One student, in Illinois, asked "im writing a paper on why nuclear power plants are bad but im having trouble stating my points can you help me." I'd have to start by teaching him/her to write "I'm" instead of "im." Next, use a question mark.So I decided to write a little sample persuasive essay.
High Quantities Nuclear reaction releases a million times more energy, as compared to hydro or wind energy.
Large quantity of energy is generated from a single nuclear power plant.
I thought this might be useful for those who are looking to find out how to structure a persuasive essay. You put in some of the arguments for your thesis; you put in some of the arguments against your thesis; and then you explain why the for arguments are better than the against arguments.
Read through the sample persuasive essay to see how I do this.
I've had two inquiries recently through my form for asking questions about essays.
Here are some ideas for other persuasive essay topics.Nuclear weapons are a major threat to the world as they can cause a large-scale devastation.High Capital Intensive Nuclear Plants require a high level of technology and a major initial capital investment. Long Gestation Period It takes a long time to build, about 15-20 years to develop a single plant.Whereas, oil reserves and other fossil type fuels are likely to run out shortly.Reliability Nuclear power plants operate reliably and have a continuous output of power.Nuclear power is generated using Uranium, a mineral of which one of the isotopes, U- 234 is unstable.The nucleus breaks down resulting in the emission of heat and radiation followed by a chain reaction.Though in France, 80% of its electricity production is from nuclear energy and more than one-fourth of electricity in Europe comes from nuclear energy.Nuclear energy represents a very small percentage in many countries’ total electricity production, but this percentage is likely to go up in the coming years.This is called nuclear fission and this process liberates a large amount of energy, but the process also releases radiation which is very dangerous. Clean Energy Nuclear energy has the ability to produce electricity without greenhouse gas emissions. It is cleaner than many other forms of energy production.Essentially, nuclear power would be “carbon-zero” if the uranium were mined and transported in a more efficient way.
