As global warming demands more intense decarbonization, scientists focus on nuclear power as part of the solution. While serious issues of waste storage and disaster potential persist, engineers are designing safer, more efficient nuclear power plants. Meanwhile, industry pundits work harder than ever to educate a skeptical public about nuclear safety and cost. This Nature commentary provides a multifaceted discussion of the lingering questions about the viability of nuclear power as a safe, essential energy source in a warming world.
