RE: Why countries gamble on nuclear energy to combat climate change?

in StemSocial2 months ago (edited)

Just echoing other comments, Nuclear done right in a safe way is a good alternative to burning fossil fuels until renewables/fusion can step up to meet totals demand. As technology, risk management practices and risk culture develop the likelihood of serious accidents will (and has) dramatically reduce.

But lets not forget Uranium is not in limitless supply either, so more work on a solution for the next 1000 years is probably needed.

I do agree. Nuclear has too much risk but proper safety mitigation can lead to efficient energy generation while waiting for renewable technology to mature. Thank you for your insight.
