Nuclear energy is too costly

For those who think nuclear is a great solution, the evidence is that the costs of this energy are impossibly high if you include risks and dealing with the waste.
Fundamentally, we need to focus on the energy technologies and strategies that meet the combination of low cost (including all environmental and health costs), practicality, and scalability.
Nuclear fails the key tests not because Japan shows nuclear power is inherently unsafe. Nuclear fails the test because it is wildly expensive, and Japan makes clear there is a good reason for that.
