Your argument for coal is outdated. Clean coal technology has been around for two generations and gets better all the time. Fly ash is precipitated out of the smokestacks and collected 24 hours a day at coal burning facilities. It costs a fortune, which is why U.S. electricity rates are sky high.
Of course, China doesn't employ that...
As for nuclear:
I, too, used to think it was a good deal. (30 yrs in military & power utility industry) Safe to say Chernobyl and Fukushima, which continues to shït in our collective messkit in the Pacific, pretty much argue against it. Waste can be dealt with ~ but major fukups without the possibility of a do-over are forever.
Your argument that radiation poison can be survived is also a bit on the freakin' bogus side.
I mean, really? Why the hell should innocent peeps have no say whatsoever in a fatal or non-fatal dose of that shït? I think it should be a fundamental human right that life be pursued without the fear of glowing in the dark.
Your argument is akin to giving a child a box of rattlesnakes to play with because they are entertaining and very pretty (the benefit) and if the child gets bitten, yeah there may be a horrendous amount of swelling, limb-loss or death but it will probably be survivable if the kid's only bitten by one of the snakes and the antivenin is close at hand. (the cleanup)
The earth has enough fossil fuels to keep life as we know it going until advancements in alt-energy catch up with demand ~ and, we have the technology to keep it clean ~ it's done every day at coal fired power plants in Europe & the U.S..
imo, it's beyond time to phase out nukes.
