5 True/False questions
Radiation waste → Materials from a nuclear reaction that emit radiation; contact with such particles may be harmful or lethal to people; therefore, the Materials must be safely stored for thousands of years
Fission → Addition of more waste than a resource can accommodate
Greenhouse Effect → Anticipated increase in Earth's temperature caused by carbon dioxide (emitted by burning fossil fuels) trapping some of the radiation emitted by the surface.
Nonferrous → Metals, including iron, that are utilized in the production of iron and steel
Photochemical smog → Solar energy cells, usually made from silicon, that collect solar rays to generate electricity.
