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.

The real problem with nuclear isn't the tech, but the people pushing for it, and the way it's extracted. For one, nuclear fuels are mined and processed by giant corporate players, who would stand to benefit from a swap to nuclear. They can monopolize the fuel source and charge for it whatever they want, with little regard for any economic or moral principle beyond short term gain. You can easily see this in how Rio Tinto leaves the areas in which it mines ecologically devastated and rife with civil conflict. Nuclear fuels are extracted at the price of human lives. As for who ends up using these fuels? You're gonna love this one: Critters like the Koch Brother(s)! They've been shilling and lobbying for nuclear, which, again, can be monopolized, for decades, the same way they've been shilling and lobbying for fossil fuels. Does anyone in their right mind really thing that new nuclear reactors will be well-regulated when the self-same corporate parasites that gave us the climate crisis are in charge?! Which brings us to, storage, intermittency and grid stability. These are talking points routinely flung around by corporate lobbyists as to why renewables are very, very bad. Thing is, those selfsame points apply to fossil fuel and nuclear plants. Those have malfunctions. Or supply chain shortages. Or other countless problems that cause them to shut down. And just about every time it's renewable sources that pick up the slack when nuclear and fossil fuels kick the bucket. Remember Texas? Which is run on both nuclear and fossil fuel, with only a barely-double-digit energy contribution from renewables? Well, when the recent blizzard hit, Texas' renewables outperformed all other sources in terms of reliability and proportional output, exceeding the power grid operators' own projections.

I liked the gaming aspect of this video. I wish there was such game for the youth, to gradually form their perception of renewables and nuclear. It is clear that the current generation which makes the decisions is lost already and that only the new generation can make the more impactful changes.

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.

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.

The reason those turbines and panels failed, was because of incompetent politicians who don't realize you need to winterize your electricity production. Wind turbines and panels work fine everywhere else. Hell turbines work on Antarctica, and solar panels work on satellites in freaking space.

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.

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.

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! 👋

Nuclear has two advantages. One it could cut back on fossil fuel production by providing an alternate energy. Two if it catastrophically fails it can cut back on fossil fuel use by killing everyone nearby. Win-win. 🤦‍♂️ See here is my problem with nuclear energy. It COULD be amazing if we didn’t make mistakes. But the problem is that we are human, and I just can’t see a world in which I can trust that corners won’t be cut in the name of profit. Or any other number of human errors.

Nuclear is the way we could get there fastest and most efficiently at PRESENT understanding. Renewables may improve over the decades but if we want to make radical change fast we need to employ nuclear more. I definitely think the future of nuclear science is to tap into the spent energy until we've found a way to completely utilize every last "drop" of energy left in traditionally considered "spent" fuel.

Given the urgency of climate change, we need to do everything in our power to make fossil fuels a thing of the past. Since renewable cannot, so far, provide all of the electricity that we need. Nuclear needs to be part of our electric-generation mix.
