Does Nuclear Energy have a future?

  • It seems like nuclear energy is considered as one of the most environmentally friendly source of energy as it produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions during the production of electricity as compared to traditional sources like coal power plants. It is also more proficient than other forms of energy.

    Now there is two options for nuclear energy. First, there is nuclear fission which is the process that is used in nuclear reactors to produce high amount of energy using uranium. It is the energy that is stored in the nucleus of an atom. Secondly, there is thorium which is more abundant, safer than mine, no need for enrichment, can't be weaponized, and thorium is fertile and not fissile.

    Despite this there is still a large opposition to nuclear power and a fear of another 3m Island, Fukushima Daiichi, or Chernobyl. So does nuclear power have a future?

    Kinda. If they crack cold fusion were laughing
    I support nuclear power in Australia regardless how many wingers cry, Chernobyl was very old tec,
    Fukushima was old tec by current standards and also Australia is not prone to either earthquakes of a large magnitude or tsunami (ignoring the mild East coast chance) so it's a lot safer to use in out country and bitch as the anti radiation freaks may it's more environmentally friendly, with green technologies in the mix (can not be relied on purely unless every house has mass battery storage ( not enough lithium- waste) I think it's the best option. Now to convince the Gov to stop selling our radioactive materials and instead rent them reclaim blah blah
