With depleting coal reserves and draining gas and oil wells, energy security is a common concern of the international community. Even more, consistently soaring levels of Carbon dioxide and related toxicity in the environment and palpable climate changes have made nuclear power emerge as a formidable alternative sources of energy in order to ensure an energy secured future for the posterity.

As per the figures, oil reserves are likely to deplete completely in 2055, i.e. 38 years from now. Natural gas reserves are likely to sustain just a few more decades i.e. till 2072 and coal 119 years as coal reserves are expected to deplete completely by 2128. It all depends on technology, economy and energy consumption. Nothing is certain, except the fact that one day we will run out of fossil fuels. Even though technology is developing fast and new reserves are being added regularly, we are using up fossil fuels at ever increasing pace, thereby, compounding the magnitude of damage to the environment. 
While uncontrolled emission of CO2  and other greenhouse gases like Methane (CH4) and Nitrous oxide (N2O)  load the air with toxins. Coal burning power plant leads to the formation over 3,00,000 tonnes of waste ash and sludge every year finally giving rise to pollutants such as arsenic, cadmium, chromium and mercury posing a major threat to the flora and fauna on mother earth.
