Risk Assessment of Different Energy Sources

I have tried to organize various sources of energy in a 10-point scale (from 0 to 9) where 0 is absolutely reprehensible and 9 means fully acceptable. This is a supplement to my previous blogs on this subject and the content of the website (in Swedish)

0 Nuclear power based on fission of uranium
1 Nuclear power based on fission of thorium
2 Nuclear power based on the fusion
3 Nuclear power based on cold fusion
4 Energy from fossil fuels
5 Energy recovery from wood
6 Energy recovery by microbiological processes
7 Energy from the sun, wind and water
8 Geothermal energy
9 Energy Efficiency

This scale is of course not necessarily valid for all times to come. Circumstances may occur which might justify adjustments
