No, we should invest in cleaner alternatives such as wind, hydroelectric, thorium, and geothermal

we should invest in cleaner alternatives

Nuclear energy is clean, for the most part. Storage technology is incredibly advanced, so it would not be harming the environment, especially since the only biproduct being released is steam, other than the safely stored depleted uranium. Nuclear energy is a great way to transition into those cleaner alternatives, because they are not yet efficient enough to sustain the vast amounts of energy required to power most modern societies.

Thorium is nuclear. Thorium is just a different fuel and chemical/atomic reaction process.

Yes, temporarily while we increase investment into cleaner renewable alternatives

Nuclear energy is extremely clean, especially the thorium type. I find wind turbines and solar panels unreliable and inefficient, though clean, I feel they aren't worthwhile investments. Instead, nuclear power is extremely efficient and reliable.

Yes, as long as we devote more time and money towards making cleaner energy sources in the near future.

It's not like I support it or not but I think as long as it don't effects me or my family I don't really care

@98937LZ from Alabama answered…16hrs

As long as it's a safe distance from homes and won't be a danger to the people.

but only when it is out of control and certain to cause a nuclear meltdown

@988ZTYP from New York answered…17hrs

I mean yeah but the reason why I don’t think really like it because of something goes wrong we all go kaboom

I believe we shouldn't use nuclear energy because of the risks, a good point to bring up was the Chernobyl meltdown. Although the meltdown was caused by an issue with the workers as stated they were "inadequate" and there were flaws within the system as well. You can't have room for that in such a place as it's gonna lead to disaster, which proves my point too, that and we should find other substitutes if possible.

No, we should invest in cleaner alternatives such as wind, hydroelectric, thorium, geothermal and more. Using nuclear energy can impact the environment and human health.

Yes, along with gas, wind, hydroelectric, thorium, and geothermal, with no public subsidy or climate change agenda at all.

A 1000 MwH nuclear plat takes on average 6 years to construct with a budget of 6 billion dollars, they take 10 years to break even off of the debt then remain profitable and effective for 30 years until their license expires and needs to be renewed to modernize the equipment. Nuclear is the most fuel efficient renewable and should be used as the majority base load energy source for all nations.

it has the potential to be really useful, but needs more research to be used safely. We should be investing in its research
