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.

Stupid science Science doesn't know Viruses convert sunlight into oil fields. Viruses appearing for the first time on Earth are extremely sophisticated, viruses know to absorb photons ( sunlight ) to get energy the virus to work, after millions of years the virus developin algae . Algae convert photons turned into an oil field. Sunlight - absorbing algae convert into positrons + and electrons -- Algae uses 928 positrons + that attract 917 electrons -- creating protons + Algae 918 positrons + that attract 918 electrons -- creating neutrons Algae use 6 protons + that attract 8 neutrons attracts 6 electrons -- create carbon ( c55 h72 o5 chlorophyll ) Algae use 1 proton + to attract 1 electron -- generating hidro ( c55 h72 o5 chlorophyll ) Algae reproduce fast like bacteria When dead algae are deposited into sediments, sediments decompose after millions of years in to oil fields

On earth? Probably nuclear energy could help but maybe become less popular in the far future A idea I have is that when we get to places like Mars, we could maybe use it there? It could be a place where coal and other sources of energy can be contained and used. If CO2 makes the world hotter, why not try that on Mars? would make the freezing wasteland hotter? Nuclear waste could also be stored there, as well as power plants being used there. That way in case of accidents, deaths can be a bit more minimalized and away from cities and places where mass death can occur? This is just a idea. feel free to criticize or give other ideas to me

I’m curious though, would it be possible to create a nuclear reactor that would work under zero gravity, and if that is a possibility, why don’t we just move them to space and figure out a way to convey the energy they produce over massive distances (make it like a space station so that maintenance can be performed) and have some kind of storage module that could contain a large amount of nuclear waste. Then, a way to unload said nuclear waste or launch it at the sun so that it would burn up? I know this has probably been talked about somewhere but still it’s an idea haha.

Auf jeden Fall you do, otherwise you guys need to buy energy from France or importing natural gas from Russia via the almost finished Nord Stream 2, and also facing US sanction for dealing with the Russians or as a last resort, you guys will burn brown coal which increases carbon emission.

When you get into funding new things you also get into the politics of how a nation should be spending its money, and I don’t think they want to spark political discourse in the comments. It is a science channel after all, not a political one!

There are barley any nuclear dangers with new nuclear power plants. They use nuclear pebbles instead of rods which if everything goes completely wrong the power plant will release barely any radiation. Which the chance of that happening is so so SO low.

@Scott Cook yeah its natural and everything that is natural is balanced out with the other systems and the life of the planet, but we broke the balance and now the damage that climate change is going to cause is ridiculously high. what we want to do is reduce the damage and bring it back to balance. it is not difficult to understand if you read a basic science book

Solar and wind have no negative effects ? Oh please, Solar farm use Solar panels which reflect sun's energy back, every flying creatures who passes by will die of burning. And wind fields do the same, too. The turbo fans kill thousands of flying creature years by years. There're pros and cons of each type of energy, but if we want to step further, we have to use Nulear Energy. My country tried to build a Nuclear power plant once, but the locals were just too afraid of the consequence of nuclear waste so our government had to stop. As a citizen, i still hope our country can build one in the near future.

We've been polluting earth with greenhouse gases only for like a century or so and the situation already got worse so much, we really need to move on from them really fast, because it will get only worse like really really fast, not in some future like century after, but during our life time in following decade or so And about Russia.. Yea, our country definitely can technically, but it won't practically simply because of corruption For real, 90% of the budget dedicated to build some new nuclear power plant will be wasted by higher up in the government "people" and it won't be finished even in a decade
