Occasional death is not a sufficient reason to be against something. If my family died in a plane crash, I would not be anti-flight.

Ladder falls kill a surprisingly large amount of people, and it accounts for among the largest percentage of accidental death, yet we don't see anti-ladder protesters in the streets.
Reason shouldn't necessarily be implied when discussing people's reactions to things.Emotion appears to dominate the decision-making landscape,a true victory for the conspiracy of your choosing.
Our survival has been associated with the ability to conceptualize a threat which may be lurking over the next hill,be it a jaguar, quick sand,or asteroid.
A perceived threat isn't handled any differently than a tangible,first order reality experience.
Nuclear power,to some,carries the same tooth and claw menace of a tiger.It's reptilian,triune-brained.Evolutionarily-selected.
