Based on ethical, ecological, and economics considerations, the writers conclude that it is not acceptable to consider nuclear energy as part of national’s energy mix, especially for developing countries, because of many reasons, including: radiation risks of radioactive waste, the capital-intensive development cost of a NPP which may cause heavy foreign loan to that nation, and also the risks of contamination of water and environment during uranium mining and spent fuel storage. Because of the above mentioned reasons, Christian people and common people should suggest to their governments to push forward the use of renewable energies especially WWS. For the short term, coal and natural gas can be considered as a temporary alternative.
