The safest way to make electricity

The safest way to make electricity

Nuclear is actully the safest way to make electricity. In the worst nuclear power accidents, relatively small amounts of particulate matter escape, harming only a handful of people.

During the rest of the time, nuclear plants emit no carbon dioxide and are reducing exposure to air pollution, by replacing fossil fuels and biomass.

In televison, nuclear is not the context but the antagonist

Radiation is not contagious. Once someone has removed their clothes and been washed, the radioactivity is internalized.

Television gets nuclear wrong not only for dramatic effects, but for the same reason humankind as a whole has been getting it wrong for over 60 years, which is that we’ve displaced our fears of nuclear weapons onto nuclear power plants.
