Chernobyl was a disaster. Bad reactor design and a reactor being run
by some poorly trained technician. Ouch.
Fukushima was a poorly designed facility placed in fairly serious
earthquake/tsunami country. Ouch.
Hope we learn from our mistakes --- TMI was almost a non-event ---
pretty good reactor design.
In 50 years the coal, oil, natural gas etc. may be gone. Hope solar,
fission, fusion???, ethanol, methane etc. are still around. People
getting cold in Winter will be begging to have a fission reactor 10 miles from
their home. If they want solar panels on their roof, so be it.

It was the exposure to large amounts of Imaginarium from Fukushima! Duh!
