Nuclear energy is radioactive. When it explodes it destroys everything around it. Radioactivity hits you like trillions of mini bullets but you cannot feel it. The radiation can make you sick. Many people who get touched by radiation get cancer. Marie Curie died from blood cancer because she was exposed to so much radioactivity. Also, pregnant mothers exposed to low amounts of radioactivity can have had abnormal babies and births.
Nuclear plants aren’t safe. Natural disasters can cause nuclear plants to explode, like what happened in the Fukushima and Daiichi nuclear disaster. Terrorists can attack nuclear plants to cause a lot of damage. It might be hard for them, but it could still happen, and it would cause a lot of damage.
Nuclear plants create toxic waste. It is very hard to get rid of. People usually bury it under mountains in nuclear waste sites, but it stays dangerous for thousands of years. In the future, people might find a way to make it safe with lasers or by throwing it into the sun, but right now it isn’t safe.
For these reasons, I think people should agree that nuclear energy is bad.
I read a book called 'What Can We Do to Help Endangered Animals?' Suzanne Slade wrote the book. This book is about why some animals are so endangered. The books show some of the millions of wonderful animals that are becoming extinct.
The main topic of the books is which animals are in danger. The books says that most of the animals are endangered because people kill them and their friends. Even if they don't all die, with give them such a bad life. If we aren't careful, one day, all the animals will die.
I liked this book because it gave me lots of information about animals. Can I tell you one thing? Get this book! It is so important!
Anyone who loves animals will enjoy reading this book.
