What utter crap! Nuclear is dangerous and isn't clean. FACT!

Here is a paradox for you...you are supposedly worried about the death of millions, yet nuclear power is the only reasonable chance we have at clean power for the entire planet.
You would have thought after the recent incidents that radioactive nuke stations would have been outlawed as there is the potential to kill everyone on the planet.
Incidents? Potential to kill everyone on the planet? Please clarify, which incidents other than fukushima? And what evidence suggests that any one of them could kill everyone on the planet?
If nuclear power is not removed globally we are all gonna be killed and we all know it. If we know this radiation will eventually kill us then so do TPTB.
We are? Since when? Evidence please? And how long do we have?
The storage of chemicals is a stationary event and can be done very safely. Nuclear power works on
notion of controlling a chain reaction, and is far more dangerous. Also if chemicals escaped they would undoubtedly be localized rather than global.
I suspect the argument as to HOW nuclear would be global is due to wind. How would it be different to a chemical in the air? Can you provide any studies that show nuclear contamination versus chemical to back up that statement?
[in reference to clean power for the entire planet] We even have the capability to build and use geo-thermal power stations
I would assume a clean answer to all our energy needs for the entire planet would be huge new, can you please cite this news?
Of course we know, fukashima radioan has now encircled the globe, two more like it and we are toast. There are 420+ public stations on the planet, plus many more secret stations.
Any citations on these three claims? 1. Radiation has circled the globe (believable imo) 2. Two more (incidents?) like fukushima will kill us all 3. Secret nuclear power stations?
If there is a high chance the planet could be killed from another fukashima then why are they not doing anything about it?
Seriously, who the hell is saying this? Please give some sort of credible source as to why you are telling everyone 'one more fukushima, and we are toast'.
Of course it is! The paradox being, "TPTB are happy with the radiation even though it will kill them", if thats not a paradox I am reptillian!
Looks like someone has a forked tongue, because that's not a paradox.
"have no electricty or death by radiation". IMHO there is no choice to make!
Sure there is, I'll take no electricity please. How is that not a choice?
"An assertion that is essentially self-contradictory, though based on a valid deduction from acceptable premises."
The paradox, is why would one be willing to kill themselves, it contradicts the basic survival instincts of a species.
Good try... Sadly even with the definition that is still not a paradox.
It is possible to have a survival instinct, and still be willing to kill yourself.
The two conditions existing in the same universe will not cause such universe to explode.
You know damn well there is no word for an alien term of terraforming. It has been stated by many scientists that aliens may "Terraform planets".
The term you are looking for is Xeno-Terraforming, coined by H.G. Wells in his 1898 book "The War of the Worlds" - you may have heard of it.
TPTB will not be developing a virus without having the key vaccine to protect themselves from it
So in your supposed "paradox" you claim "TPTB are happy with the radiation even though it will kill them".... do I really need to point out the obvious here?
