    On average, there are far more fatalities from driving than flying each year.

    On the other hand, an accident involving an airplane is far more likely to result in death than an accident involving a car.

    Similarly, even though nuclear power may cause fewer deaths, the fact remains that a nuclear accident has a much greater chance to be a catastrophe than a wind/solar accident.

    I'm not saying that we need to end use of nuclear power, but I do think that, overall, renewable forms of energy will, in the long run, prove safer.
