You mean the way you rationalize your worrying about a technology that
kills almost nobody while ignoring a technology that kills a minimum
of tens of thousands of people per year?

I'm not saying that nuclear energy doesn't have problems that it would
be good to address, but if you've got a choice between focusing on
that or coal power it's completely clear which of the two is more
dangerous and killing more people on a daily basis.

>From your discussion of airline safety it appears you have the same
problem in other areas. We already spend too much on airline safety
realative to auto safety, and yet you focus on the thing that kills
hardly anyone.
