Molten sodium sits in a beaker atop a hot plate as part of a demonstration at TerraPower, a company developing and building small nuclear reactors, Thursday, Jan. 13, 2022, in Everett, Wash. Bill Gates, the man who revolutionized personal computing, is launching an ambitious project to counter climate change: A nationwide reboot of nuclear energy technology. In November, Gates' company TerraPower announced it had chosen Kemmerer, Wy., for a nontraditional, sodium-cooled nuclear reactor that will bring on workers from a local coal-fired power plant scheduled to close soon. The project comes as many U.S. states see nuclear emerging as an answer to fill the gap as a transition away from coal, oil and natural gas to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

FILE - Steel and concrete containers used for dry storage of spent fuel at the Tennessee Valley Authority's Sequoyah nuclear plant near Chattanooga, Tenn., are shown to the media during a Friday Jan. 13, 2012 tour. As climate change pushes states in the U.S. to dramatically cut their use of fossil fuels, many are coming to the conclusion that solar, wind and other renewable power sources won't be enough to keep the lights on. Nuclear power is emerging as an answer to fill the gap as states transition away from coal, oil and natural gas to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and stave off the worst effects of a warming planet.
