Nuclear Energy Advantages Saving Us From Global Warming?

Nuclear energy advantages are oversold. Or are they?

Talk about it!

Governments everywhere are scrambling for global warming solutions. They seem to prefer those that promise business-as-usual, economic growth, AND deliver us from the dire effects of global warming.

Yet, there are contrary approaches too. An entire Danish island running on wind power, solar power taking a large share of energy production and hydrogen energy in Iceland...

Nuclear energy is often held up as one energy that can save us from catastrophic effects of global warming. But where is the evidence?

nuclear energy advantages - can they save you from global warming? Talk about it! Are nuclear energy advantages genuine? But what about the disadvantages? What can we believe about promises for "safe" nuclear energy? And what about renewable energy?

This debate is too often too "hi-tech", polarised, politicised and hi-jacked by vested interests. The impacts of this "debate" will be lived by your children and theirs.

So Alternate Energy Sources For A Flourishing Future thinks it's time to hear from those in the know. Those who have a view, a searching question or a picture that tells a thousand words.

Nuclear energy has awesome power. Perhaps for good. And we know, also for bad. Here you can watch a reminder of its terrible power:

Nuclear Energy Advantages And Global Warming – For Or Against?

So many ways to combat global warming, including with nuclear energy. And so much urgency to flee the big global fry-up. So, what do you know?

Is nuclear energy the "only clean energy source" that can deliver us from global warming? What do you think?

For? Against? Or a middle way?

Governments are scrambling for solutions. Lets see what creative and renewable energies of your thought can contribute to the nuclear debate.
