nuclear energy is better than our current energy system
Debate Rounds (3)
other nations are having a lot of success with this technology and will have a leg up over us.
I will attack my opponent's points then give some of my own.
My opponent talks about how much we have advanced since Chernobyl. But we cane ver be sure. Chernobyl was a horrible tragedy that has left lasting effects to this day on soil. In places like Belgium where they were hardly hit the ground is still not farmable. People got cancer from this horrible tragedy and animals were lost. We might say we are ready but we can never be truly ready. We never know when another Chernobyl might happen and leave a lasting stain on the Earth. Nuclear is just to big of a risk.
I will now observe the rather broad resolution in where he stated "the current system". The current system is filled with several energy sources. We have every thing from oil to natural gas to hydroelectricity. The current system is an efficient system. It gets gas in our cars and allows us to live the lifestyle we do today. So when he states "the current system". We see a great system. Solar and wind are coming along as cheap alternatives. Gas and Coal and Natural gas has helped for a long time. We can't say "the current system" and see some horrible world. We sat "the current system and we see a futuristic system looking to lower pollution and benefit society.
the current system involves the potential for alternative energy, as a stretch. it in fact involvves millions of deaths per year from air pollution and oil spills and other calamities
We can't truly be ready for such a calamity. Our current system allows for a diverse portfolio of efficient energy methods. Wind and solar both are becoming more common.
Wind and Solar are both clean, little to no pollution energy sources. Nuclear is risky and can be catastrophic to the environment and human health.
this debate was about the 'current system' which clearly is oil v nuclear with a focus. con is tryin to switch it to alternatve
