Quite often, when states go to war, they seek to use nuclear weapons for military purposes and uphold their interests by safeguarding their security.
This is done to quell other countries from seeking nuclear weapons and strengthen the security prone areas instead of encouraging the adoption of nuclear power.
In this speech, I will expound on the reasons as to why nuclear energy is better than solar power.
Today, over 85% of the global electricity is produced using fossil fuels as high costs of oil necessitate the need for the demand for more energy.
With little amount of uranium a great amount of energy can be produced.
It is a reliable source to rely on as there is significant amount of it on the Earth’s crust.Another fundamental reason why I advocate the use of nuclear energy is that it produces numerous benefits as compared to other sources of energy.For instance, the use of hydroelectric power can be greatly harmful to the population and cause environmental damage.Therefore, the opponents of nuclear sources of energy argue that the continual use of radioactive materials to produce nuclear energy is deadly to the human population and the environment.However, the proper use of nuclear energy has numerous and significant security benefits.The most significant reason that makes nuclear energy preferable to solar energy is that it is clean and does not produce gaseous emissions that may be harmful to the environment.For example, nuclear energy does not emit any sulfur, toxic or greenhouse gases that may be disastrous to the environment.One important advantage is that producing energy using Nuclear power does not give off greenhouse gases.Green house gases are gases like carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide which are contributing to the greenhouse effect or global warming.This example provides a clear indication that whereas solar energy is free, it may be costly in the long run in terms of buying the solar panels and installation equipments (Falk 345).Besides, the transparency within the nuclear industry has made it highly attractive.
