Renewable Energy is a Problem Sold as a Solution

Nuclear energy is the way to go.

Renewable energy proved counter-intuitive against its battle with climate change, as more problems arose for the price of its development.

The most popular alternatives to burning fossil fuel are solar and wind energies, which are way better by a long shot. However, they still have a few environmental impacts that are too risky to ignore. If nothing is done to mitigate those impacts, then we might reach a critical point of no return:

  • Coastal cities (like Miami) will be fully submerged in 80 years
  • Ice will melt at the poles, elevating sea level
  • Farming and earth-grown goods will cease to exist due to flooding
  • Longer dry seasons
  • Poor children relying on farming-dense areas will face extreme malnutrition.
  • Countries will have to adapt to new weather conditions.

The problem with global warming is not in its existence but in the rate at which the earth gets warmer.
