    Debate is raging in the United States over whether the time is up for nuclear energy.

    Many of the country’s ageing power plants are due to close by the end of the decade.

    That is being applauded by some activists who consider them unsafe. But others say whatever replaces the carbon emissions-free energy could be a step backwards for climate goals.
