    • It is because of chernobyl that modern nuclear reactors are much safer, we need a disaster like this to happen so we could learn from it. Also the graphite reactor they used was a shit design that they stole from the US, and the US told USSR it was gonna blow up but they did not listen.

    • Thorium-based reactors are even safer, thorium of much more abundant in nature than uranium, and thorium doesn’t create weapons grade plutonium as a waste product. Let’s push for that

    • You guys know that 20% of U.S power comes from only 58 nuclear reactors? 5 times that and America is 100% clean energy. New 2020 reactors can re use up to 30 of the bi products, and even if it couldn't, that slight radioactive waste is a thousand times cleaner than anything else.
