hey now! Nothing like the currently running HBO series 'Chernobyl' to refocus on the cautionary side being taken by those scientists/engineers working on/towards the next iteration of nuclear reactors... something about, "advances in sustainability, economics, safety, reliability, proliferation-resistance, etc..". And, by the by, how do you pronounce, "Fukushima"
Such things are a price that needs to be paid if we do indeed face a "climate crisis". However, your refusal to accept all available options is noted and it means you can't really complain if other people refuse to consider options you prefer.

no - as stated many times in the past, I'm a proponent of nuclear. As much as the HBO series is 'drama theatre'... as much as it/Chernobyl and Fukishima were caused by degrees of questionable design/deployment/human error, etc.., your described "price that needs to be paid" has been evaluated by many countries and found wanting. Hence a refocus on the cautionary emphasis toward the expectations of greater safety/reliability of 'next-gen nuclear'.
