Nuclear energy is a cheap and relatively clean source of energy for the planet, but lately it has been mired in controversy. Solar energy is often brought up as alternative resource, but is it really better than nuclear energy? Which is better for the planet? Let’s find out in this battle of Nuclear Energy vs Solar Energy!

    get 20% off your solar pannels today and get free cocaine and strippers

    Awesome video! Solar panels are really are amazing, I've been saving around 50$/month on my electricity bills thanks to them. Great investment 🙂 If you're wondering where I got mine: enjoy!

    I am pretty sure you can find good solution on inplix page 🙂

    I have been in the renewable energy field for some time now and have used many products for instructional purposes, but this [link here >>> ] is the best. It has all the material needed to get people here in the IBEW up and running for the installation and design of solar systems

    I needed info for homework….. And then there is an add? Who just does this. Is this copy written or what.

    Sо many uѕеful things tо uѕе this ѕоlаr air light [ Check Details here === ], I wоuld use it саmрing in thе middlе оf the night, I соuld аlѕо use it when thеrе is a lighting оutаgе, tо go dig thrоugh thе dark unitѕ in оur ѕtоrаgе, аmоng so mаnу оthеr imроrtаnt rеаѕоnѕ!

    I саn ѕее several of these in mу futurе. Thе firѕt one will gо in mу daughter’s camper. They gо out mоѕt weekends аnd аѕ thе wеаthеr wаrmѕ uр the kidѕ likе tо pitch a tеnt. Inevitably thеу fаll аѕlеер with their flashlights оn аnd kill the bаttеriеѕ [ Check Details here === ].

    I just discovered a dead simple trick that brings any battery back to life again…It simple, quick …and really works [Check Details Here==> ]. And once you learn this, you’ll pretty much never have to buy batteries again!

    I don't get it. How does solar energy produce electrical energy? What are the energy transformations that occur? Anyone know?

  21. Darth Megatronus says:

    I'm on the fence when figuring out which is better. They are both efficient and safe. So how am I supposed to figure out?

  22. Louis Parr says:

    What about cold fusion

  23. Noah Regan says:

    I think they both just need more research.

    Nuclear is worse than solar.
    1) Nuclear Power is expensive to install.
    2) You need Storage for Nuclear waste.
    3) Nuclear waste takes millennia to stop being radioactive.
    4) Nuclear factories have a hidden cost. You have to pay millions to decommission them. You can’t just switch them off.
    5) Nuclear Power is a health risk especially in regions with seismic activity or close to the sea.
    6) Nuclear Power is more expensive. Solar power is becoming cheaper and cheaper every year. It would take you 10 years to build a new Nuclear Power Plant if you wanted one now. In the same 10 years which will be around 2028, solar power will be the cheapest form of energy on the planet. This is not just because of the decreasing price of solar, this is also due to the improved efficiency of the solar panels.
    7) Nuclear can’t go everywhere. You lose energy sending power across the grid. Solar power delivers energy directly at its source.
    8) Nuclear energy is very dangerous if used incorrectly. You could have a melt down and a large explosion including miles and miles or radiated land.
    9) Nuclear Fission Power May be dead in several decades when Fusion Power comes along. This may even lead to an earlier decommission of the power plant due to its unpopularity and perceived level of pollution. The exact same thing happened with Coal Power plants which have been decommissioned early due to pollution.

    Sorry but how in the fuck do people die from solar?

    The power source is the sun?

    People on roofs falling off is the only logical explanation.

  28. Miloshmkd says:

    Nuclear without a doubt.

  30. Rick Budé says:

    Solar power delivers 6.3% of the worldwide electricity consumption?
    I highly doubt that, as it was 1.9% in 2016 according to Wikipedia.

  31. Tarek Emad says:

    As engineer who studies and works in renewable energy, let me add some notes:
    1. Nuclear energy is better as a base load for the grid and it works at night.
    2. Solar panels have more potential than illustrated in the video because it's modular meaning you can buy it in very some amount which is better for off grid usage and better for activities like underground water pumping.
    3. In the video, they didn't illustrate the solar has two forms either thermal or PV panels. Futhermore, each has more categories under

    You have one of the best information channels I must say.

    We just need fusion reactors.

  37. mykell fann says:

    So why are we not building more nuclear power

  38. Police 159 says:

    Russellville Arkansas United States has one

  39. Vishal Yadav says:

    Only solution is Nuclear…..Solar Power will always be an alternative
    The Gigantic Magnitude of Nuclear Power only can fulfill need of our Power Hungry World.

    operating costs comparison not super fair though… should include construction costs as well.
