I don't believe that the majority of the public would recognize the words 'inherently' and 'safe' used in tandem.
Most I talk to don't realize that nuclear fuel heats water that makes steam that turns a turbine that cranks out Mw, but that the amps and volts on tap in their sockets are somehow neutrons. Also think that irradiation will make their food radioactive... It makes the job of the alarmists like Helen Caldicott very easy.
