Here's an article that might help. You do get the feeling that we're more comfortable with the devil we know in the case of coal.
This is .. interesting. Nuclear victims Tchernobyl alone are - as it has just been published - (again!), 220,000 injured directly related to the Tchernobyl "accident". There were 356,000, but the rest has meanwhile died.
By all means this is a bit more than 9,000, which would be bad enough.
Or is this table from 1986 ?

That is all deaths since 1986. No real source puts the deaths at anything like the number you quote. Not by orders of magnitude.
BTW, even if you used your numbers, nuclear would still be grossly safer than coal.

Hey! take it to the spinoff thread!
And a happy ending to the rescued dog's story - her owner is safe, recognized the dog on the news and was reunited with the pet :yeah:
