Although I’m stern on the use of nuclear energy, I must admit that there are some cons, including the storage of radioactive waste, and the “radiation problems.” When faced between the decision of nuclear energy and fossil fuels, the pros outweigh the cons in favor of the nuclear energy side. They will help buy time in a clean an efficient way for newer alternatives of energy. The storage of radioactive waste is just solved by time, and when the time comes the waste may be dumped. Although this debate has been going on for several years, they may be no actual action taken unless America realizes that the dependence on foreign oil and the environment depends on a cleaner source of energy. Until then, I believe nuclear energy is the way to go.
