EXAMPLE OF ESSAY FOR WRITING: TASK TWO
Nuclear technology was an important invention in the 19th century and indeed brings people a lot of benefits and convenience. However, different opinions of this new technology has resulted in controversy. So, it's important to further analyse this issue.
It could be argued that nuclear technology is more economical than other energy. Without over-exploiting natural resources, nuclear technology can help generate tons of power to supply a large area. As a result, the ecological environment might be conserved. Secondly, nuclear technology can boost a nation's economy by nuclear-related construction projects. For example, building a nuclear power station will involve plenty of companies and labor in this project. Thirdly, other technologies may benefit from nuclear technology. Since nuclear technology is a complicated field, it requires other advanced technologies to correlate. Then, it's likely to offer some businesses to take part.
On the other hand, some people argue that nuclear technology is a potential danger. Though it's cheap, it might cause great damage to the people and environment if it were not well maintained. Additionally, there is still no absolutely safe way to deal with the nuclear waste. Nuclear waste cannot be put away underground for ever. If people can't think of a safe way to handle this problem, future generations may be in danger. Finally, nuclear materials still pollute the environment. Many people have died from the pollution. Without good management of nuclear power stations we cannot live safely and carefree.
In my opinion, there should be other alternative ways to generate power. For the next generation's sake it is better to come up with other advanced technology to take the place of this one. Thus, we can all live in a carefree and non-polluted world.
