@istria- While the nuclear medicine field is expanding, we still need experienced nuclear power technicians and engineers to operate our nuclear infrastructure.
I would argue that the biggest reason the nuclear power is not safe is that we are losing the institutional capacity to deal with a nuclear accident. Not enough technicians and engineers are entering the field, the government is cutting funding to nuclear R&D, and the country's nuclear infrastructure is aging.
Even if people are against nuclear power, they should realize that these aging reactors should be replaced with more autonomous reactors, or decommissioned and replaced with other renewable energy utilities. To let the nuclear infrastructure rot away is irresponsible and puts people in more danger than updating or transforming the industry.
