Tekmage renewable v.s. non-renewable resources (1038 comments)

At least the raw materials used for solar and wind power can be reused and replaced over time.

Nuclear is just another form of non-renewable energy source, like coal, oil and natural gas. Once it's gone, it's gone and we'll be even more S.O.L.'d than before, given our current increasing rate of energy use.

IMNSHO, the only place nuclear makes any sense is in space, where a few thousand years to decay doesn't matter so much and the space between stars is dark.
