Nuclear Energy ETF

Of course nuclear energy is also an alternative energy compared to oil, gas and coal. We all know that nuclear energy may be dangerous but I think that it is a mistake to say that nuclear energy would be more dangerous than oil, gas or coal.

Maybe the opposite is true. Of course, a nuclear disaster will be spectacular and hot news for months but the emissions from oil, gas and coal are a silent killer that does not make headlines but is damaging too.

But the resistance to nuclear energy is still heavy so it is most certainly not for tomorrow that nuclear energy will be on everyone’s agenda.
