Scientific American nuclear power scaremongering again

... we face another danger that is in many ways more threatening than a meltdown: the steady accumulation of radioactive waste ...

Scientific American editorial just said that used nuclear fuel is more dangerous than the Chernobyl accident. I don't see that when I compare deaths due to :

  • used nuclear fuel (worldwide) = none I know of
  • radiation at Chernobyl = 50 to 60
  • forced evacuation at Chernobyl = hundreds to thousands
