    It's also true that the fission process in a nuke plant is inherently dangerous because it generates so much heat in a small space.
    The strength of nuclear power is that it generates large amounts of power in a small space using small amounts of fuel and producing small amounts of waste. Amusing to hear this suggested as an inherent danger.

      It's both an advantage in terms of power output and a danger because it's hard to cool efficiently.  Where's the contradiction?

      First they came for the slippery-slope fallacists, and I said nothing. The End.

      •  It just feels to me like pointing out the (0+ / 0-)

        glass is 1/8th empty given the benefits of such a highly efficient form of energy, but I do see your point.
