Do we have enough materials to use nuclear power for all of our energy?

    We do for a while.  Nuclear Power is highly efficient, so a small amount of fuel can generate a large amount of electricity.  Professor Bernard Cohen of the University of Pittsburgh estimates that we have enough uranium to power the world for approximately 100 years.  But it is important to note that nuclear fuel is finite, and while it is a much better option than fossil fuel combustion in the short term, we must eventually transfer our needs to “infinitely” renewable energies, such as hydropower, solar power, and wind power.
