Great statements:

Needs to be promulgated into the public eye to change opinion.

Obviously Nuclear is the future for sustainable Carbon free energy. Civilization's need for energy will always increase. Nuclear is the only minimal resource way of providing the world transportation system's energy requirement with a zero Carbon emission solution for electric & Hydrogen powered vehicles.

The only nuclear reactors under construction today, at Vogtle in Georgia, are estimated to cost $28 billion and will produce 2200 megawatts. That's about $13/watt, not including fuel and operating expenses. By contrast, solar panels cost about $3/watt installed, have no operating expenses and their fuel (sunlight) is free and eternal, whereas the fuel for reactors is expensive and scarce uranium, a non-renewable resource extracted from the earth.
