Nuclear is safe

  1. Mar 11, 2004 #1
    1) Churnobyl was NOT even close to what a typical nuclear reactor is like.
    2)Reactors never go Nuclear Bomb, it is impossable
    3)all reactors in service today would never melt down to the point of getting to the ground water, or even the ground because the reaction stops almost imediatly and the materials around the reactor core cool it to a low enough temp, very quickly.

    In addition, even the crackpots can't show evidence for meaningful long term health effects of Chernobyl. In short, bad as Chernobyl was, it only killed a few dozen people - ie, nothing compared to coal.
