Speech

 Some people say that nuclear power is very dangerous and bad for the environment but I think nuclear power generation is the most efficient way for power generation until we find other more efficient and eco-friendly way.
 Now the rising price of oil is a very serious problem and burning fossil fuel is highly polluting. If these things continue, it will have a detrimental effect on economy and environment and other renewable energy is still too inefficient and unreliable. Under the circumstances, we must reduce dependence on oil. Therefore nuclear power generation is the most efficient solution to a world energy crisis for now.
 Some people may say that it poses problems like a radiation leak and nuclear waste disposal, but the possible level of a radiation leak is negligible and there is actually a storage facility, like Yucca Mountain, that has been ready to receive nuclear waste and they will build more that kind of facilities. Moreover, like I said, other renewable energy is still too inefficient and unreliable. Consequently, nuclear power generation is the most efficient way for now.
 In conclusion, although it is not 100% safe and we have to find other more efficient and eco-friendly way, nuclear power generation is the most efficient way for now.
