the climate. Clearly, nuclear power plants need uranium.

The aim is to comprehensively illustrate the opportunities and risks posed by nuclear energy, whilst paying particular attention to uranium mining.

Australia has the world’s largest deposits of this resource. We will travel to the “land down under” to exemplify where uranium comes from, where it goes to and what is leftover from it.

There is plutonium (used mostly together with uranium) and thorium. And by now there is just one thorium nuclear reactor in India. (what concerns nuclear fusion, deuterium and tritium could be use, but this is just hypothetical).

By now the most used combustible for the nuclear energy production is uranium and the world has many problems and risks because of this. This film is about uranium and its use for the nuclear energy production. It doesn’t want to be comprehensive of everything concerning nuclear reactors. And it is a very good film, based on a accurate inquiry about uranium.

  1. Male, female or both?!

  2. Nuclear energy gets a bad rap for being so potentially dangerous, totally deserved but also from lack of education.

  3. For 100% it is element for chemicals.

  4. Jesus Christ. 20 minutes in there is the most awfully edited sequence I have EVER seen in a documentary. Looong shots of cars pulling into driveways, mothers pushing prams, company logos and landscapes. After every sentence the interviewee is interrupted by 16 bars of music set to a montage of local photograph. For no reason. 2 minutes spun out into about 15. Painful.

  5. the answer is
    Thorium

  6. Someone discovered Windows Live movie maker!!!

  7. There is no video!

  8. A typical fearmongering anti-nuclear video with the same perpetually discredited “facts” as every other ostensibly environmentalist tract that came before it. Nothing new at all.

  9. You cannot skip this video, incredibly annoying….
