And oil fields and refineries and mountaintop removal have lots of this sort of problem. Renewable energy have no fuel and so they do not have air or water or radiation pollution.

Nuclear power has lots of problems: who pays for decommissioning? Nuclear power plants have leaking radioactive water, the risk of catastrophic failure, mining uranium is hardly safe, and we have yet to come up with an answer for the long term storage of spent fuel -- plutonium remains dangerously radioactive for about 100,000 YEARS and it is also extremely poisonous, and of course terrorists would love to get hold of some... So, other than that, no problems at all.
Sincerely, Neil
