    most people don´t understand that without radioactivity it is probable that life as we know it on earth would not exist, nuclear power may be dangerous but so is life and with our energy requirements we cannot live our lives as we do now without it.

    Lots of pro-nuclear propaganda and fantasies in this debate. For example, the claim that only "40 to 60" people died due to Chernobyl is an outrageous lie. The WHO suggest there will be 9000 excess deaths and many more cancers.

    Thorium reactors are a dangerous fantasy that distract from real solutions. Even if someone does design one that works, it will be many decades before a commercial reactor comes online which is far too late to save the planet from catastrophic climate change.

    The fact is most renewable energy sources are already cheaper than nuclear power, and by the time a new nuke started today comes online in 10 or more years time, *every* renewable energy source will be cheaper.
