The paper looks at the relative significance of the key determinant components prone to influence what's to come of atomic power in a cost-benefit analysis. The paper analyses how the nuclear energy will affect the climate and also the use of fossil fuels in order to generate energy. Coal is a major and developing supporter to the outflow of carbon dioxide that as a result leads to global warming. As compared to other energy sources, nuclear power requires consistent government involvement because of security as well as other important reasons. The test is to guarantee a satisfactory supply of energy while constraining the negative complications of energy creation. Burning of natural resources such as coal, fuel, and gas results in the generation of 75% of carbon dioxide, which is the major contributor to climate change.1 Nuclear power is one of the sources that has been tested and is effectively free of greenhouse gas releases. As a result of this, there is a lot of interest in this form of energy. But due to the risks that are attached to this form of energy, the future of such energy is not yet stable. One of the main aims of the paper is to analyze the current situation of nuclear energy and what the future holds for nuclear energy.
