Abstract

Nuclear power has been considered as a potential energy source to mitigate climate change problems thanks to its carbon-free power and huge supply capacity. Besides, it helps secure a country's energy supply, ultimately ensuring a nation’s sustainability. However, nuclear-energy-related disastrous events, such as the US military’s nuclear bombing of Japanese cities in 1945, and the Chernobyl and Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant disasters, have shown the destructive power of atomic elements. In order to have a comprehensive view of the problem of nuclear energy, its strengths and weaknesses, this paper will summarize the conference report ‘Thorium energy for the world’ and discuss the possibility of science and technology in the promising energy field.
