How can nuclear energy be used to solve the problem of burning fossil fuels?
Because nuclear power is reliable and can be deployed on a large scale, it can directly replace fossil fuel plant, avoiding the combustion of fossil fuels for electricity generation. Whilst electricity is clean at the point of use, its generation currently produces over 40\% of all energy-related carbon emissions.
Is it possible to replace the energy requirement of the country by renewable energy sources?
“It is technically possible to achieve almost 100\% renewable energy sources within the next four decades,” concludes the World Wildlife Federation’s (WWF) 2011 Energy Report, which sees wind, solar, biomass and hydropower as the future major players.
Would nuclear energy help fix our current pollution problems?
Nuclear energy protects air quality and the health of millions of people by avoiding the harmful emissions that cause acid rain and smog. Nuclear can go further than any other energy source to reduce air pollution-related health problems and deaths caused by burning fossil fuels.

What is the future of non conventional sources of energy?
Renewable fuels are expected to grow faster than fossil fuels, although fossil fuels will account for more than three-quarters of world energy consumption through 2040. Natural gas is expected to be the fastest-growing fossil fuel in the future, with global natural gas consumption increasing by 1.4\% per year.
