Nuclear CCC Report (Draft outline)
[Intro]
With the recent news that Singapore might be building a nuclear power plant, Citizens' Consultative Committee (CCCs) are in favour of encouraging the public to support the build of nuclear power plant. CCCs are at the apex of all grassroots organisation. A vital bridge between the people and the Government, we plan and lead major grassroots activities. In this case, we aim to educate elderly, homemakers and primary students, raising their awareness of nuclear power. And also, to clear their doubts and fear of nuclear energy.
[Problem]
One biggest barrier which obstruct the public from supporting nuclear power plant is the exaggeration of nuclear energy from media such as nuclear related Sci-Fi films and the recent Japan nuclear crisis. (Data on films and Japan news...........films/comics affect kids, others affect adult) Due to the overstated cons of nuclear energy, people draw back the idea of building nuclear plant, so that they would not put their lives at stake. However, the actual positive effects of nuclear energy far more outweigh it's negative impacts on people. Thus, it is CCCs' responsibility to transform general public's false impression on nuclear and inculcate them with the right knowledge. This way, people will have the correct judgment when it comes to nuclear energy.
[Pros of nuclear energy]
First and foremost, we got to address public's concern and inform them the variety of pros regarding nuclear energy. ( Support with evi)
(Disadvantages of other natural resources)
[Plans, How are they beneficial] (Media part)
In a High-Tech society like Singapore, mass media has a profound influence on people of all ages and from different works of life. Considering the effectiveness of media outreach, we have come out with serval plans to raise people's awareness. (Plans and explanations)
[Conclusion]

    Global nuclear power plants and its industry have been a high expense for government subsidies,tax credit, or any form of public support in favor of the industry. A half century later, we have noticed that nuclear power is, instead, too expensive to finance. The first generation of nuclear power plants proved so costly to build that half of them were abandoned during construction. In addition , huge cost overruns are discovered which were passed on to utility customers…

    Nuclear energy is one of the hottest topics in the fight to a cleaner world. The number of people who believe that nuclear energy is too dangerous and unhealthy for the earth has skyrocketed because of the nuclear accidents that have happened in the past and recently. These protesters may have a lot of evidence and theories about how bad this type of energy can be, but the people who have realized that nuclear energy is the way to a cleaner and more “Green” society have proof and facts that overrule anything that the protesters say.…

    The cost of power plants, along with the potential dangers of nuclear energy, tends to repel people from converting to the energy source. Constructing, equipping, engineering and providing labor for power plants can cost billions of dollars. The waste left behind from the energy is extremely hazardous and difficult to dispose of. Although the possibility is very slim, there’s a chance for nuclear accidents to occur in the power plants. However, these problems have solutions and nuclear energy still poses a great alternative energy source that could benefit…

    I will discuss the pros of this article. To begin, this article states that nuclear power is an economical, safe and clean form of energy. Unlike fossil fuel plants, which spew tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere each year, nuclear power plants don't produce smoke. Nuclear power is considered carbon-free and produces more electricity than other renewables like solar and wind. Proponents of nuclear power often measure its economic prowess in kilowatts. Nuclear power plants produce more kilowatts than coal, wind or solar for fewer cents. As more plants are built, it's expected that construction costs will come down, making the price of nuclear-generated electricity that much more attractive. Millions of people in poorer countries have limited access to reliable sources of electricity. For starters, developing countries with nuclear power plants wouldn't have to rely on expensive fossil fuels that emit large volumes of carbon dioxide. Second, global interest in investing in nuclear power is high, providing the potential to pump money into emerging economies and create jobs. Nuclear power plants use large volumes of water for heating and cooling. One square mile (2.6 square kilometers) of water 14 feet (4.2 meters) deep goes through a typical two-unit reactor every day. Nuclear plants use preventative measures like stationary screens to prevent adult fish from being sucked into cooling water systems!…

    Energy crisis has become one of the major problem all over the world, Especially the developed world needs more energy, countries like USA, consumes 5times more energy than the rest of the world, however the developing countries like India and China are also in raise of energy consumptions, and these consumptions will increase. Even though fossil fuels were satisfying the people needs all these years, the emissions from it, called the green house gasses results in Global Warming, which has become a serious threat to the environment. Despite the fact that renewable energy from natural resources like sunlight, heat, tide, wind which are much safer to the environment, they can satisfy only 18 to 20% of the total energy needs. So the need for an efficient alternative for energy is on high demand. Nuclear power is being promoted as the preeminent substitute for fossil fuel and considered as the future of energy needs. In this essay we are going to analyse how it is feasible to the environment and to the people. First and foremost when considering the growing need of energy and environment, nuclear power will be the best option to choose among the available options. Nuclear is achieved by two processes, fission (splitting) and fusion (merging together) of nuclei of atoms. This process releases huge amount of heat energy, which is then converted into electricity, for example, it can produce 10million times more energy than burning of one fossil atom, which also need hectares of land with solar energy or equalant source of energy. The nuclear energy development which all started at a slow phase in 1950s with demonstration plants, moved to a different phase by the beginning of commercial nuclear power plants which were started by 1960s. However by the end of 1970, 30 to 40 nuclear plants were being manufactured and this continues each and every year. It is being predicted that Unites States will be running more than one thousand nuclear power plants by the end of the…

    Many professors, scientists, researchers, and even governments, have been debating over the issue on the use of nuclear power as a main energy source. In Taking Sides, two authors who are highly narrow-minded state their debates on this critical issue. Allison MacFarlane, author of “Nuclear Power: Panacea for Future Energy Needs?”, believes that nuclear power should be revived. She argues that nuclear power will provide sufficient energy, while at the same time reducing carbon dioxide emissions. On the other hand, professor Kristin Shrader-Frechette, author of “Five Myths About Nuclear Energy”, argues that nuclear power is too expensive and unsafe for the environment, when there are renewable energy sources that are better for the environment and economy. I agree with Shrader-Frechette because she proves the five myths about nuclear energy wrong using extremely valid arguments, which exist to prove that nuclear power is not the best option for an energy source in our society.…
