Vs. David King on nuclear

David King

http://www.ox.ac.uk/oxford_debates/trinity_2008_the_nuclear_option/proposers_opening.html

claims that nuclear power is not too expensive. Well, if it really isn't, then why has no private company tried to build a nuclear power plant over the last decade, in our de-regulated energy market? There is no bar to them doing so.
The answer is obvious: because nuclear power _is_ too expensive. It is uneconomic, without vast government subsidies.

Do go and join in the debate!:
