Nuclear Energy

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 states that nuclear energy is a solution to the fossil fuels such as coal and gas that are limited and bring us many problems such as global warming and provides three reasons of support. However the professor explains that the problems that the author mentioned are well known and clear but the nuclear energy is not as good as author mentiond and the reasons for replacing nuclear energy are wrong and refutes each of the author's reasons.

First, the reading claims that the nuclear power is cheaper than the fuel energy. The professor refutes this point by saying that creating nuclear energy needs far more time and spending such a time on creating this kind of energy cannot be a cheap process. He states that countries need some companies to manage to produce nuclear energy which cause that nuclear energy become really expensive.

Second, the reading avers that process of creating nuclear energy is safer. However, the professor declares that accidents always happen and no one can stop them to accure. According to professor creating nuclear power bring a lot of financial damage to the companies and countries.

Third, the article posits that the waste which are produce in generating nuclear power can be managed. The professor opposes this point by explaining that managing the produces waste is not as easy as the author mentioned. We also learn that the wastes which are produced in creating nuclear power are the material which used for weapons and are really dangerous fot the society. These waste should be placed deep on the ground and should remain there for 1000 of years which is really difficult.
