Nuclear Viability


Although this study shows how feasible uranium collecting can be, much research still needs to be conducted in order for these methods to be enacted en masse.


Unfortunately, it's also currently much easier to gather uranium from the ground compared to the ocean.


And the debate on whether or not nuclear is a good alternative to fossil fuels still remains. Although the process is carbon-free, converting uranium to electricity creates a lot of hazardous waste that's difficult to dispose of.


Nuclear accidents aren't unheard of, and we definitely don't want another Fukushima disaster to happen.


If we're looking strictly at carbon-free alternatives of energy production, nuclear doesn't seem like such a bad choice at all if we can mitigate its downsides.


At least we know that research to move us away from harmful fossil fuels once and for all is making progress.
