I'll take the PRO position, that nuclear energy is safer then fossil fuels. CON will have to show that fossil fuels are safer then nuclear energy.
safe = not likely to cause harm or lost.
fossil fuels = a natural fuel such as coal or gas, formed in the geological past from the remains of living organisms. (especially when used in a power plant)
nuclear energy = the energy released during nuclear fission or fusion, especially when used to generate electricity.
If someone wants use different definitions, then they have to make it clear before the debate, and I have to agree with them.
- Nuclear energy causes less deaths
- Nuclear energy produces less waste
However, nuclear power plants of the world are vulnerable to the terrorist attack. So, they are not safer from the national security point of view
the challenge that concerns me the most is the cybersecurity vulnerabilities of critical infrastructure and democratic institutions from external state and nongovernmental actors
if a nuclear weapon exploded in a major city, the blast center would be hotter than the surface of the sun, tornado-strength winds would spread the flames; and a million or more people could die.
the policy which was introduced to prevent the spread of Coronavirus-19 pandemic in Italycontributed to reducing the air pollution.
Therefore, I believe that after the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic fossil fuels create less waste than before.
“ with the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic, new way of thinking toward life and society has emerged.Look-down of big cities, tell-work and restriction of the movement of people on a global scale have taught many people of the world that the life and society which are less-dependent on fossil fuels contributes to mitigating global warming. the important thing is that reasonable and efficient use of fossil fuels are not harmful not only on the environment but on the health of human beings. “
“ global scale contributes to shifting our attention to the importance and urgency of using less fossil energy. This is penetrating not only into the general public but into business world very deeply. “
“ The important thing is that we are experiencing an emerging new normal that may not look much like the pre-pandemic world. “
“I always prepare for unprecedented heavy rain and unusual typhoon threatening our life. Central and local government are urgently required to introduce measures to reduce the effects of natural disasters which take place so often in many parts of the world these days. Renovating the aging road and buildings is the urgent task which they must tackle to eliminate the effects of natural disaster.”
"a broad theme is to press corporations across sectors, from oil and transport to food and drink, to detailhow they plan to reduce their carbon footprints in coming years, in line with government pledges to cut emissions to net zero by 2050."
"another approach for reducing emissions from fossil fuels is to capture the carbon dioxide and store it underground in deep geological formation, a technique known as carbon capture and sequestration."
"The important thing is that stop using fossil fuels may lead to deprive of the vitality and the path to stable growth of world economy"
