Nuclear and the fight against climate change
The rest of nature is at odds with humans, and it is losing. From an equilibrium population of ten million to a projected ten billion by the year 2100, nature just can't sustain this sudden escalation in population. We need to alter this trend, and that's where energy comes in, writes Dhruv Dharamshi.
Attempting to meet this energy demand by conventional means isn't without its own challenges and side effects. Human activity and greenhouse gas emission are - with 95% certainty - the dominant cause of current climate change. The warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and since the 1950s, many of the observed changes are unprecedented over decades to millennia.
We urge world leaders and decision makers to strongly consider the following communicating the urgent need to expand nuclear energy in order to limit the rise in the average temperature of the planet to no more than 2 degrees Celsius: Nuclear energy is clean, reliable and indispensable.
