WTF? NASA Claims Nuclear Power Saves Lives

WTF? NASA Claims Nuclear Power Saves Lives Greener.Ideal Have the dangers of nuclear power been overhyped? If former NASA scientist and climate activist James Hansen is to be believed, the use of nuclear power over the past few decades has actually saved lives. A recently-published paper by two researchers at NASA‘s Goddard Institute of Space Studies has run the numbers and found that, despite the incredible risks of nuclear power, only about 4,900 people died as a result of nuclear power plants between 1971 and 2009. (That’s including deaths related to horrific nuclear disasters like Chernobyl, by the way.) These deaths were mostly due to workplace accidents and radiation fallout. That may sound like a big number, until you compare it to the number of people who’ve died as a result of burning fossil fuels for power. In the same study, Hansen and his colleagues go on to es...
