fashionably nuke

The nuclear power industry is busily hunting capital and permits while coloring itself green. But nuke plants are costly, save 2 to 20 times less carbon per dollar, are 20 to 40 times less effective than investing in efficiency and renewable power.

Amory Lovins:

New nuclear power plants’ deepest flaw is their economics. They cost too much to build and incur too much financial risk. Nuclear expansion therefore can’t deliver on its claims.
