Do we need nuclear power for sustainable energy production?
Nuclear fission is better than using renewable energy sources.
Nuclear fission is more reliable than renewable energy sources.
Renewable power can not produce enough energy to match our needs.
Nuclear energy is the only technology that can be used on a sufficiently wide scale because it requires only limited land.
Renewables require vast networks of power lines to effectively harvest energy, while nuclear concentrates supply in a smaller number of locations.
Because nuclear energy is already developed, it will more quickly abate climate change than new or experimental energy sources.
The scope of planning for nuclear power plants is putting nuclear energy at a disadvantage.
Nuclear power produces nuclear waste.
There are serious safety concerns with the use of nuclear power.
Nuclear power can only really be used for the '
' of the national grid, since it is slow to spin up/spin down according to demand.
Renewables can take up this space as long as there is available power storage technologies (ie batteries, pressurised steam, reversing hydroelectric dams etc).
