Hello, I’m Alexia
I think that nuclear energy is a good choice for governments to turn to as a solution. The disaster of Japan’s nuclear power plant in Fukushima was a warning to the rest of the world about the dangers of nuclear power plants. However after the disaster the Japanese government released a report on the crisis, which declared the disaster “man-made.” The report mentioned that some safety standards were not followed which if followed, would not have caused such a big crisis. I believe that since nuclear energy is that best clean renewable energy the world has right now we should use it but with precaution until another better renewable energy can be harnessed.
In Taiwan, there are about 6 nuclear power plants and there is more than 1 undergoing construction for use in the future. We also have a potential plan for geothermal plants in the future, which is an alternate plan for renewable energy. The benefits of nuclear power outweigh the dangers of it, especially since with new technology people can decrease the dangerous factors of using nuclear energy.

Hello, I’m Alexia
Hi everyone, I’m Jocelyn. I lived it Taipei, Taiwan. I’m studying at Dominican International School. In Taiwan, we have a law that you cannot simply throw the chemical waste into the river or sea, which will pollute the water, and also effect the environment, or you will need to pay some money for that. Also, people in Taiwan support recycle very well, we usually separate the trash into three main category: paper, aluminum can and glass, plastics, and others, and that’s a good thing that the people from the other country should do it too. But, there is another thing that I think the government should change, and stringent the laws. Taiwanese really love dogs, almost every family they had a dog, but, many people are not responsible for their dog’s faeces, whenever their dogs wanted to “go to the toilet”, they’ll just bring them to the street and let them “do it” there without cleaning up, that makes the environment become stinky.
Everyone is responsible for protecting the environment. We can choose to live in a healthy and comfortable environment, if we want to. Just do it!!! What are you waiting for? Take action now!
Hi, I am Angus Hsieh. I think we should keep the existing nuclear power plant. You cannot just shut down the nuclear power plants because the people’s house are based on the nuclear power plants. The disaster happened at nuclear power plants in Japan is a result of the tsunami that broke the cool down machine in nuclear power plants. The protecting of the nuclear power plant is only half of the tsunami. In Japan, there are many earthquake that cause the very big tsunami. However, in Taiwan, there aren’t many disaster, only earthquakes or typhoon. In addition, the cost of the nuclear power plant is very expensive, but it can produce a big amount of energy, so unit cost is cheaper. The unit cost of wind energy is expensive and it can’t produce enough energy for Taiwan. Although safety is more important than money, you can always use money to build a safer structure to protect the nuclear power plants. In conclusion, I strongly suggest to continue using the nuclear power plants.
Hi, my name is Hiro. I’m from Taipei, Taiwan. In Taiwan, we use mainly nuclear power, but in my opinion, nuclear power cannot be stopped. I acknowledge the dangerousness of nuclear power, especially after the disaster from our neighboring country, Japan. When people started to oppose nuclear power, a question came to me, “What next? Do we use fuel, coal, or solar power?”
If we use fuel or coal, we’re destroying the earth even faster, but on the other hand, if we make precautions and monitor the nuclear plants carefully, it may not be as lethal to the environment and the people.
You may think that we can just use wind, solar, or hydroelectric power, why use nuclear power? It is not impossible, but take Taipei for an example. Taipei is a densely populated city, it has almost 3,000,000 citizens. If we use any of those powers it would take forever to generate the energy needed even if we conserve energy. This is why I think nuclear power can’t be stopped.
Hi, I’m Eve, and come to speak of the environment, this is an issue that concerns many people, especially ongs and organizations, such as Greenpeace, Green Action, Edane, etc. struggling to improve our planet, fight:
+ against deforestation
+ to prevent the extinction of many species, both animals and plants.
And although such organizations exist, we can all put something of interest for our environment, and help keep it with small gestures, such as recycling paper, glass, organic products .. We can also use different light bulbs, consuming organic products, indigenous and seasonal, and multiple ideas more.
What savemos of our planet, based on the environment, there is still more than a small part given the atrocities committed incuviertamente, a clear example is this video, this is not just a music video, and was prohibited Published by the images it contained and displayed to the public, completely real.
please someone can answer me? telling his opinion on the environment? thank you very much.
During ww2 when the petrol was rationed the health of Swedish citizens increased. Because they couldn’t use their cars they had to walk or go by bike instead, and that really increased the health of Swedish citizens. I am not saying that we should ration petrol again but we should think of that if we go back to basics (more natural exercise, ecological food etc.) it doesn’t just help the environment but our bodies as well. In a time were people die from being too fat we should really think about these easy steps to be healthier. An idea could be that instead of giving children a public transportation card or have school busses they could be given bikes to go to school with together.
Hello, I am Hattaway.
I think talking about deforestation. I focus primarily on the Amazon although it is a very busy. Mainly I will say that in the lungs of the Earth, the Amazon contains a total of seven million hectares. According to Greenpeace, 5 acres are cleared per minute in the Amazon. The day should be about 7,200 acres per year would become 2.628 million hectares. Although the figures say that in one year only 1,323,924 hectares have been cleared without illegal parties. Reforestation comes to the point that the area could be harvested from the Amazon that is equal to the area of Spain.
These data are chilling because if echáramos accounts, we would see that soon the Amazon, at this rate, it would be like a desert. Not to mention that not supporting recovery actions logging, since it is too expensive.
Good morning, Hattaway
Hi! I am from Hong Kong. In such a busy city, no one has taken considerable time to think about CO2. Even now it is Autum, there is still many people having their air conditioners on… at home, at school, at work… Everyone would like to spend longer time stay awake to do their business. There is no room for them to think about the environment.
Good morning every one! The subject of the deforestation, is something which affects me a lot cause trees are also alive and we had to take care of this biodiversity. Let’s take an exemple , In the bresil, we cultivate of numerous bit just for fields and it’s really bad , cause trees are important We would be lacking of cO2 without them and more bit decreases more the air will be missing, and the fauna and the flora will decrease. Here in france we take really care of the bit , beacause it’s really necessary . We should make video, actions, demonstration for reduice these deforestations perms which degrade our earth.
Deforestation usually happens because large corporations need the trees to mass produce something. Deforestation takes away homes of many species. There are many that eventually extinct since they are not able to survive. I watched a video in AP Bio and not only do wild animals live there, but people still do as well. Examples of people still living in this kind of environment are in Brazil and New Guinea. These people could be largely affected by deforestation.The video was called Jungles: People of the Trees
