32. Oh! Why didn't you say so???

It says that on the INTERNET... so it must be true.

When did "found it on the internet" become synonymous with "large body of scientific opinion" ?

Also... were you going to get around to the actual question you've dodged? You can't say that a new type of reactor is "just as deadly" as an old type by showing that the old type was dangerous.

the area will not be safe to repopulate for 600 years

Large portions of the exclusion zone are primarily contaminated with Cesium 137, which has a half-life of about 30 years. That means that there's currently about a million times as much of the stuff as there will be 600 years from now. It's pretty safe to assume that cesium contamination will drop below any safety thresh hold long before that.
