  •  Because nukes aren't green (1+ / 0-)

    And building new ones generates huge CO2 that takes years of generation to washout. Meanwhile the energy and CO2 costs of mining increasingly scarce uranium and indefinite safe storage of deadly waste means that building nukes does not help reduce CO2 emissions by offsetting coal burning for at least a generation after their creation, if at all.  The risks are so high, that a crony-captured system cannot be trusted to build or maintain them.
