ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's view concerning the issue relative to nuclear energy and environmental sustainability. He claims that the need to reassert the paradigm shift in addressing the increasing demands for energy is significant to obtain energy security. He discusses that the topics of sustainability should be included in the nuclear industry's guidelines. He denotes that achieving sustainability require policies that support conserving and recycling the use of renewable energy and resources. Moreover, he emphasizes that proper evaluation depicting the environmental, health and economic impacts of nuclear energy should be determined.
