Is Expanding Nuclear Energy Production Necessary to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions?

  • Yes, nuclear energy is one of the cleanist forms of energy.

    Unless wind, solar or geothermal power really take off as an alternative form of energy, then nuclear energy will emerge as part of the solution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Nuclear energy literally produces zero carbon emissions and would be inexpensive to produce -- except for the huge costs imposed by regulations and cost of insurance. But technically, nuclear energy is safer than ever and can cover much of our energy needs. Some countries have adopted this. It all ready covers 90% of France's energy needs, for example.

  • A Step In The Right Direction

    I do believe expanding the nuclear energy program is needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We emit a lot of greenhouse gases by burning coal to fuel our electricity. I think nuclear energy has proved to be a viable and cleaner substitute. I would like to see other energy alternatives used as well.

  • Nuclear energy is the path to the future.

    No other energy production methods come close to the amount of energy a nuclear reaction can create. Nuclear energy produces about a million times more energy per unit weight that other fossil fuels. The heat from the reactions turns water into steam and from there acts like any fossil fuel plant. Remember, heat is also a form of energy, so once we find a way to directly harness the heat energy it will be even better. The nuclear waste produced by the process also produce tremendous amounts of heat, so there's no reason why we couldn't find a way to continue to use them until they finish their decay process in a few ten thousand years (for high level radioactive waste) or a few centuries (for low level waste). Given time new safety methods will also arise making the whole process about as safe as other clean energy sources.

  • Nuclear Energy Needed to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    Yes, expanding nuclear energy production is necesserary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions because nuclear energy production is far more efficient and cost-effective than any other type of of non-greenhouse gas energy production. Solar energy and wind energy are great, in theory, but they require too much space and too much time to produce even a tenth of what nuclear energy can.

  • It is not nevessary.

    Expanding nuclear energy production is not necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. There are plenty of different energy sources that you could use to reduce green house emissions. There is wind power, solar power and even hydro-electric power, all of which can be used to reduce emissions and they are natural.

  • Expanding nuclear energy production is not necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

    Expanding nuclear energy production is not necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Nuclear energy should be thought of as a past tense and never thought of again. With all the technology in the world we should be able to come up with a better solution. Nuclear energy is expensive and dangerous to the environment.

  • Expanding nuclear energy production is not necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

    Expanding nuclear energy production is not necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This is because nuclear energy production actually increases greenhouse gas emissions. Utilizing something that increases emissions will in no way reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This is why expansing nuclear energy production will not reduce greenhouse gas emissions in any way.

  • Not necessary but still not bad

    No expanding nuclear energy production is not necessary to reduce green house gas emissions. If we do not use nuclear energy we will find other ways of reducing green house gas emissions. However, I do think that using nuclear energy can be very beneficial in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the future.
