Securing a long-term waste repository and transferring fuel currently held in the cooling pools strike cast is essential for long-term public safety. (Nuclear Power, 2017) Furthermore, to change or convert our current energy source to more renewable stores in the area that I live in would probably take a great deal. You have to take into account the financial aspect of the residents here in this area. The residents of New York vary from your low income to middle-class. Most of the homes in my area are apartment buildings so solar powered energy is pretty much out. Then you have for me, which is quite large in scale, and you they use a lot of energy for different things that are not energy-efficient at all. I believe it would take a lot of business is in the area to donate to your low income areas. The materials needed to convert their homes to solar powered, and the willingness of the residents to actually change what they are to use to. This would be a very large scale project that would take no less than 10 years to accomplish.

    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.
