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.

@ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...6yrs

Yes, temporarily while we increase investment into cleaner renewable alternatives

@97SNJT6Libertarian from Minnesota commented…2wks

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 but not until a safe solution is found for dealing with the nuclear waste. I am a Nevada resident and I believe that while it may not be ideal, burying it in yucca mountain is for the time being much better than holding it at the plants but the power companies need to compensate the state for the storage and or disposal.

No, we should invest in cleaner alternatives such as wind, hydroelectric, thorium, geothermal, an neuclear fusion

@97ZYHMD from Texas answered…10hrs

Until we as a whole, can grasp the huge implications and rewards of such a gift, we don't deserve it. We are a ignorantly selfish species. Until we master all in perpetuity, one source of energy will always have a debt to be paid. Mark my words, wind and solar will have a debt to pay in the future as well, and it could be a worse debt that we just haven't foreseen. Nuclear debt 'failure' is scary, and it should be, and until we are mature enough to deal with that debt, we don't need to be playing with it. Don't take out a loan you're not willing to pay back if you know what I mean.

Yes, only as long as the citizens being put in danger are notified before hand so they're given time to evacuate.

YES, we have ways to get rid of nuclear waste safely from nuclear fission and we are so close to nuclear fusion.

 @David-Cooper-KY from Kentucky answered…2 days

Yes because the technology is here to eliminate nuclear waste caused by fission and we are so close to nuclear fusion.

We should have been building nuclear power plants exclusively ever since we discovered the ability

@97YXSS5 from Oregon answered…5 days

@97YVVGW from Pennsylvania answered…5 days

No, but we need it to stabilize our economy. Solar and wind power are just not enough to hold.

@97YVND4 from New Jersey answered…5 days

In some cases, nuclear energy is needed to power something and in other cases, it can be used to harm people so yes and no

@97YV6BG from North Carolina answered…5 days

Yes, but only to a limited extent with other energy sources being more prioritized and cases like this only used as a backup energy source

@97YTYWS from New Jersey answered…5 days

@97YRZYZ from Nebraska answered…5 days

No, we need to be using solar, water and the smartest most environmentally wise. We need to use technology discovered by Tesla and accept help from extraterrestrials! Stop blocking our evolution!
