Coach Comet Have you even read the first 2 posts of this thread? You think using some isolated stories in order to turn nuclear power into the boogey-man, while pretending/failing to research the relevant data, is not using straw-men for said purpose? If so - lol. Also, don't think it's not obvious how you tried to avoid the substance of my previous post - the actual statistical data, as opposed to alarmistic anecdotes, showing nuclear power to be safer, by far, than all other energy generating methods. PS - I see irrelevant semantic hair-splitting has been your hallmark throughout this thread. So, do tell - what are your reasons for opposing nuclear power? Clearly, without irrelevant detours or attacking the other poster as replacements for actual arguments.
