Dr. Arnie Gundersen, a nuclear engineer and former plant operator turned whistleblower, explains "myths" about the use of nuclear power. He first noted that allegedly no one has died in a nuclear accident. He explains that it's so safe that under the quoted one million in one odds no melt downs would occur for 2,500. Unfortunately, there have been major accidents. One of the worst was the Pennsylvania melt down at Three Mile island. The expert advises that there have been 1,000,000 deaths from the Chernobyl accident.

As Dr. Gundersen's nuclear education site explains: In order to produce more nuclear electricity, the nuclear corporations and proponents need you to believe that nuclear power is safe, no one has ever died or become ill from nuclear power accidents, nuclear power will counteract global warming, and it is the cheapest form of power.
