Suggest any two reasons which make the large scale usage of nuclear energy prohibitive.

Large scale nuclear energy is prohibitive because:

(a) The waste material produced by the fission at the nuclear power plants are radioactive and hence are very harmful to all the living beings. It is difficult to dispose off the nuclear waste safely.

(b) The installation cost of nuclear power plant is also very high and the limited availability of uranium fuel makes the large scale use of nuclear energy prohibitive.
