Is nuclear energy renewable or not?

    Nuclear fuel presently is a non-renewable energy source. The act of nuclear fission requires uranium or plutonium, of which there are finite amounts found in nature so eventually we will run out. Nuclear fusion, in which two atoms are fused together has the potential to be a renewable source since you can always smash two things together to make fuel.

    Nuclear energy is definitely not renewable, nor will it ever be, as it requires finite resources (namely uranium, sometimes plutonium) that can be exhausted just as coal, oil, and natural gas can be.

    No. Uranium and Plutonium are dug out of the earth just like coal or oil, and their byproducts after use are a dangerous pollutant for a very, very long time.
