    No, there's no way we can build enough nuclear reactors fast enough, and the amount of available uranium is limited. Also, that uranium has to be processed and there literally are only a few (5) factories who can do that.

    and then there's the fact that mining uranium causes loads of radioactive dust, and we have no way to dispose of the waste.

    No commercially viable thorium or fusion-reactors exist

    It is not needed. There is no man made global warming.

    It's far too late to avoid the consequences of climate change. 

    But , nuclear power could help more humans survive those consequences.

    Desalinating sea water consumes huge amounts of electricity. 

    The scarcity of Fresh water for crops and drinking , will eventually become the undeniable proof that climate change deniers will face.

    It's practical...but unless we want a world full of Chernobyls, we need to increase the safety standard, and find better ways of dealing with waste.

    nope. increasing the amount of dangerous nuclear waste is not the way to go as weather patterns become more unpredictable and violent.

    It's the only viable solution that's on the table.

    Of course not.  It's also not safe.

    It's the only power source that will keep up with demand. Especially if we go to electric vehicles. Renewable energy won't do it.

    It is definitely the most practical solution.
