The concerns about climate change have been growing and a need for a solution has become a necessity. Nuclear Energy’s contribution is greatly needed and it has to be step-upped. More Nuclear energy is needed to reduce the dependance on Fossil Fuels. This essay discusses some of the advantages and disadvantages of Nuclear Energy. 15% of the energy used worldwide is from Nuclear Energy.
There is currently a few alternative resources lined-up but the most promising for fossil fuels to pass the torch to seem to be nuclear energy. However, it remains to be seen whether nuclear energy is the answer to the world energy crisis. There are many reasons to consider nuclear energy over fossil fuel, Environmental issues being the biggest. Global warming is still in effect and is ever-increasing at a fast rate. Fossil Fuels are the prime source of greenhouse gases.
As the years fly by, and the economy keeps advancing, more and more various types are being produced and sold to the world. But what are the hazards as technology and the economy advances? Officials are contemplating on whether gasoline vehicles should be replaced completely, or replaced in places like large cities where greenhouse gases and gasoline vehicles are abundant. Although gasoline vehicles can be more convenient in some scenarios, electric cars are a better alternative. Historically, electric vehicles were always a thought, but always put to the side because they weren’t as convenient at the time.
Currently, fossil fuels are consumed faster than they are being produced, so these resources may become rare, and the price may increase becoming inaccessible for most of the population. In today’s world the pollution of the atmosphere is one of our main fears; therefore an option such as nuclear energy is definitely preferable than burning fossil fuels that causes a great amount of pollution. Nuclear energy by far has the lowest impact on the environment as reported in 1998 that, the calculated emission of greenhouse gas has reduced for nearly half due to the admiration of nuclear power around the world. On top of that there are no opposing effects on the water, land or any environments due to the use of nuclear energy. The production of electricity is continuous.
Air conditioners, electric cars, televisions, computers—they all have one thing in common. They all consume electricity. As our consumption of electronic gadgets increase, we are depleting Earth’s natural resources at a rate faster than it can replenish. As a result, engineers and scientists have come up with a solution to this issue, albeit with much controversy. Nuclear energy, one of the biggest breakthrough in technological and scientific advancement, is a highly eyed upon solution by many authorities and governments to implement this technology to provide electricity to the masses.
In the world today, there is a constant debate on what to do about the growing issue of global warming. Ultimately, the issue can be correlated with the production of energy using nonrenewable resources, fossil fuels. Countless companies have made an effort to make the world ‘cleaner’, by using innovative and contemporary processes of creating energy. Energy sources have sprouted up in morals of creating energy efficiently and does not provide any harmful effects on the environment. One of these various sources of new energy is Nuclear Energy.
The fission energy has many benefits such as no pollution, lower cost, and proven technology. One of the biggest causes of environmental pollution is fossil fuels, which emit tons of carbon dioxide and other harmful chemicals. This in turn can harm the environment and even the health of people. This is not the case for nuclear fission. Nuclear power plants use relatively small amounts of fossil fuels in their operations, while producing a large amount of fission energy.
The most importantly this is the biggest part of nuclear that generating constant and huge amount of electricity. It is totally clean way to produce energy as it does not result in the emission of any of the poisonous gases. According to the Benefits Of Nuclear Power, there are carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide or nitrogen dioxide are not generated in the process of nuclear producing system. In this day, the world worry about environmental pollution of the atmosphere and it is the main worries. Using nuclear to produce energy is preferable compared to other system burning of fossil fuels, which causes so much of pollution with carbon dioxide.
Over the past couple decades nuclear power plants have become a more prominent sight within our countries great rolling landscapes. With the improving technology and the search for an alternative energy source, this topic is much overdue. Due to the depleting coal and natural gas supply the time is now to look to nuclear energy. To become the dominant supplier of energy to the world 's citizens. Like all the other forms of alternative energy there is a required force that needs to be present in able to produce energy.
Unlike many other kinds of resources, its generation process uses directly natural water which does not run out quickly or raise in prices. Additionally, hydroenergy can be considered safe when being generated since it only involves water instead of other fuels. Comparing to nuclear power, hydropower does not require safety regulations or raise concerns among the public about its threats to the environment. What is more, hydroelectric power plants are claimed to require low operating cost as there are only a few parts in the process while the water can be stored in the dams for years or be used for irrigation and recreational purposes. Nevertheless, hydroenergy operation can lead to environmentally damaging consequences due to the fact that it requires damming
