As we remember the 1986 Chernobyl tragedy, it's worth also reminding that ~400 other #nuclear reactors worldwide continue operate uninterrupted for the last half century providing stable and clean electricity.
Three remaining Chernobyl reactors continued to operate safely to 2000.Even after Chernobyl closure Ukraine's energy sector continues to produce electricity at relatively low CO2 intensity thanks to #nuclear plants - today it's 240 gCO2eq/kWh while Germany is at... 230.
Also the radiotoxicity of the HLW goes down much faster than you could think because whatever activists are talking about, they'd always highlight the isotope with the longest half-time even if it's present at microscopic amounts.
Again, in reality only after 10 years the radiotoxicity of HLW is reduced to 30% of the original value! In 100 years it's 7% etc and it then goes asymptotically down to the background levels.
