Club4: Nuclear vs Renewables? the fight for energy supremacy

Fossil fuel-related air pollution kills 10,000 everyday. Because of this, countries such as China and the USA are investing heavily on nuclear energy. However, in Latin America, it is seen as negative and some nations have banned it. It’s time to re-evaluate this point-of view. In this club, we will research and explore the science of (fission and fusion) nuclear energy and evaluate how safe it is. We will collect and assess relevant information from different sources. We will apply Python tools to qualify the multi-dimensional impacts of available energy sources and compare them. Finally, we will take on the role of science-policy advisors to create an affordable and clean energy strategy for the continent.
