So 1,600 more deaths than Fukushima thenDecember 2, 2013 Tim Worstallnuclear6 CommentsCharity says coal-burning kills 1,600 a year as MPs vote on tighter controls Best if we all went nuclear then, eh? previousAnd this is bollocks and allnextIt’s The Wonder Of The World it is 6 thoughts on “So 1,600 more deaths than Fukushima then” Steve December 2, 2013 at 10:18 am “On Wednesday, MPs will vote on a Lords amendment to the energy bill, led by a coalition of Liberal Democrat and Labour peers, which would close a legal loophole and bring old coal-fired power plants under new regulations – in effect, closing them earlier than planned.” Good job we have all these wind turbines to replace them. DocBud December 2, 2013 at 10:55 am That’s about one twentieth of the excess winter deaths. Neil Craig December 2, 2013 at 11:58 am 1,600 more in Britain. If we are 2% of the world that would be 80,000 more worldwide. Docbud is right about the 20 times more excess winter deaths though the BBC claim only half of them are the fault of politicians. And these same econazis regularly claim their opposition to every sort of human progress is because of “safety concerns”. It is possible that there is somebody,somewhere, in the “environmental” movement who is not wholly and completely dishonest & less genocidal than the guards at Auschwitz, but there is no evidence of such. Gamecock December 2, 2013 at 2:11 pm Show us a body. I claim peppermint candy kills 1,600 a year. My claim is as valid as theirs. Jim December 2, 2013 at 2:33 pm “Good job we have all these wind turbines to replace them.” Just driven past a local wind farm, not one moving at all, too still. But hey, who needs electricity in December? Jeffrey Schein January 13, 2014 at 5:36 am Yes, wind and solar are great. Nuclear has proven to be genocidal. Fukushima has killed millions; they just have not all died yet. Yes, i know; SCANDIUM. The author is invested in nuke crap, so his opinion is worthless.
