    You made a false statement and now you’re upset.
    You should probably further develop some maturity.

    Ha, fro. The person lacking maturity. You know nothing of commercial nuclear power, you could not see a mistake if it was on the tip of your tongue.

    The cost of nuclear is over four times the cost of wind, and over 3 times the cost of stand alone solar. However, it is over 5 times the cost of solar plus storage. And it cannot deliver power tuned as closely to demand as the combination of solar or wind plus storage. Nuclear is really a non-starter today. No reason to build anymore plants and time to retire the old ones as the renewables plus storage are built.

    Thanks. I see a whole lot of "Source: Lazard estimates" in the footnotes.

    Self-referential citations are self-referential.
