  •  The math is: multiply what's there by 800 at least (0+ / 0-)

    20 x 40 = 800

    And this is just what's easy to see.  Plus our nuclear plants are disintegrating, and many of them have the same design as Fukushima.

    There's a reason no insurance company will touch nuclear plants.

    Not to mention how much worse it could get if/when one of our plants does a Fukushima.  They sit on active faults and in flood plains and have come very close already.

      (1) You have to multiply the deaths on fossil fuels, too, if your plan is to keep operating them for decades.

      (2) You're still confusing old designs that are already in place with new designs that could be put only in geologically stable areas.

          Mentioned in one of my previous comments above. Purism = defeat.

          I am basically on your side. People like you and people like me should be working together against the common enemy. The differences between you and me are small compared to the differences between us and the fossil fuel industry.
