Fossil and Nuclear Energy

The future of fossil fuels is an important factor in predicting the future of energy in general. However, as non-fossil energies such as renewables and nuclear power gain traction, some predictions predict that the share of non-fossil energies will rise while the share of fossil fuels will fall. Of course, each energy source has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, and there is no such thing as perfect energy. The future of fossil fuels is dependent on how we can improve their strengths while overcoming their weaknesses and challenges.

After hydropower, nuclear power is the second largest source of clean energy. The energy used to mine and refine the uranium that powers nuclear power, as well as to manufacture the concrete and metal used to construct nuclear power plants, is typically supplied by fossil fuels, resulting in CO2 emissions. however, nuclear plants emit no CO2 or air pollution while in operation.
