    I doubt if anybody wants to have even small nuclear reactor at home after what happened recently in Fukushima. Well, I know that it has happened under different circumstances and conditions but that is a bit odd. I am sorry I am not a fan of these.

    I’d rather live near a nuclear power plant than near noisy eye sore wind power station, or a dangerously explosive natural gas power plant, or near the toxic fumes of a coal power plant, or near the dangerous dam of a hydroelectric plant.

    A dam also burst in the same region of Japan where the nuclear power plant was located, wiping out more than 1800 homes after the 9.0 earthquake. Unless you assume no one was at home, this one dam alone probably killed more than 2000 people.
