Fossil Fuels Nuclear Energy
520 wordsThe question of energy use in the world is one which posses many conflicting views. There are so many different arguments that my personal view is one that changes with every article I read. In the most recent readings regarding nuclear power and its pros and cons I have been led to the opinion that nuclear energy is necessary to the survival of a world that has an increasing need for energy. The worlds fossil fuels will eventually diminish or become way too expensive due to supply and demand. I...

1,926 wordsIn 1986, the head of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission gave this statement. Even if there was this type of accident every year I would consider nuclear power a valid source of energy. The statement came from the man responsible for the safety of nuclear power plants throughout the United States following the Chernobyl accident, which was the worst nuclear accident in the world so far (Hodgson and Marignne 5). Nuclear Energy came into use in 1953. Rather simply, when one of the atoms of fuel in a...

Acid rain is also a side effect to burning coal. It can affect everything from crop growth to damaging fish in lakes and rivers. So you have to ask yourself, is coal environmentally safe? If not, what is? Maybe oil would be the suitable solution to Americas energy crisis. Along with coal, oil has to be burnt to produce elect...

Nuclear Energy Nuclear Power
732 wordsIn this essay I am going to discuss Rutherford's impact on science and nuclear energy. Also share some of my opinions about the usage of nuclear power. Ernest Rutherford was a physicist and a Nobel Prize winner in chemistry. He became known as the father of nuclear physics. He is best known for being the first man to split the atom and the discovery of the proton. Another important fact about Rutherford's scientific career was that he mentored 9 students who went onto win Nobel Prizes later on i...

1,199 wordsThousands of years ago human beings learned to make fire. By collecting and burning wood they were able to warm themselves, cook food, and manufacture primitive tools. Later, the Egyptians discovered the principal of the sail. Even more recent was the invention of the water wheel. All of these activities utilize various forms of energy-biological, chemical, solar, and hydraulic. Energy, the ability to do work, is essential for meeting basic human needs, extending the life expectancy, and providi...

244 wordsNuclear Energy should be produced because it is an alternative to fossil fuel. Nuclear energy helps to conserve our national resources that we use as fuel such as coil, oil, and natural gas. Another pro of nuclear energy is that radiation that is given off by nuclear energy is mostly thought of a very dangerous thing but it can be used in positive ways too. For example, if you break a bone a doctor can inject a radioactive phosphorous compound, which is a compound that concentrates on active gro...
