We should just build a big reactor inside the mountains. Then if it exploded(which is wouldn't because pebble reactor) it would not effect anybody. Put it in a dry mountain.
FIrst thing you still have the tree huggers and the problem with environmental stigma. A Mountain might contain a meltdown, but you have to remember that a meltdown can get up to many hundred thousands of Degrees F. Also, that heat rises, and would probably melt the mountain down. If the mass of the reactor is large enough.
