We should close down all nuclear industry for now.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency estimated that the amount of radioactive caesium sent into the atmosphere by the Fukushima disaster was equivalent to 168 Hiroshima bombs. Direction of resistance / implied resistance: People often count up how many nuclear power stations operate without disaster and say that just one or two going wrong does not mean we need to halt the whole programme.

Removal of resistance: When it comes to radiation, which can spread and kill the whole planet in some of the more disastrous possible results of our mismanagement of power and weapons, one big catastrophe can mean total extinction. Unification: We all want infinite cheap energy in a safe way and if we can work to make methods of gaining it come at a cost of zero risk of extinction then we can agree to go ahead with whatever methods those are, even if they involve nuclear science.
