It is terrible to see the event unfold in front of our eyes and the government bending backward to all the pressures of the nuclear lobby! Two of the three new nuclear builds in France and Finland are costing twice the initial budget, there is an incredibly complex and dragging on legacy issue to tackle, the waste issue is not addressed and the nuclear safety regulator is not even capable to address its own internal problems. Finally there has been a review from independent finance watchdog in France stating very clearly that nuclear is not cheaper than renewable and these people are not hippies anti-nuclear guys! Nuclear safety is not just a technical matter but heavily relies on management and regulation of these sites throughout the whole site lifespan.
Embarking in a nuclear power program now is complete madness and will result in all of us bearing the cost (again!) and will be the result of lobbying rather than a political decision aimed toward society benefit.
