Do we need nuclear power for sustainable energy production?
There is a risk of terrorist attacks on nuclear power plants. This is dangerous.
Although naturally improbable,
terrorist attacks do present a real threat.
Terrorists can use advanced hacking tools to get access to the power plant.

A terrorist attack on a population center would be more effective than a successful attack on a NPP.
Nuclear facilities have been attacked by anti-nuclear activists and suffered no harm.
