VIDEO: Why nuclear is needed alongside wind and solar

Why, in light of the scale and urgency of climate change, environmentalists are looking again at nuclear energy.

[Language: Swedish and English]

If we are to succeed in keeping the global temperature rise below two degrees, we need to quickly replace our fossil energy sources with solar, wind, water and nuclear power.

Nuclear energy also provides us with reliable baseload power, regardless of the weather. Countries that do not have nuclear power are usually forced to use fossil fuels as baseload, resulting in significant greenhouse gas emissions.
