At the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris, world leaders at last seemed to recognize the reality of climate change.Ironically, the world's best bet to achieve the Paris Agreement's goals is to rely on an energy source that is often demonized: nuclear power.One kilogram of coal, by contrast, provides about 7 kWh of energy – 20,000 times more.Wind has a similar energy density.Nuclear energy is the one carbon-free energy source without these environmental downsides.And a nuclear plant, which can operate for 60 years, is more resilient to extreme weather than wind or solar plants.Likewise, although no one died from radiation released by the 2011 accident at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi plant, that episode was widely regarded as proof that countries should abandon nuclear power.
The next energy
revolution must be a nuclear one
