Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Concerns about what replaces nuclear power in US” – below is their description.
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.

Nuclear power is the use of nuclear reactions that release nuclear energy to generate heat, which most frequently is then used in steam turbines to produce electricity in a nuclear power plant. Nuclear power can be obtained from nuclear fission, nuclear decay and nuclear fusion reactions.
