The World Nuclear Industry Reports Half Of The World Gets More Power From Renewable Energy Over Nuclear Power
Back in the 1950s, scientists discovered that energy can be generated from splitting atoms. This reaction was known as nuclear fission and by the 90s, it became the forefront leader as the “energy of the future.” However, nuclear fission did have a major flaw: the constant waste of radiation. As a result, environmentalists did their best to find other forms of harvesting electricity, specifically from the sun and the wind.
Now, it seems renewable energy is leading the charge as innovations such as abandoned golf course solar power plants and wind trees are made. As a matter of fact, renewable energy has grown so much over the last 15 years that the World Nuclear Industry reports that half the world gets most of its power from renewable energy, not nuclear.
