I have been honing my essay writing skills to prepare for an English proficiency test that will be held the first week of June. Would you please correct my essay below? I would be grateful if you could show me more proper ways to express my opinion.
Today's topic is the abolition of the nuclear power plants. This topic has been very popular at high school debate classes for over 20 years. Japanese students have been discussing over this issue for a long time, but it has not encouraged to form public opinion that leads Japan to abolition of nuclear power plants. We still consume electricity produced by nuclear power plants in the remote areas from big cities. Also, those areas are accepting the radioactive waste.

[Topic] Should Japan move toward shutting down nuclear power plants?

My answer: I think that Japan should move toward shutting down nuclear power plants for the following two reasons.
First, the modern technology has not yet been able to solve the problem of the radioactive waste. The hazardous waste is now laid underground in the remote areas far from the bigger cities, such as Tokyo, Osaka or Nagoya. Those local areas in question have been accepting the dangerous substances in exchange of the subsidy. It reflects the Japanese society's flaw, that is, the indifference of those who are living in big cities, including politicians, to other areas. Big cities consume the substantial amount of electricity. Therefore, we all should take this problem serious. You should not irresponsibly pass the waste from the nuclear power plants to other districts, but seek a way out of the nuclear power generation.
Second, after the earthquake that attacked the Tohoku area in 2011, Japan has learned how severely a nuclear power plant accident can impact to the society. It has not been the problem of Japan only any longer but a global issue. There is no other way but to switch to safer renewable energy.
For these reasons, I think that Japan should move toward shutting down nuclear power plants.

I started to worry that I haven't got my exam admission ticket. I am not sure that there was not any mistake with my procedure on application.
