My US American ex, she didn't even know what "Chernobyl" is/was...
As for nuclear incidents, it's not only about freak accidents like earthquakes etc.. (although i actually think it's EXTREMELY RETARDED that Japan
built many of them in earthquake danger zones...just a matter of time until something happened...)....but also potential threads from terrorism.
I don't think that the US will wake up unless some major accident would happen (you know how MANY of reactors are in densely populated areas like
illinois etc.?) - at this point i can assume that (guessing...) 70% of all Americans are totally oblivious of the dangers.....and what it would
actually mean if a reactor somewhere on the East Coast or in the mid-west would blow as in Japan or Chernobyl.
However...as some threads just in the recent days have proven again..some people think its MORE important that utilities are cheap and that their
"standard of living" is kept up....this' the reason we have nuclear power plants in the first place..because it's rather "cheap" energy as opposed to
spending money in research on alternative energies etc.
So...give it some time....years...decades..i don't know..some major accident...until then people are just too stupid to even know whats going on
Same with terrorism...because unless it actually hit NYC on 9/11....terrorism was something which happened in countries where most people wouldn't
even find on a map....and until "the kid will get burnt"...it might try to climb on the stove to play, if you get my analogy...
