The 20th century saw the use of fossil fuels such as coal, gas, and oil as the predominant sources of energy for our society. But, with their use have come a number of serious problems, such as their limited availability and the question of global warming. Nuclear energy must be seen as the solution, as the next logical step in the evolution of energy production.

First, the fuel that powers nuclear power plants is cheap compared to the fossil fuels we currently use to supply most of our energy needs. Because it exists in such abundant supplies, a unit of fuel used in nuclear power plants costs about 7 dollars. This unit produces the same amount of energy as 84 dollars of oil or 29 dollars of gas. The potential savings to consumers is enormous.

Second, despite what some may believe, the process of creating nuclear energy is relatively safe. Though production involves large amounts of dangerous radiation, nuclear power plants incorporate an array of measures to ensure that this radiation is contained and poses no danger to the public. Elaborate equipment is used throughout nuclear plants to monitor and control all processes. Furthermore, this machinery will shut down under any abnormal circumstances to prevent a catastrophe.

Third, the hazardous radioactive waste generated by nuclear power plants can be effectively managed. Fuel reprocessing is one measure often employed. This process takes the waste produced in plants and reuses it. It draws out 25% more energy from the original fuel source and reduces the amount of high-level waste, the most radioactive and therefore dangerous, by 80%. Consequently, the remaining waste possesses much less radioactivity and is even easier to dispose of.

The article claims that nuclear energy should be considered as the solution to energy production and also it is the next logical step for the evolution of energy prodution. The speaker refutes to this claim by saying that the reasons that the article suggests are not well thought out and opposes to each point.

First, the article says that nuclear energy is cheaper compared to the fossil fuels because it is abundant. The lecturer opposes to this notion by arguing that nuclear energy is not cheaper and the building of nuclear facilities demand much more time and expertise and money. Furthermore, the legislation in many countries helps to fund the emergency plans which has a significant cost.

Second, the article claims that the production process of nuclear energy is safe. The speaker refutes to this cliam by explaining that accidents still happen and that currently, preventing catastrophes can be davastating. He continues to explain by giving an example. He says that the PDR experiment released a small amount of radiation which was not a threat to the public. however, the financial damage was huge and cost 1 billion dollars.

Third, the article asserts that the dangerous radioactive waste can be managed. The speaker challenges this notion by stating that the waste is not easily managed and that the waste poses real danger .Even after reprocessing the nuclear waste it still poses a real danger has to be buried deep under ground where it can remain for hundreads of years.
