ABSTRACT
In this article, the author discusses the exclusion of nuclear energy from renewable energy sources portfolio in the U.S. He suggests that nuclear power should be part of the portfolio because more than 73% of non-carbon-dioxide emitting energy in the country is nuclear energy. He believes that the nuclear plant operating in the U.S. can give safe and clean energy to help reduce the pollutants linked with fossil fuels.
