Nuclear Power

  1. 1. Nuclear power<br /> By Kody Ta<br />
  2. 2. The Chernobyl Disaster <br />At 1:23 AM on April 26, 1986, two explosions broke through the Unit 4 reactor of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukraine <br />The area around the nuclear power plant was wrecked by the initial explosion<br />Buildings nearby were ignited by over heated graphite objects<br />Radioactive particles spread across the Ukraine, Belarus, the western part of Russia and later covered Europe and the whole Northern Hemisphere<br />
  3. 3. Nuclear Power Defined<br />According to encarta.msn.com-Power from nuclear fission or fusion: the power, usually electrical or motive power, produced by nuclear fission or fusion<br />
  4. 4. Thesis Statement<br />The Catholic Church opposes uranium mining even though nuclear power is becoming a highly used power alternative.<br />
  5. 5. Pros<br />Nuclear Power is “green” safe for the environment. <br />Uranium is a natural power alternative that doesn’t harm our atmosphere. <br />Uranium doesn’t pollute our air and our atmosphere because uranium turns into oxygenwhen burned.<br />Uranium is a very efficient power alternative and is one of the most popular power alternatives used around the world.<br />There is much uranium found all over the world today; therefore many nuclear power plants have large quantities in stored.<br />

  8. 8. Cons<br />The United States of America doesn’t invest on nuclear power plants and leads to more accidents.<br />About the majority of the nuclear power plants in Europe have more than 10 scientists watching over the power plants.<br />The United States hires about 7 scientists to watch over the nuclear power plants.<br />Having less than 10 scientists watching over the plant can be very dangerous and can lead to accidents<br />Many minor accidents occur because of simple mistakes because the United States of America doesn’t hire professional scientists in the field of physics.<br />
  9. 9. Religious Aspects<br />Nuclear power isn’t just a type of power alternative but can be used to make nuclear weapons to genetically harm others, therefore the Catholic Church opposes to nuclear warfare. <br />“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” The Holy Bible (Mt 5:9).<br />War does not make peace, but destruction and sadness. Peace can be made by making just judgment and putting our guns down.<br />
  10. 10. Religious Aspects Cont.<br />The Catholic Church does not want companies to mine uranium for the sake of mankind, but the church knows how uranium can be used for good and not evil.<br />That is why nuclear weapons can cause many conflicts and affect the people involved. <br />Nuclear energy can be used for good such as heating and other uses around a house.<br />
  11. 11. Definitive Statement<br />Nuclear power isn’t just a type of power alternative but can be used to make nuclear weapons to genetically harm others, therefore the Catholic Church opposes to nuclear warfare. <br />
  12. 12. The Chernobyl Disaster Cont.<br />The graphite continues to burn for days despite the fact that thousands of tons of boron carbide, lead, sand and clay were thrown over the core reactor by a helicopter<br />The fire eventually puts out itself when the core melted away, flowed into the lower part of the building and then turned into a solid, closing off the entrance<br />About 135,000 people were evacuated from a 30-km radius exclusion zone<br />Clean up took about 800,000 people<br />The radioactivity released was estimated to be about two hundred times that of the combined releases in the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki<br />Millions of people were exposed to the radiation many ways.<br />
