Nuclear fusion plays a vital role in the continuance of life on Earth because it is the means of energy production employed the sun. If the sun was unable to fuse lighter elements into heavier elements through the thermo... More »

Nuclear energy is non-renewable because the energy nuclear power produces cannot constantly be replenished. An energy source must have resources that can be replenished to be considered renewable. More »

Some disadvantages of nuclear fusion energy include high costs of production, a long period of planning and development, the raw material is scarce, the risk to national security and risk of radiation. Nuclear fusion als... More »
