    Nuclear energy at this stage is able to provide larger amounts of energy required by humanity, unfortunately current solar panels are not able to harness enough of the suns energy for it to be sustainable, so I would have to agree on nuclear energy at this stage to keep my pc running, lights working ect.

    I can stick a solar panel on a calculator or on my RV. Can't do that with a nuclear reactor. It really depends on what kind of power you want and where you want it.

      @sigfried but solar panels only provide 15% of the sun’s energy that hits it.

      @banipal Better than none since we don't have to do anything or use any resources to make it, only to capture it.

      Like I said, it depends on the situation. Solar is useless for mass scale power generation in many parts of the world. It's super useful all over as a supplemental source though.

      If we can get fusion power working, that would be better than fission power but so far, no luck on that front.

      Nuke power's biggest problem is that when it goes wrong, its really terrifying. So its hard to get anyone to volunteer to have it near where they live or to have the waste near where they live.

      But it is very rational from a public policy perspective.
