Nuclear Economics.

Excellent piece in the Telegraph on nuclear costs and risks. Do go read it. I think it’s the first mainstream piece I’ve seen that covers all the bases accurately. The long timescales making nuclear plants financially risky, the delays and costs of the planning process, the deaths from Chernobyl accurately recorded (and compared to those from coal mining), comparison of the radioactivity of stored wastes to Cornish rocks....obviously, part of the reason I like the article so much is that I’ve blogged on the same points for some time. Go read the article.
