It is often claimed that nuclear energy is something we cannot do without. We live in a consumer society where there is an enormous demand for commercial products of all kinds. Moreover. an increase in industrialproduction is considered to be one solution to the problem of mass unemployment. Such an increase presumesan abundant and cheap energy supply. Many people believe that nuclear energy provides an inexhaustible andeconomical source of power and chat it is therefore essential for an industrially developing society. There are a number of other advantages in the use of nuclear energy. Firstly, nuclear power. except for accidents, is clean. A further advantage is that a nuclear power station can be run and maintained by relativelyfew technical and administrative staff. The nuclear reactor represents an enormous step in our scientific evolution and, whatever the anti-nuclear group says, it is wrong to expect a return to more primitive sources of fuel. However, opponents of nuclear energy point out that nuclear power stations bring a direct threat not only to the environment but also to civil liberties.
Furthermore, it is questionable whether ultimately nuclear power is a cheap source of energy. There have. for example. been very costly accidents in America, in Britain and, of course. in Russia. The possibility of increases in the cost of uranium(铀) in addition to the cost of greater safety provisions could price nuclear power out of the market. In the long run, environmentalists argue, nuclear energy wastes valuable resources and disturbs the ecology to an extent which could bring about the destruction of the human race. Thus, if we wish to survive. we cannot afford nuclear energy. In spice of the case against nuclear energy outlined above. nuclear energy programmes are expanding. Such an expansion assumes a continual growth in industrial production and consumer demands. However, it is doubtful whether this growth will or can continue Having weighed up the arguments on both sides, it seems there are good economic and ecological reasons for sources of energy other than nuclear power.

答案:
1.作者对于核能的看法是____。
A)漠然的
B)容忍的
C)赞成的
D)否定的
[D]从文章首段第1句、第2段第1句,尤其是第2段末句,可以看出,作者对核能持否定的态度,D正确。
2.反对核能的人认为核能是________________。
A)原始的
B)便宜的
C)会枯竭的
D)不安全的
[D]首段末句提到,核能反对者认为核电站不仅对环境,而且对公民自由都是一种直接的威胁,即核能不安全,D正确。B是支持使用核能者的观点,而非作者的观点。
3.一些人声称核能是很重要的,因为_______________。
A)它为大规模失业问题提供了一个完美的解决方案
B)它代表了科学革命迈向前方的一大步
C)它可以满足工业发展社会不断增加的需求
D)核电站可以由相对少量的技求人员和管理人员所控制和维护
[C]首段第5句提到,许多人认为核能报重要,因为它是社会工业发展所必需的,可以提供取之不尽且便宜的能源,C正确。解决大规模失业问题的一个途径是提高工业生产,而不是核能,因此A错。C、D是支持使用核能者认为的核能的优点,与题干不构成因果关系,由此可排除。
4.作者会支持下列哪一种说法?
A)对商业产品的需求不一定会不断上升。
B)核能是我们一定需要的东西。
C)铀是一种很好的能源,有着经济和生态价值。
D)更好的安全条款可以带来更多的核能项目。
[A]第2段倒数第2、3句提到,核能开发计划的扩大以工业生产和消费需求的继续增长为前提。但是,这种增长是否能够持续,这令人怀疑,可见A正确。B是支持使用核能者的观点。第2段提到,铀的成本有可能提高,加上安全防范设施需要投入巨大成本,会使核能的价格超出市场承受能力,由此可同时排除C、D。
5.最后一句话的作用是______________。
A)推进最后的论点
B)反应了作者的态度
C)****了之前的想法
D)显示出核能的弊端
[B]文章最后一句表明了作者的观点,即作者认为从经济和生态环境方面来考虑。可以利用其他形式的能源,而非核能,B正确。
