Everything will work out through communication and understanding. Violence has never been a good solution to a problem. The bigger the fireworks, the bigger the show but who will be left after the show?
High Level Radioactive waste is a global issue. It is a problem that most of the developed countries have. The overconsumptions in the developed countries have led to the inclination towards production of more nuclear energy. In the high energy demanding world of ours, nuclear power plants may be the best option for energy production in the countries like United States, Japan, and France. We humans have always been taking an extra step to fulfill our needs.
As the worldwide population will inevitably increase over the next 100 years, developing nations will want to obtain a better standard of living and for that energy is required. Our current model of “capitalism” doesn’t take into account the Earth is not a replaceable commodity. The delicate eco-systems of our planet can ill afford continuing the destruction of its resources and the pollution of its oceans and sky. Scientists the world over are working on developing more sensible and eco-friendly energy options. Nuclear energy accounts for over 19% of total electrical output in the United States.
Nuclear energy Nuclear Power and its uses is a growing discussion in today’s era of technology. Australia is one of the developed countries where the demands of energy resources are increasing rapidly. Nuclear energy is coming up as a great alternative, but various factors support as well as oppose its growth. Some countries oppose the usage of nuclear energy because of the problems associated with its usage. Production and Maintenance of nuclear power is very expensive.
Energy is the key to accomplish economic,social and environmental targets of humankind, and amount of energy consumption,vanishing energy reserves, and production methods has been the most controversial subject in today's world. Scholars, governments, companies and societies are looking for a solution to fulfill the rising energy demand over the rapidly industrializing world. All these effort is to reach global economic growth in an environmentally non-destructive, efficient way. As the energy consumption increases worldwide, new terms like sustainability and efficiency of energy, vulnerability in supply and the effects to the environment are becoming more popular terms. Forecasting the results of new coming challenges like climate change and the search for a affordable energy with a reasonable cost with enlightening policies are the most attractive research subjects.
Increasing the amount of nuclear waste and reducing the size of the territories for their burial will make the United States face a vexed problem, because currently the elaboration of nuclear waste is not possible. The U.S. government should first promote the research aimed to find alternative ways to deal with energy shortages. Based on the fact that, despite its advantages, nuclear power might lead to catastrophic consequences of not local, but a global scale, it is necessary to seek for the solutions that will ensure minimal harm to human health and the natural balance of ecosystems.
The current largest sources of energy are the combustion of coal, oil, and natural gas. Fear of radiation may push nuclear power under the carpet but another fear of the unknown is how costly is this going to be? If we as the public have to overcome the fear of radiation and costly project, we first have to understand the details of nuclear energy. The known is a lot less scary then the unknown. If we could put away all the presumptions we have about this new energy source, then maybe we can understand that this would be a good decision for use in the near future.
The nuclear waste is unlikely to expose to people, because there are guards who will protect the waste in where it is stored at. Lastly, there are some bad things about nuclear energy, but it is not much compared to the good things. In conclusion, nuclear energy is an efficient source to produce electricity. With nuclear energy, over million tons of carbon dioxide are reduced in the U.S. Nuclear energy also help reduce the amount of land use to produce electricity and get more free land for other purposes. According to the low accident rate of nuclear energy, nuclear power plants would be consider as a safe way to produce electricity.
These solutions whilst being very expensive to set up initially and have a larger carbon footprint during setup than nuclear plants they will, in the long run produce no carbon emissions, have a very small footprint on the landscape and eventually pay off their initial set up costs. Also with the exclusion of some wind farms, renewable systems will generally run very quietly or even silent compared to a massive nuclear plant or fossil fuel plant. So therefore this is why nuclear power is the way forward in terms of powering Britain. As now it looks like that the pros highly outweigh the cons in terms of overall carbon emissions, power o... ... middle of paper ... ... beyond our current ‘renewable’ solution. Meaning we may never need any of these systems in the future.
The spread/distribution of nuclear weapons, or nuclear proliferation, troubles world leaders and at the same time, ensures them. If a country were to acquire nuclear weapons, other nations would be concerned. However, if a country were to acquire nuclear weapons, they would feel safe from enemies. This idea can be compared to the basic laws of supply and demand. Countries acquire nuclear capability for the sole purpose of increasing their power relative to other countries.
