Fukushima has 1 attributed death. And if you count uranium mining operations (which you should), you're going to get more. Nothing in life is perfectly safe, but nuclear power is damn near the fucking top even when you don't account for how efficient it is. If you factor that in, it might just be the safest thing of all time.

i said power plants

mining accidents are ubiquitous no matter what they are digging

the one guy who died did not do so as a direct result of the disaster

he died of radiation exposure during the cleanup

That still counts lol.

Yes, and? You are trying to paint a picture that is just false and will harm the adoption of nuclear energy in the long run. The relevant metric is total deaths/injuries per kWh. Not "deaths in thuper thpethific thenarios i get to make up."
