  •  Yeah, the externalities (0+ / 0-)

    that somehow can never be sourced or referenced to anything peer reviewed.

    May I suggest you start with ExternE? But you'd better be prepared to have your bubble burst, too.

    •  I am curious (0+ / 0-)

      ...if you count the two workers that were killed by the tsunami doing emergency repairs as casualties of nuclear power?

      I sure do.

      •  They died in the earthquake (0+ / 0-)

        not from the tsunami, and not from radiation release. If you want to count them as nuclear casualties, I have no objection.

        Meanwhile, the coal plant nearest to me kills three times that many people every single week in normal operation. So maybe we can start counting the lives saved by nuclear power too, huh?

        •  No you can't count nuclear (0+ / 0-)

          plants as saving anyone. A workplace related death is a workplace related death and gets chalked up to the industry as a whole.
