Will you now stop driving your car, sailing your Boat walking to work, living.... and wait for the 100% safeguard on all of these things before you go on living? Nothing is 100% safe, but I am sure you will keep on living with you less then 100% Life. and debating the issue of clean safe Nuclear might go over better in another thread.
If the core of one of these reactors has a significant meltdown (which appears to have already happened) and its containment vessel fails (which may also have happened) the fall-out that will be (or perhaps are currently being) released will take BILLIONS OF YEARS (yes, I'm yelling; and, no, that's not an exaggeration) to decay. Please point us to anything else with such consequences.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
