Again I ask you to look at the history...

History shows that even the worst catastrophe, which Chernobyl was, its not that bad in the long run.
Compared to the hundreds of oil spills that occur every year and the millions of people that are slowly being killed by pollution, the death toll from nuclear power and the effect on the environment are minimal.

I think it's a lot more comparable to giving our children firearms and teaching them proper firearm handling. There are advantages and disadvantages. The disadvantages very bad because our child might die. But the advantages sometimes outweigh the disadvantages because of the odds.

my parents gave me a BB gun when I was nine and a shotgun when I was 12. plenty of parents do this, even though the risk of losing a child is there. The advantages outweigh the disadvantages even though the worst thing that could happen is really really bad.
