Many environmentalists still opposed nuclear power, saying that it is not possible to dispose of the radioactive waste of nuclear energy. But on the other hand, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author says that this is the safer energy source among all other energy sources. He said if this world wants to decrease the carbon emission, nuclear energy can help to reduce the emission of the carbon.
Nuclear Power for Energy Solutions
Nuclear power has advantages and disadvantages like other power sources. The first and foremost advantage of nuclear energy it produces nuclear fusion energy instead of chemical burning. Nuclear power can generate baseload type of electricity without any output of carbon, carbon is a major element of global warming in this world. Let’s discuss some major benefits of nuclear power.
Nuclear Power Release Less Radiation
Nuclear plants that generate power operates at a higher capacity factor than renewable energy or fossil fuel sources. Capacity factor is measured by the percentage of time when a power plant actually produces power. This is a big problem for all intermittent power sources. The wind not always blows, nor the sun always shine, nor does the water always flow to run the turbines.
