Question: Is fission and fusion energy renewable?
Answer: Nuclear energy, fission and fusion reactions, is not a renewable energy. When atoms undergo fission or fusion they are consumed and a different atom or set of atoms are produced as well as some energy. The original set of atoms is not replenished naturally in the reactions, so it is not a renewable source of energy.
