I am in a essay writing class and here is one of my essays.

Nuclear Power should still be used despite the risks. In today’s world we depend on energy to run our cars, heat our homes and power our computers. One of the biggest
energy sources is nuclear power. However, after the nuclear accident in Japan, everyone is having second thoughts about nuclear power. People saw first hand what could happen
if something went wrong. The devastation was tremendous. Nevertheless, nuclear
power should still be used in the US. If abandoned, the US’s economy would be
devastated because the price of energy would go up. This would hurt everyone from the producer to the consumer. Therefore, we should still use nuclear power. The danger of
nuclear power may be great, but the economic danger of not having it could be more devastating.
