Michael Fox, Emeritus Professor in Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences - Nuclear power may just be the most important solution to our search for clean, sustainable energy sources. Although wind and solar can contribute to our energy mix, we need a reliable source to meet large-scale energy demands. However, most people are wary, if not downright afraid, of nuclear power. It's time to clear up misconceptions and examine the science behind nuclear power, in order to determine what role it could and should play in our future. NOTE: There are supporters of nuclear energy on both sides of the Anthropogenic Global Warming, AGW, topic. The position of this website is that nuclear power is important to deal with climate change from all causes. See articles about AGW under the tab, ENVIRONMENT.
