ABSTRACT
The author argues that people need nuclear energy. He discusses the advantages and disadvantages of other alternative energy sources including oil, natural gas, coal, wind, and solar. He mentions that people like nuclear energy because as of May 2011, they are still using nuclear technology that was built and designed in the 1970s. The author stresses the use of electricity in cars in trucks, data storage and people's device addiction.
