It failed because it got hit by an earthquake and then a tsunami. An oil-fired plant would have caused an environmental disaster in those circumstances. A hydroelectric dam would likely have broken and caused its own massive devastation.

So what, it irradiated everything around it and now it is a shit storm that will have tremendous health consequences for who knows how long.

Is it safer than hydro-electric power, yes. Is it immune to mother natures wrath? No.

Given that when a dam breaks it wipes the slate clean, nature can come back and reclaim the environment.

Can the same be said of radio active materials leeching into the ground and sea?

I know, I know Bikini atoll is a wonderful haven and tourist destination!
