Nuclear is the core of the topic, nuclear energy is the only alternative that can be a base load supplier

I have argued that the next decade's need for reliable base-load electrical generation in the United States will be solved by building either nuclear power plants or coal-fired power plants; the unreliability of natural gas supplies and prices, and the intermittent nature of current renewable resources, make them unsuitable for base-load needs. The extent to which a significant share of this new generation will be nuclear depends on a wide range of factors, only one of which - ecological impact - is discussed in this article. Insofar as that factor is concerned, however, the evidence overwhelmingly favors nuclear power over coal, and I hope that this will be recognized and taken into consideration. But I am making no prediction as to how important nuclear power will become, because any student of the history of energy knows that all forecasts always seem to be wrong.
2. Counter definition – alternative energy is not fossil fuels Random House, 06 (http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=alternative+energy&r=66 –noun energy,as solar, wind, or nuclear energy, that can replace or supplement traditional fossil-fuel sources, as coal, oil, and natural gas. 3. we allow for one more case, the nuclear AFF, the NEG will find time to cut a NEG 4. Under the NEG interpretation it leads to a race to the bottom, in which only one case become topical A. this kills all education, we only get to run one set of arguments each year B. AFF flex outweighs neg predictability, the NEG has the block, AFF needs some element of surprise 5. Nuclear is good for the topic, it allows us to learn about the most viable alternative to fossil fuels. 6. the Negative can still run their fossil fuels Disads, 7. the NEG can also run nuclear specific CP and DA, which are way better than the crappy renewables DA
8. Nuclear is the most predictable case, everyone is running it and it has a huge literature bases with equal amount of args on both sides. 9. Nuclear energy is alternative energy Geocities ‘04 www.geocities.com/Area51/Labyrinth/2985/diction.html Alternative energy comes from nuclear reactors and renewable energy sources. 10. Their definition limits out all forms of energy including government funded energies and slightly environmentally dangerous alternatives U.S. Department of Energy, Energy Information Administration (EIA) (2007) Annual Energy Review 2006.Center for Sustainable Systems While energy is essential to modern society, most primary sources used today are unsustainable. Over 85% of the nation’s energy comes from fossil fuels; another 8% is derived from nuclear, while less than 7% comes from renewable sources.
