Is nuclear Power an old technology
Nuclear technology , one of the fastest growing methodology for power generation or methodology of Mass destruction. This will always remain matter of discussion as every technology has its own repercussion and same with Nuclear Technology . Now when whole world is in need of more and more cheap source of energy for its growth and development there is also need of keeping our environment clean.
There has been two greatest inventions of man kind
Donot you think soon , this statement will loose its relevance , I do understand its difficult to think world without these two but to understand in better way , we need to go little deep in this and a step backward
why do we need wheel?
I think , to cover distance . Then do we really need wheels when we have rockets , now what is left just to control our rocket or helicopter more easily. I think science will achieve this within coming 25 years and will compress Helicopter in suites and cloth. Its just matter of time to bring down cost of manufacturing and wheels will be Matter of Passe.
Now Fire : Although consequence of fire after invention has been equally Good and Bad has taken as many lives as it has fed , atleast if we include after death procedures then it will be equal. In short if fire would have only the good consequences as like that of wheel or at least we could decrease casualties due to fire without minimizing its ill effect. Can we change property of fire. Probably as of now not , but if we could then it would have been great , is not it. After all we have done this with Iron , Carbon etc. May be sometimes in future we can.
Now let us come to Nuclear energy , why did we need nuclear energy?
When we lit fire first time , we had no knowledge of its ill effect and harm to environment as combustion and emission of gases. By the time we came to know its ill effects , we were got to know that More efficient your fuel is more hazardous it is for human civilization
Water mills are least efficient in terms of there production and thus they are no threat to environment as whole but a thermal power plant any where on earth is like a pin which you have stuck in your self to hang yourself like photo frame.
Now you fossil fuels are more efficient but they are like strong nail at place of which gives you more pain as well with emission of carbon mono oxide
So is case with Nuclear technology , Its like a nail , which will definetly give more balance but has more risk of wiping out civilization or human race as whole.
Now people will argue that , with fear of ill effects , we can not stop using the technology , we can not change property of fire as of now but till then we can minimize its usage.
Thank God we could avoid Fukushima , Suppose , those few brave people would have gone unsuccessful . Whom you would have made responsible.
When we got better technology then why not to shift there , when risk with Nuclear technology is high and on top of that , we have more better and conventional sources under our ocean then why not to invest there. Why we are busy in paying for the R&D efforts of developed countries. After all there this technology is passe , now energy can be created from thermal heat of earth and even bio coals which is our human excreta.
After all Pager , phased out without reaching to mass because technology got advance and people got Mobile. It was loss to companies who invested in Pager technology but It was for better of Human society .
Investors of Nuclear technology are still fighting to keep it alive just on name of producing energy one can test of Nuclear Bomb as well.
We have got better technologies , so we need to use them and just phase out Nuclear energy.
May Nuclear Technology rest in peace
