  • Nuclear Energy Argument Essay

    Nuclear energy is a hot topic that is highly controversial. Many of the scholarly articles I have chosen have authors that stand neutral in the debate of nuclear energy. However, there are some articles that solely focus on the cons of nuclear energy. Overall, I have ten external sources that I will be using in my research paper. The first essential component of my essay should be my thesis. Without a proper thesis, writing a long research paper would be difficult. To every one positive of nuclear energy I will have two negatives to counter. There will be some arguments in my paper that purposely target the audience’s emotions. A significant amount of people are sensitive in regards to death. Bringing up the topic of nuclear disasters will profoundly change the views of nuclear energy. Money also could affect the standpoint of my audience. The world is becoming more desperate as fossil fuels are being depleted. I will be attacking people’s beliefs about nuclear energy. This attack will be indirectly, but will come abruptly. Calling for nuclear energy reveals how desperate the world has become. I will back up my claims with evidence that proves that nuclear energy is only considered because we have no other alternative to turn to, at the moment, which can reliably support large populations. Near the end of my argument essay I will provide the audience with the other side of my argument, but then my next paragraph will refute that argument. The purpose of this rebuttal is to…

  • Importance Of Hope For Nuclear Energy

    importance of safety in the use of nuclear energy cannot be overemphasized as several events such as in the Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima (Friedman, 2011) have left sad and regrettable memories that one would not wish for a repetition. In my opinion, I believe that the worst disaster has already taken place in these locations as it is from the lessons learnt that safety measures and regulations are developed to strictly guide against reoccurrence. Issues surrounding nuclear…

  • The Importance Of Nuclear Energy

    World population is growing faster than ever, and as all civilizations, it is needed energy to power their development. Nowadays, we count with powerful sources of energy, fossil-based fuels, which have been highly effective but pollutant since they were discovered. Moreover, alternative energy sources such wind and solar have appeared to complement fossil- based fuels in order to cover our demanding economies’ energy needs and lessen their impact in the environment. However, there is still an…

  • Nuclear Energy Generation

    The Energy of the Generation After the nuclear incidents in Chernobyl and Fukishima, it has created a worldwide panic over the usage of nuclear power. Due to the perceived risks, people were skeptical about whether the use of nuclear power was a reasonable option for producing energy. As a result, countries are resorting to renewable sources such as solar power, wind energy, hydropower, etc. It became an alternative to nuclear energy. Despite the nuclear incidents, nuclear power has greatly…

  • Alternatives: The Four Types Of Alternative Energy

    are four types of alternative energy: nuclear, solar, wind and hydroelectric. These alternative energy sources all have advantages in improving our world. Nuclear energy is an alternative energy that provides electricity at low cost and does not produce gases (Brian & Lamb, 2000). Nuclear power plants are a great alternative to fossil fuel but they are also very dangerous and can cause great disasters. A nuclear power plant relies on nuclear fission to heat the water. Nuclear fission is the…

  • Nuclear Power: Increasing Demand For Energy

    production of more nuclear power plants after the major accidents of Chernobyl and Fukushima resulting in many exposed to high radiation levels which led to cancer or death. When comes great power comes great responsibility, nuclear power usage involves many hazards for the environment, our health, and creates security risks. We must decide whether or not to accept these risks as we move to a new age of technology when creating a long-lasting energy source. Nuclear reactors are very efficient…

  • The Importance Of Nuclear Energy

    Nuclear Chemistry and it’s history. Nuclear Chemistry started in 1895, when William Conrad Roentgen discovered x-rays. Three years later Marie Curie discovered that certain elements were giving off particles. In a metal foil experiment, Ernest Rutherford discovered what the particles were; Alpha, Beta, and Gamma radiation. In just these few years those great scientists made and defined Nuclear Chemistry as we know it today. By 1903, it was concluded that elements become less radioactive over…

  • Solar Energy Standard

    Not only are the trains coal powered, they also create traffic in peak times and indirectly cause extra greenhouse gas emissions through stopped vehicles. New ideas have come about in order to avoid the trains passing as often as they do now. “OmniTRAX, a Denver-based company that manages Great Western Railway, is working to restore an inactive railway from Windsor to Greeley” (De La Rosa). The reroute is mainly due to the traffic and a bad image the train portrays for the city of Fort Collins.…
