    Actually the designs of nuclear power plants have been made very safe, but they have not built one for many years due to the political climate. Safety is not the only concern. Waste is also a huge concern. Most of the nuclear waste from power plants I believe is still stored on the power plant sites.

    Another reason I don't like them... I think we should shoot the waste into the sun. BUT we shouldn't be wasting something as finite as water.

    That would make nuclear power so expensive that even gerbils in roller-cages will be more economic...

    I am very very concerned with nuclear accidents...extremely. ...Japan (right here - Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster),
    Russia (Chernobyl disaster), USA ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclea..._United_States ) ... etc.

    Anything with high level of active radiation, any accident, any atomic detonation, any nuclear race, anything to do with the destruction of our planet and the annihilation of the human race, anything hazardous, anything dangerous, anything chemical and oil spills, anything toxic to the air and the humans breathing that air I am extremely concerned.

    I like people to be safe and healthy first. It is more valuable to have a sane and healthy planet for the people than the other way around.
    Money is a good goal to have in life; plenty of it can buy more freedom and early retirement vacations...travelling the world in luxury yachts, cruise ships, jet planes, room & service, filet mignon 5 stars hotels, Bugattis, Lamborghinis, Ferraris, ... but interacting with the most beautiful people in the world won't get rid of the cancer killing millions.

    It's better to sail safe in the biggest sail ship than sail with abandon and without doing anything about awareness.
    Yes I know, we born, we live our life and we die. But what about the rest?
    Should we be covered @ work if we are injured, and should we work first in preventing injuries?
    That's the question; the risks we take are proportional to the potential financial gains.
    Safety is not first in the real world; money is. Then, look @ the astronomical costs of trying to fix the accidents and repair the injuries of millions of people dead already and the ones condemned to die next...radio active people.

    Albert Einstein said that man is using less than 1% of his brain (maybe 10% @ best), where is the rest? ...The 90 to 99% unused.

    Meh, it would give Elon Musk something to do... Frankly when it comes to world health I don't give a **** about expense vs. humans & animals being able to live a decent life. Surely there have to be other solutions. I don't like feeling like we live in a candle that we're burning on both ends.

    "The next step will be initiating the removal of the melted uranium fuel from one of the reactors, which is expected to get underway in 2021. That said, authorities have not yet selected which reactor will be addressed first. It’s expected to take between 30 and 40 years to finish cleaning up the plant, and the project will cost tens of billions of dollars."
