Nuclear energy and climate challenges

69% of French people think that nuclear energy contributes to the production of CO² and to climate change. In actual fact, nuclear is one the sources of power which creates the least of these emissions! So let's put aside preconceived ideas and take a look at the potential that this energy offers in a context of energy transition.
