can nuke power be affordable?
Compared to what? Can we continue to belch megatons of pollutants and
greenhouse gases in the air? What will be the cost to clean that up?
What is the cost of ecological damage from coal mining and gas
drilling/transportation? and how does that compare to similar damage
from uranium mining?
When comparing things, you really need to compare all costs, internal
and external. The use of nuclear power admittedly involves potential
environmental consequences, but the use of fossil power (the only actual
alternative to nuclear power) involves CERTAIN environmental consequences.
