Top 5 reasons why intelligent liberals don’t like nuclear energy
"1. Ignorance: This simple reason remains remarkably pervasive. I am not trying to sound preachy or elitist here but reading two or three books would greatly benefit people who have a gut reaction against nuclear energy. The whole set of beliefs about any kind of radiation in any proportion being harmful, about nuclear plants releasing large amounts of radiation (when in reality they release fractions of what everyone naturally gets from the environment), about nuclear waste being a hideously convoluted and insoluble problem (the problem is largely political, not technical) can be dispelled by reading some basic books on radiation and nuclear energy. The most important revelation in this context is how, in our daily lives, we face risks that are hundreds of times greater than those from nuclear energy (transportation, air pollution etc.) without being nonplussed. Chernobyl and Fukushima notwithstanding, the fact remains that nuclear power has killed far fewer people in history compared to almost every other energy source." - Mark H from Bookmarklet

Hiroshima and Nagasaki notwithstanding, atomic bombs have killed fewer people compared to every other weapon. Ban guns and give everyone an atomic bomb. - mkoz
