Do we need nuclear power for sustainable energy production?
Renewable energies often harm the environment indirectly.
Renewable sources of energy often rely on
harmful lithium batteries
to store the electricity they produce which hurt the environment. Nuclear power
removes the need
for these batteries.
Hydroelectric dams pose ecological threats to indigenous aquatic life.
Renewables require vast networks of power lines to effectively harvest energy, while nuclear concentrates supply in a smaller number of locations.
Wind turbines kill
between 214,000 and 368,000 birds
annually in North America.
