any government regs should be established by actual scientists and experts, not some tycoon who pays a legislature to let him do what is cheapest.

False dichotomy. And Strawman. And ironic considering you wield those accusations yourself.

Regulators are not supposed to be lobbyists. Though yes they are in Trumpworld, the most corrupt guvm’t in US history. But scientists too are corruptible. Look no farther than the 3% Deniers who are paid off by the fossil fuel companies.

In short, humans are corruptible and mistake-prone. And that’s exactly why they shouldn’t be trusted with deadly nuclear fuel and nuclear waste. There are much safer and cleaner options available.

Every nuclear dollar is a dollar that could have been spent on expanding and improving safe, clean, renewable energy.
