The claim “Nuclear energy is the most efficient and viable energy source for the future of our planet”. Can be explored in multiple different features. The first feature that can be explored is how nuclear energy outperforms the other types of energy that is already available today, for example, solar energy, energy that predominately come from the sun, Wind energy, energy that comes from wind and fossil fuels, coal and other non-renewable resources that come from under the ground. The second aspect that can be researched is the how long nuclear energy can be used for compared to the other forms of energy available, and if that it is worth using it compared to those. The third aspect is the amount of money it costs to produce, use, and distribute nuclear energy rather than other energy sources. The fourth aspect that can be explored is the effects that is had on the environment compared the effects other energy sources, like fossil fuels that have known negative effects on the environment.
The research question to be investigated is as follows: Is the use of nuclear energy more environmentally viable for the future of the planet than the current available energy sources.
The positive and negative environmental effects nuclear energy has on the environment.
The use of nuclear energy in nuclear power plants produce no direct carbon emissions to the atmosphere however, the most concerning factor is not from the use of the nuclear energy but rather from the mining of uranium and water discharges. Mining uranium impacts
