I, like a lot of people, don’t know much about nuclear energy. I’ve heard arguments for nuclear energy and that’s the only way that will allow for a smooth and reliable transition towards sustainable energy consumption. However, I’ve also heard that nuclear energy isn’t that sustainable and that it is only a little less harmful than gas with lots of issues of its own. Nuclear energy has to be released from an atom, but there are huge amounts of energy. European nations like Lithuania, France, and Slovakia obtain most of their energy from nuclear energy. They also do not pollute the air with greenhouse gases, which many people want to check off their boxes in moving towards a more sustainable future. We have already established that wind and solar will not generate enough electricity for the world, but nuclear energy might get us to a more sustainable future faster.
