RE: California power ... unplugged.
All true, but irrelevant to the people with cancer in the Ukraine and elsewhere. Still, having worked in rnd.pge.com back when it was a state of the art department, the consensus there was that small nuclear plants were far safer than the large one's in vogue before 3 mile island (whose core is now encased in concrete for thousands of years). No question nuclear is clean but only if you carefully ignore the danger of depleted uranium. But I digress, that's a problem for future generations (if we're lucky).
