Why this is important to me

A lot of people think nuclear power is bad. In fact, modern reactors have the lowest number of casualities per unit of power produced (perhaps even safer than alternative sources)! [1]

Not a single person died because of the Fukushima disaster. The leaks were minute, because the plant was contained effectively, even though it was hit by an earthquake followed by a tsnami, which is impossible in Germany. It turns out that only the ones very close to the plant have a slightly higher risk of cancer. [2]

Yet the German people, who are the powerhouse of the European economy, have decided to withdraw support for their nuclear powerplants, due to the media blowing everything out of proportion. We should not let media hype destroy a technology that could save mankind from self-destruction.
