As Renewables Falter, Environmentalists Stand Up For Nuclear

Environmentalists have long promoted renewable energy sources as better for nature. But a new study suggests that the expansion of mining for the materials to make solar panels and wind turbines may pose a greater threat than climate change to endangered species.ย ย
