Melbourne, Nov. 4: Top climate scientists have claimed that the development of safer nuclear power can help in decelerating the effects of global warming by cutting down on fossil fuel pollution.
To promote their belief, four scientists, including Tom Wigley from the University of Adelaide, have written to environmentalists and politicians urging them to support nuclear power, News.com.au reported.
The letter claims that wind and solar energy are not enough to power the world within the next few decades as such energy sources cannot scale up fast enough to deliver the amount of cheap and reliable power the world needs.
With the planet warming and carbon dioxide emissions rising faster than ever, one cannot afford to turn away from any technology that has the potential to reduce greenhouse gases, scientists asserted. (ANI)
