10. You are placing a very unlikely could over a very real "is."

Laying awake over Zion and the water supply is irrational as he'll.

The threat actually being realized to water supplies by climate change is not.

You may or may not be interested in the science surrounding Fukushima, where operable reactors failed discharging much of the volatile products of fresh nuclear fuel directly into the environment.

Radiation did not kill 8 million people. It didn't kill 20,000 people although seawater did kill that many people in the event, not that anyone is talking or worrying about the safety of coastal cities or talking about banning them. The only thing that matters in this sick and arbitrary focus is the radiation.

Today 19, 000 people will die from air pollution but no stays up at night worrying about the toxic stuff people breathe because of an illiterate fear of small concentrations of radioactive material leads to the dangerous and deadly decisions to not build nuclear power plants.

Nuclear energy saves lives. It follows that anti-nuclear fear and ignorance kills people.

We are even close to agreement on this issue.
