So if nuclear is more scarry then man made climate change that tells you there isn't a problem to begin with.
Because with climate change we are all supposed to die, with old nuclear tech worst case scenario a few zip codes are poisoned with nuclear fall out, that's a far cry from irreversible global damage thata going to hurt everyone on earth for thousands of years.
John Wayne,and half the cast and crew of the 1956 film,The Conqueror died from breathing nuclear fallout,plus cigarette smoking.
That puts some Americans off to anything associated with the 'Peaceful Atom.'
Three-Mile Island,Chernobyl,and Fukushima Dai-Ichi didn't help either.
Dead friends and family drive home the concept of how fragile and fleeting human life actually is,and could explain why some are hesitant to embrace technology already firmly linked to the Grim Reaper.
