19. That blog is garbage by a pronuclear idiot.
Go to post 15 below (or follow the link below) to the IAEA pub on mortality for coal and nuclear to see an example of the "sound" "statistics" that the moron used.

The number of fatalities associated strictly with the nuclear fuel chain varies widely according to the study, but ExterneE is widely reconginzed and it arrives at 2.6 deaths/TWh excluding major accidents (see remark below on accidents). Estimates rage as high as 23 deaths/TWh for nuclear.
