Nuclear energy is the world's largest source of emission-free energy. Nuclear power plants produce no controlled air pollutants, such as sulfur and particulates, or greenhouse gases. The use of nuclear energy in place of other energy sources helps to keep the air clean, preserve the Earth's climate, avoid ground-level ozone formation and prevent acid rain.

Conclusion Nuclear energy is one of important energy alternatives. What gives nuclear an advantage is its past record, safety features, and economical promise for the future. Energy should be taken seriously and education of our energy sources should not be limited to the school system but be shared with the city or state, and the energy facility.
