@kravietz Nuclear power is guaranteed destruction as well… Creating nuclear waste lasting for centuries and other than CO2, we don't even have a remote idea on how to get rid of it.
And no, hiding it in the ground is not a great answer as all temporary depots have shown.
I think we have to come up with better solutions there.
There are ~450 civilian nuclear reactors working all around the world as we speak.
Over the last 50 years there were *two* serious nuclear accidents among these 450 reactors.
One in a 70's military 1st gen RBMK reactor in USSR that was put into melt-down by violating all safety procedures.
Another one in 70's 2nd gen reactor in Japan built in a active seismic zone.
So yes, these two were statistically expected.
