Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sigh. you need to think your logic through. I was suggesting that society will go fission before it powers down. In that context - where the alternative is going without energy - the response to nuclear accidents would be to ignore them. The average life expectancy in energy starved societies is below 40. living in the chernobyl exclusion zone would take less off your life expectancy than that. Living in the area evacuated around fukushima would cost you less adjusted life years than living in wales. So if the alternative is no juice, fission will get used and when it goes wrong, people will eat iodine tablets and make morbid jokes.
