Coal kills 10 times more people every year than the Fukushima disaster ever will. Time to re-examine nuclear?
Stanford’s Mark Z. Jacobson and John Ten Hoeve have released a peer-reviewed study predicting remarkably few long-term casualties from the Fukushima meltdown. "They used a supercomputer to model the spread of radionuclides from the Fukushima reactors around the globe, and then calculated the resulting radiation doses and cancer cases through the year 2061. Their result: a probable 130 fatal cancers, with a range from 15 to 1300, in the whole world over fifty years." Coal kills 13,000 per year.
