Summary of "Response to "Regarding nuclear energy: Between global electricity demand, worldwide decarbonisation imperativeness, and planetary environmental implications"."

In their critical comments, Davies et al. (2019) claim that our paper (Prăvălie and Bandoc, 2018) features a series of shortcomings, such as the lack of quantitative or qualitative weighting of the nuclear energy trilemma, the insufficient analysis of specialized scientific literature or the presence of certain inconsistencies and inaccuracies throughout the paper. Starting from the idea that debate in the nuclear energy sector, in this particular instance, or in science, in general, is constructive, as long as based on credible arguments, we acknowledge these comments and wish to provide pertinent responses for each critical observation. Given this context, this scientific communication is meant to provide explanations and justify the fact that the findings of the original review-type paper (Prăvălie and Bandoc, 2018) are real and supported by various relevant scientific data and papers, and that our vision on the global nuclear energy trilemma is sufficiently substantiated.
