Imagine a life without lights, televisions, computers, trains, washing machine, refrigerators and microwaves. Imagine a planet so polluted that smog is in the air so bad that one cannot see very far, lakes and streams are poisoned, and land so badly scarred from people trying to find more energy sources. This may become reality in nearly future as a result of abuse of our energy resources. That reveals that energy is most important in our life, while a planet where we live is important too, a planet which effected by both generate the energy to meet our demands, and our use of energy.
As it can be seen that, there is relationship between generate electricity which is one type of our energy and pollution of environment.

Non-renewable energy resources need to change chemically the sources in order to obtain usable energy, for example by burn them. The obtaining of these resources, shipping them and converting them into usable energy cost high. Also burning them resulted in carbon dioxide CO2 and caused pollution to environment. In addition, non-renewable energy resources caused to reduce the forest, trees and green areas which consider the main source to feed the environment by Oxygen. (Harrison & Hester 2003)
Renewable energy resources which come in variety types have similarity in reducing of carbon footprint, and are much safer to the environment.
Nuclear Power is being promoted as the preeminent substitute for fossil fuel and considered as the future of energy needs. Nuclear is achieved by two processes, fission and fusion of nuclei of atoms. This process releases a huge amount of heat energy, which is then converted into electricity. The major advantages of it are: the fuel used for production is available in abundant and less expensive. The radioactive wastes it produces are very compact and can be recycled. The fuel is compact and easy to transport. Nuclear energy being the most beneficial source of energy, has its own drawbacks, which includes, the waste it produces, the cost of…
