“OMG! New ‘CRISIS DISASTER’ at Fukushima! Oh wait, it’s nothing. Again.”

I wouldn’t have bothered posting about this, except for one throwaway line near the top:

[…] In the end, the nuclear apocalypse failed to appear – the scientific consensus is that absolutely no health effects due to the Fukushima radiation will ever be detectable […]

So to sum it up: the worst nuclear disaster in living memory, which happened at a plant which was far less safe than modern designs, triggered by an earthquake and tsunami of a magnitude and size that couldn’t have been foreseen, might give 170 nuclear plant workers a slightly elevated risk of cancer.

Why is it that we’re still polluting the environment by burning coal, again?
