The most significant reason that makes nuclear energy preferable to solar energy is that it is clean and does not produce gaseous emissions that may be harmful to the environment.
For example, nuclear energy does not emit any sulfur, toxic or greenhouse gases that may be disastrous to the environment.
Walker argues that "in the thirty years, the world will be depleted of oil and coal, hence making the world vulnerable to insufficient sources of energy" (205).
Therefore, scientists are recommending that the world must start converting nuclear energy before a major crisis of fossil fuel crops in.
Today, China is a global leader in the utilization of nuclear sources of energy, especially through the utilization of WRT power generation.
Although France and Germany abandoned their advanced nuclear programs, they still extensively make use of nuclear energy.
With little amount of uranium a great amount of energy can be produced.
It is a reliable source to rely on as there is significant amount of it on the Earth’s crust.
Quite often, when states go to war, they seek to use nuclear weapons for military purposes and uphold their interests by safeguarding their security.
This is done to quell other countries from seeking nuclear weapons and strengthen the security prone areas instead of encouraging the adoption of nuclear power.
