So, what you guys say, nuclear energy is so unreliable, any guy on the street can make a prediction, one reactor out of 50 will fail in 5 to 10 year
If that is the case, then we should get rid of nuclear energy option all together, and all our leaders and total nut cases.
BUT, this is not the case. Nuclear systems are made to be safe for multiple failures, and these failures are contained at safe zones and are designed
not to cascade or propagate the failure. It is principally built around a multiple safety concepts. The probability for a total failure is very small,
0.5 over 400 years.
Against this background then, you might tad revise your argumentation.
Whereas what comes to any guy on the street saying anything and it just happens - Well, such is life. Some guesses go right, some go wrong. Who cares?
