An essay about the opposite of what I beleave
I think that nuclear power cannot be the energy resource of our
future,because the whole technique is too dangerous.
Here follow the reasons why this isn't true :
- Nuclear power is safe ! If the nuclear power stations are well
kept and used by experts the risk of an accident is as low as in coal
fired power stations for example.
- Nuclear power is clean ! The power stations do not polute as much
as firing power stations.
- Alternative resources aren't as efficient as Nuclear power ! Wind
energy cannot be used everywhere. Only in coast regions is wind energy
useful, while nuclear power is availible everywhere. Same thing with
solar energy and hydro-electric power. The productivity of solor cells
is now only 12% of the energy provided by the sun to them. To use
hydro-electric- power you have to build damms which costs much and
nature will be destroyed by the lake.
- The Uranium can be recycled ! This is not possible with other
- And last but not least, the enourmous amount of energy that is
needed in nower days cannot be produced without nuclear power.
