Nuclear power is atomic energy that provides us with nuclear energy as a source of electricity for our homes and businesses. Over the years, researchers have tried to find better and safer alternatives to nuclear power. Nuclear power is very costly, so it won’t reduce our need for oil supplies from the Middle East. Furthermore, there is no safe way to mine, store or process nuclear materials. Therefore, one of the alternatives, while not very widely used (yet), is wind power.
Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form of energy and is, in my opinion, a much better and safer alternative to nuclear power. Wind power is more versatile, cleaner and reusable, and the price continues to decrease over time. So far, only 80 countries around the world are using wind power. With a depletion of oil and coal in the years to come, more countries will turn to wind power to fulfill its energy needs.
