Do we need nuclear energy to stop climate change? More and more voices from science, environmental activists and the press have been saying so in recent years - but this comes as a shock to those who are fighting against nuclear energy and the problems that come with it. So who is right? Well - it is complicated.

  • Renewables will NEVER be the future of electricity because the components in Wind turbines and Solar panels only last several years before they become TOXIC WAIST. The biggest solar power plant in the world will become a WASTELAND soon. Not to mention the destruction of countless environments caused by building wind/solar plants.

  • "Stop climate change" is a fallacy in itself. Cap all volcanoes, destroy the grass eating quadruped animals, stop exhaling and sacrifice yourself to trees and plankton. Oh, and tell the sun to stop.

    • I have a feeling you don't understand what that phrase means. Anyways, most people when they refer to "stop climate" change they most certainly talking for the humans part of it. Or maybe you decided it would be nice to take it literally and possibly out off context to write this comment and appear smart.

  • after my parents almost froze to death in texas this year, i dont really want to hear a word about wind and solar power. I want nuclear, ample amounts of energy- like the modern world uses. Its green, its renewable- and if regulations make it too expensive than stfu and change it if you care about the earth or energy.

  • 3:42 Yeah, that sounds all well and good but since Ringhals 1 and 2 was shut down in December 2020 and 2019 respectively we had to import electricity generated by fossil fuel and fire up the auxiliary generators that run on diesel to you know, meet demand due to it being winter. So that power plant runs at most at half the capacity now.

  • To combat climate change, the worldmust rapidly reduce its dependency on fossil fuels to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Nuclear energy is low-carbon and can be deployed on a large scale in the time frame required, supplying the world with clean and affordable electricity.

  • It's vital to invest in nuclear power. It works and it is extremely safe with modern reactors. Remember, RBMK was cheap, big and old; and it had almost nothing in common with modern PWRs. I repeat, nuclear is SAFE.

  • Thank you for the video! I just think a fact check is required to see if building a nuclear plant in South Korea is actually quicker and competitively priced. As far as I know, the country is one of the countries which civil complaints are so harsh that it has been quite hard to build the nuclear plant these days.

  • Solar and wind are really bad for the environment in the sense that wind kills tons of bats and birds just by doing what they do. If you didnt know, bats are incredibly important for fruiting plants to pollinate (and other plants). Solar (depending where you get them but most use the cheap solar bc cheap) have very toxic chemicals that can seriously damage things like the water table and general soil health if they are damaged and leak those chemicals. I dont even need to explain why that is bad. Nuclear is becoming and has been the best and we should be using it. Its just better. But yeah its very hard to transition and it needs to be slow.

  • Yup electricity is like magic :D it is the type of energy that humanity has the most capability to manipulate it . Everything should be electrified but profit making is a great hindrance for it ; many petroleum or coal companies would not like to transition into nuclear or renewable energy due to profit margins. By current trend either the fossil fuels run out or global warming becomes too dangerous ; then humanity will shift towards it. We humans are really the most intelligent+foolish species on earth.

    • @Anon Surfer Ah okay, so Thermical recycling turns the heat produced by burning it into electricity, its not very effiecient way to produce energy, but its better than just burning it. There are even methods to fully recycle plastics so that they are reusable today, but they are too expensive so they dont get used

  • Only opinion I have is this. JUST DO IT! Renewable energy and nuclear energy cannot do the jobs alone. And while it's true nuclear energy is responsible for nightmares from the past, that's only because the nuclear energy was weaponized. If it was instead used to push fossil fuels out of the picture we'd already see a vast change in our climates. The truth is this, we best take action, and we best do it soon. Because climate change is not a good thing, and can lead to global extinction. Our governments and our society need to be persuaded that nuclear and renewable energy sources are the future, and it does not matter if they like it or not. Fossil fuels are doing nothing but harming the planet. And we risk the wrath of mother nature the longer we use it.

  • * God's grace * Did you know that God loves you so much that he sent Jesus to save us? Jesus is the son of God! And he loves you very much! To have proof of this, we can say that he emptied himself of all his glory and stepped on the earth! Isn't that wonderful? And there's more! He assured us of salvation! He fulfilled the mission that God gave him! Which is to have a death on the cross for all people in the world! * How do I get to heaven? * It's very simple! -Accept Jesus as your Lord and only Savior! - Repent of your sins daily even those you don't know because you sinned out of ignorance! -Recognize that you do not deserve God's salvation but even with your faults He wanted to save you with his great love and grace! Now about keeping your faith -Read the Bible daily -Pray and fast -Go to a church that follows the word of God May God bless you greatly! 👋
