In approximately 450BC a Grecian philosopher, Democritus, coined the term átomos meaning 'indivisible'. We now know, of course, that atoms are not indivisible, and that the fission of electrons produced during radioactive decay can be used indirectly to

I read an article recently about a nuclear plant in a region where the seawater required for cooling the rods had risen in temperature to where it could no longer perform that function efficiently--it may been only for a short period but if all the seas warm, this will make nuclear energy impossible to utilize in areas affected by ocean warming.
