I can also get on I-05 and go through the 710 and have to drive 1 mile locally then get to my destination. Lastly, I can get on I-05, take and exit into Compton, drive through 2 miles locally, then get on the 710, and take an exit off to downtown Los Angeles.

Although this route is efficient, it is very risky. This route is comparable to Nuclear energy. People choose nuclear energy for similar reasons as to why one may choose the Compton route to Downtown Los Angeles. Nuclear energy is more efficient and has a greater power output than its counterparts, but it involves great risk. The risks involved with nuclear energy are much greater than the risks involved with the dangerous Compton route. Even though we are offered many different paths when it comes to energy creation (energy…
