But please tell me how do you want to operate coal mines on a large scale without mining?
Costs of mining accidents are identical regardless of dying slaves or volunteers.
Can you point to simulations that show how these 100,000ds of people could die? (hint:
9.0 richter quake and tsunami are not enough to make fukushima kill even single person - for me is good performance of 40 year old nuclear plant.
Lots of people live around chemical facilities and cant move away too. Ever heard about Bhopal or Banqiao? Why single out nuclear plants?
This are not power plants.
How do you dare to compare a nuclear power plants safety with 3rd worlds mining accidents?
Are you completely nuts?
P.S. how many ppl died in oil spills? And again: what has that to do with a power plant and its safety?
If you compare nuclear with other types of energy you cant point out to the one link in chain and compare only that. You need factor in supporting industry (coal and uranium mines + oil wells).
Please do tell me that no one dies on coal mines and oil wells are safe
