After all, it is one of the safest and cleanest forms of energy available to us today.
I wonder: do you agree with that claim, F37? I certainly don’t. It’s only safe as long nothing unforeseen happens. But shit happens, again and again. The Fukushima plant was considered safe to operate before the 2011 disaster, too. Zaporizhzhia? More modern and hence safe than Chernobyl, right? Who could have foreseen that humans started a war?
And for “cleanest”: only if you leave out all the long-term challenges and hazards that come with radioactive waste. Or if you, like Boemeke does, “look back” at it from the year 2053, when all the issues somehow have magically disappeared via inventions to be made in the 2030s.
Just because fossil energy sucks doesn’t make nuclear energy any better. Renewables are the way forward.
