Worldwide there have been 99 accidents at nuclear power plants (as of 2015). Fifty-seven accidents have occurred since the Chernobyl disaster, and 57% (56 out of 99) of all nuclear-related accidents have occurred in the USA. Serious nuclear power plant accidents include the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster (2011), Chernobyl disaster (1986), Three Mile Island accident (1979), and the SL-1 accident (1961).

Nuclear-powered submarine core meltdown and other mishaps include the K-19 (1961), K-11 (1965), K-27 (1968), K-140 (1968), K-429 (1970), K-222 (1980), K-314 (1985), and K-431 (1985).[8][9][10] Serious radiation accidents include the Kyshtym disaster, Windscale fire, radiotherapy accident in Costa Rica, radiotherapy accident in Zaragoza, radiation accident in Morocco, Goiania accident, radiation accident in Mexico City, radiotherapy unit accident in Thailand, and the Mayapuri radiological accident in India.

The IAEA maintains a website reporting recent accidents.

The proverbial 'poison pill' in the nuclear fuel cycle is radioactive waste.

Spent nuclear fuel is the radioactive by-product of electricity generation at commercial nuclear power plants, and high-level radioactive waste is the by-product from reprocessing spent fuel to produce fissile material for US (and other nation's) nuclear weapons.

Multiple issues and serious environmental problems involved with the production of nuclear power and weapons have been a long-standing concern of the environmental and anti-nuclear movement, e.g.,

Green parties internationally have had prominent platform opposition to nuclear-related risks, including power generation, weapons production and intractable problems with radioactive disposal and production.

The European Green parties during the Cold War led political opposition to forward-based atomic weapons and as the global Green party movement has grown to Green parties in approximately 100 countries, so have Green platforms taken detailed positions in opposition to the environmental/human/planetary risks of nuclear weapons and potential destruction and consequences of nuclear weapons use.
