Global energy demands are increasing rapidly as the world populations continues to grow. We would thus need to look into clean energy sources as solutions for environmental protection, and to satisfy the needs of the people. Personally, as an advocate for renewable and nuclear energy, I believe that persuading the public to be more comfortable with nuclear energy would be extremely important. The Cold War, together with nuclear power plant incidents such as Chernobyl and Three Mile Island, has tarnished nuclear energy's reputation. However, to abandon such a powerful technology, such as nuclear energy, would be a waste. Instead of being fearful of nuclear, we should strive to improve its outdated technology, and teach the public about the positive aspects of nuclear power, and its immense potential. Being an active leader in science competitions, I have always found joy and excitement in tackling global issues. Researching on some of the most prevalent issues that contribute to climate change is something that I look forward to work towards, and I hope to continue fighting to protect Earth's grand yet vulnerable environmental.
