And not a single death nor even the likelihood of a single death in the years to come:
Tokyo Electric Power Co. confirmed a meltdown of fuel rods in two more reactors at its Fukushima nuclear plant, which has been emitting radiation since an earthquake and tsunami knocked out power and cooling systems.
Fuel rods in the No. 3 unit started melting on March 13 and those in the No. 2 reactor on March 14, Junichi Matsumoto, a spokesman at the company known as Tepco, told reporters in Tokyo today. The fuel dropped to the bottom of the pressure vessel after melting although the damage to the vessel is “limited,” he said.
This nuclear power stuff\’s pretty damn shit hot safe, innit?
Aboslutely everything that could go wrong did: the 5 th largest earthquake of the century, a 30 foot tsunami roaring in at 500 mph, the inevitable human errors, and nuclear power, qua nuclear power, killed fewer people than die falling off roofs installing solar panels of the kind championed by Mr. Leggett.
We\’ll obviously have to ban solar power then because of the dangers it poses, eh?
