Uranium might seem like it is all bad but there are some good sides to it, too. For instance, the only mining required to get it is for the uranium. It also creates unimangible amounts of energy when compared to other forms of energy like coal and oil. The main thing that we have to look for is managing it safely to make sure it does not get into our water supply. Another bonus is that uranium used to make nuclear energy is not the same type that is used to make nuclear weapons. So if a terrorist gets their hands on it they cannot use it for a weapon thus making it safe in that aspect as well .
