Maya Angelou once said “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” It is with these words in mind that I must take the affirmative side of our resolution: Resolved “Countries ought to prohibit the production of nuclear power.” Contention One: Waste sites still cause groundwater pollution. In 2008, Benjamin K. Sovacool and Christopher Cooper said in Nuclear Nonsense: Why Nuclear Power is No Answer to Climate Change and the World's Post-Kyoto Energy Challenges “The main concern is "groundwater seeping into the repository, corrosion of waste containers, leaching of radionuclides,” which can seep into water used for agricultural purposes and get into food supplies, or seep to drinking water. Contention Two: Increase in nuclear power increases nuclear weapons. Physicians for Social Responsibility stated in Dirty, Dangerous and Expensive: The Truth about Nuclear Power “The same process used to manufacture low-enriched uranium for nuclear fuel also can be employed for the production of highly enriched uranium for nuclear weapons.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
