Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'll grant you that the source I used re: Chernobyl was older, but it is a highly credible source, and many of the points it makes have not receded, especially with regard to environmental impacts.

I am well aware that the projected death toll from Chernobyl is expected to be around 4,000; thankfully far less than previously feared.

I also take your point about Chrenobyl's design being signficantly improved upon, but I think you gloss over far too glibly the implications of developing nations in particular building nuclear power plants; and the safety implications there - that was precisely what Chernobyl illustrated.
