â€˜Nuclear power is the only answer to global energy needs.â€™ How far do you agree?
The philosophy of todayâ€™s centaury becomes the common sense for the next. Going through the development and civilization humans have made themselves dependent of own discoveries in an attempt to make their life advanced, easier and efficient. Aftermath industrial revolution ,humans can not sustain without energy ,there is an easy and thoughtless reliance on imported oil and 80% of demand for energy is fulfilled by non-renewable energy .These are in verse of extinct as all these resources are in limited Quantity. The sources humans are using today are all fossil fuels formed through decomposition of biomass from millions of years ago. They are to end soon . Nowadays researchers are more into seeking up another source to replace our dependence in fossil fuels. Nuclear power stands as one option.
Nuclear energy is energy in the nucleus of an atom. Atoms are tiny particles that ...view middle of the document...
Nuclear energy can be produced in large quantity with very less amount of uranium. Comparing with the problem of pollution and waste management created by use of these fossil fuels, nuclear energy is much cleaner and waste is so less that one can even stores all the waste in one year from nuclear power plant under a desk.
However Nuclear power is not the only way to face global energy needs. As an alternative to present sources of energy various other forms of energy can also be used. Solar energy, hydro power and wind energy are some of most abundant forms of energy. These energy can be generated in much cleaner form and while using it; gives no such pollutants. Furthermore solar energy is in free form and the only thing all need to invest in is to transfer them to other reliable form of energy that one can perform his task.
Generating nuclear power needs huge manpower n technology which is not a cheaper means at all. It is very risky job as well. But it is still more abundant form than solar n other sources which is no more than pipe dream for today. Since nuclear power can be supplied in cheaper rates once its production moves from experimental to commercial purpose. We can have benefit from economies of scale. If all act decisively to improve then we can have energy from nuclear power in most safe, cost effective and most efficient form for energy.
We can also be using solar but we will soon be in desperate need for energy, The energy from slow and long process of generating energy will still not be able to able to fulfill huge demand by humans. To supply energy to global level we need some better ways and it can be done from nuclear power plant. World cannot be waiting another million years for formation of more fusel fuels and we cannot sustain till this pipedream of getting energy from solar power turns into reality. Today all have the hope with nuclear energy and as risk is in everything we do, one should be careful while dealing with it and world will no more have to fear for energy crisis.
Hence, Nuclear power plant is one good solution for global energy problem but it is not the only option. If nuclear power was the only answer
Scientist today would not be working for solar and other forms of energy. Nuclear power remains only answer when there is no probability for any other sources.
