So a single tragedy means we demonize an entire industry? That seems somewhat stupid.

That's one study with several contradicting it. And from what I gathered it was a weak link, something along the lines of "well there were more deaths than usual after Fukushima." Not "these deaths were all due to radiation poisoning."

Nuclear Power is the only Real, viable Green, Semi-renewable, with ZERO C02 output energy source...

So what wrong with Nuclear power that is run in a safe efficient, controlled mannor again?

more people will die getting hit by coal trains in one year than all the deaths from nuclear accidents combined

more people will develop cancers due to the pollutants released by coal plants than nuclear plants ever will cause

more people will die in coal mining accidents than in uranium mining accidents

and Hiroshima and Nagasaki were nuclear bombs, not nuclear power plants.

A few parents beat their kids, therefore every parent must be a monster. Right?

You have astounding logic.

More people have been killed on American highways then all the nuclear accidents combined...

List of motor vehicle deaths in U.S. by year - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nagasaki and Hiroshima were not accidents, what eco-terrorist rag did you read that in?

Hello modeerf and all.

This and add the number of descendants of so called Native Americans in reservations across the American West whose fellow citizens' political activity in this country is sleeping on this matter when it comes to nuclear hazards even before the newsbreaking events of Fukushima.

Every one counts
in nuclear matters since nuclear radiation knows no borders and the men behind it have the same mindset (global economy).

Let me explain.

Reservations about Toxic Waste: Native American Tribes Encouraged to Turn Down Lucrative Hazardous Disposal Deals: Scientific American

Besides Bill Gates, one of these men, apparently continue to generate powerful ideas that seem logical even with such information present or accessible on the Internet.

Link: //www.city-data.com/forum/scien...l#post22016548

This link is a substitution: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...PmuO_blog.html

But as Bill Gates stated in 1993, "The Internet? We are not interested in it"


Also Bill Gates said this too, Life is not fair, get used to it.

and

I do think this next century, hopefully, will be about a more global view. Where you don't just think, yes my country is doing well, but you think about the world at large.


Hey Bill Gates I know what your thinking.

That's my thoughts on this matter.
