This video spotlights the contribution of nuclear energy to achieving a carbon-free world. However, government regulations and policies make scaling up of nuclear energy impossible; many nuclear plants are currently undergoing decommissioning and no tangible replacement is done except going back to fossil fuels which appear to be cheaper. This is not appropriate if we want to achieve SDG 7 and a net zero by 2030 and 2050 respectively. This resource is factual and recommended for teaching.
