Comment: "Statistics don't lie"

"Statistics don't lie"

You haven't heard the expression, "There's lies, damn lies, and statistics"? It's the most efficient way to lie.

Comparing Chernobyl deaths to solar panel deaths is funny, except as a statistic.

They can't stop the reactors at Fukushima. They have no idea what to do. It's utterly beyond their capability. There's a second disaster in the spent fuel, teetering on weakened structure that could still collapse, years after the event. Fear mongering? It's not even widely reported.

Would your daughter's leukemia be a statistic? How about Iraq, a country covered in depleted uranium dust, because someone's looking to put nuclear waste to use?

I completely disagree with this post, despite a clearly excellent record of safety in the nuclear industry, as demonstrated by statistics.
