Lucky Accident 4 2, 5:16am

@Narf Well, to be fair Chernobyl happened because the soviets deliberately took it beyond it's safety limits because they were bored.
Fukushima on the other hand was built in the least tectonically stable place in the world, Japan, a terrible place to build a nuclear plant in general. In general modern nuclear plants are rather safe, the only thing I'd personally worry about would be the nuclear waste, though even that is much less of a problem to the planet at large than the carbon emissions from coal plants and such.
