28. You still haven't answered my original question.
How many mutations, cancers and deaths have been linked to working at nuclear power plants? Many, many deaths have been linked to working in coal mines, if nuclear is so bad, surely there must be plenty of evidence showing how workers at nuclear power plants have a far higher rate of cancer because of it, right? Nuclear power has been around quite a long time, long enough for there to have been many epidemiological studies regarding their safety. You simply saying that these workers who have been exposed to minute levels of radiation are going to get sick and die of cancer in 20 years is a pretty laughable way of trying to make a case. Have you had x-rays recently? If you have, you're going to die a painful death 10 to 20 years from now. I can just as easily say that the world will come to an end in 20 years unless we quickly engage in the widespread creation of nuclear power plants.

I generally prefer to use facts and logic when making an argument. Emotion is a piss poor debater.
