But atomic energy is human history's most expensive technological failure, defined by what seems to be a terminal reverse learning curve.  After more than a half-century to get it right, the industry has most recently poked holes in the head of a reactor in Florida, and installed $700 million steam generators it knew to be faulty in two more in California.  It now wants to open San Onofre Unit Two at a 70% level, essentially to see what happens.  Some 8 million people live within a 50-mile radius.   

This from an increasingly dangerous industry that has brought us four "impossible" explosions---one at Chernobyl, three at Fukushima---clearly with more yet to come.  Its radiation has spewed for decades.  Its wastes have no place on this planet. 

The ultimate death toll among Fukushima's victims may be inescapable.  But the industry that's harming them is not.   

Those thyroid-damaged children bring us yet another tragic warning: There's just one atomic reactor from which our energy can safely come. 

Two years after Fukushima, it is still 93 million miles away---but more ready than ever to safely, cleanly and cheaply power our planet.
