    I'm with you on the point that we are up the creek without a paddle.

    I merely note that of all existent strategies, nuclear is the most effective.   That is not the same as saying it is effective enough.

    Currently the reactors on the drawing board, about 220 - and those that are now running, all 442 of them - combined would produce about half as much energy as is now produced by coal.

    The modern world record for building a reactor is currently held by the Japanese.   That reactor, an ABWR, was constructed, from first poured concrete to grid integration in 39 months.   But that is the record not the average.
