Why The Economics Don't Favor Nuclear Power In America

Why The Economics Don't Favor Nuclear Power In America | Renewable energy is homeland security! | Scoop.it
The 50-year failure of nuclear power to be economically competitive compels nuclear advocates to label every pro-consumer analysis as anti-nuclear. The anti-nuclear label is used to avoid the inconvenient truth about nuclear: it is and has been unable to compete economically with the alternatives available. More importantly, it is not likely to be able to compete for the foreseeable future.
Josée Bayeur's insight:

"Given the history of failed nuclear promises, the recent dramatic success of the alternatives, and the fact that currently available renewable technologies and efficiency can meet the demand for low carbon electricity for the foreseeable future, the path that a prudent decision maker would take is to maximize their contribution."
