We Pay a Stiff Premium for Nuclear Fear

Quoting Bill Frezza
“In the case of nuclear energy, superstition, fear, and partisan politics carried the day after the Three Mile Island accident, shutting down the U.S. nuclear power industry for three decades. This despite the fact that more people died in Ted Kennedy's car. We have all been paying a stiff fear premium ever since…

It's as if the mystical power of the atom reduces us to gibbering primitives.

By all means let's learn from this and all past accidents to make sure nuclear power plants are as safe as we know how to build them. Let's insist on the highest construction standards and hold plant operators strictly accountable for any accidents. But let's not make the same hysterical mistake we made last time we sacrificed our energy future for the illusion of safety.”
