Sustainable yes but when things go wrong they go very wrong, people are concerned because of cases like at worst chernobyl and at best the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant I had to look it up and used the whole name in case you missed it, but basically natural disaster hit japan and the place goes up... you know what just google it I'm terrible at explaining these cases were big scary and slightly mutating and have left a bad test in the general public's mouth, which is actually kinda sad because they offer no immediate threat to the environment or much risk in the long run... well except as to what is to be down with spent power rods.

If you research Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors (LFTRs) they are very safe. Compared to Uranium nuclear power, they don't use compressed steam, instead using molten salts. So if things go wrong, everything gets dumped into a pit below the reactor instead of blowing up into the atmosphere. Besides that, it also operates at a lower temperature and can use weaponized uranium and nuclear by product from uranium plants as fuel, effectively reducing nuclear waste. And the small amount that is waste (about a tenth of what is waste from traditional nuclear facilities) has a half life of 30 years vs 300. The only reason that it isn't popular is because people are scared of cases like Chernobyl, and don't realize the advancements we've made.

You realize Chernobyl was also over-exaggerated right? It did massive physical damage, but the radioactivity is down by a lot now, and the WHO released a causality number 4000 predicted deaths. In fact, the original numbers and the papers published on the scale of Chernobyl have been contested by the WHO

And even with that in mind, Chernobyl failed because it was a mess. Yes things can go wrong in nuclear power, but you REALLY have to try to reach Chernobyl levels of ignorance for basic safety to replicate that.

It doesn't help that the way that Chernobyl's cooling plant worked promoted instability rather than halting it. It is such an obvious problem that NO other nuclear power plant uses, yet peole constantly use it for their point of view. You know how they measure how safe a power plant is....they make an estimate of how likely a meltdown is to occur...you know what the average number for it is? Once very 20,000 years....and that isn't a full meltdown they are talking about. That is just a partila meltdown likely to end up in less than 20 deaths, which likely won't be traceable back tothe nuclear power plant because of the shear number of things that would be able to do that same thing. Sorry forgrammar erros. Comp is going slow, and I don't wanna take the time it would to go back and fix them.

Yeah, I got an idea. Let's house our enrichment facilities in the same building as our reactor. That won't be a problem at all. Oh, and while we're at it, let's not worry about safety.

I actually don't really think that Nichijou is very close, comedy-wise, it's more of cuteness and some mild randomness rather than Nichibros' batshit insanity and awesome.
