Global warming is not a myth and here's the best argument for nuclear energy: ZERO EMISSION from significantly safer NPP 3.0s, yes even those from Russia and China, providing the cheapest possible electricity for value driven economies like Bangladesh ready to emerge. Renewable resources such as solar, geothermal and wind are expensive and do not produce enough to run a 50 to 500+ employee enterprise let alone a Data Center for that matter. Hydro has environmental and sociopolitical issues because you'll need to displace segments of the population in the most densely populated, justice-challenged country in the world.

Future generations, provided the current trend towards idiocracy is effectively reversed, will surely figure out a way to dispose of if not recycle nuclear waste when an NPP 3.0 dies after 60 to 120 years of service. If they don't, perhaps we don't deserve to survive as a species.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
