Not only that, but the junk that coal and oil plants pump out has killed/will kill more people in the short run too.
Coal power kills a million people per year worldwide. That's ~2700 a day. Half of those are in China, and ~9/10 of the rest are elsewhere outside the western world. Still, ~45 people will die in the USA today because of coal power.
The coal power plants in the Soviet Union killed more people than the Chernobyl disaster every day while it was happening. The coal power plants in the United States kill more people every day than all the civilian nuclear accidents in the USA combined. The coal power plants in Japan currently kill (much) more people than the Daichi plant every day.
The most casualties indirectly caused by Daichi will be in Germany. Because the accident caused enough political pressure to force Merkel to shut down the seven oldest nuclear plants in Germany for 3 months. During those 3 months, they would have produced 17 TWh of energy. Replacing that will kill 250 people. In those 3 months.
The entire discussion on nuclear makes me feel sick to my stomach.
