I think that nuclear energy could be a good temporary source of energy, but I don’t think that it could be a viable long term solution. At the moment, nuclear energy is needed if we have any hope of reaching net zero emissions. However, although nuclear energy doesn’t not produce a significant amount of emission, it still produces radioactive waste. If the world begins to rely on nuclear energy, then I think that the waste will definitely cause problems in the long-term. Furthermore, I think that there is also a substantial ethical issue on where nuclear power plants should be built. The disasters in Fukushima and Chernobyl have shown that nuclear plants can be very dangerous, and the people surrounding these plants are at risk. Nuclear energy may become a better option if scientists can better ensure the safety of people living near plants.
