18. On other words you can't answer the question.

You could have just said so.

I notice you forgot to use the term "zero-fuel cost" in your non-answer, as in "zero-fuel cost renewables".

The path for zero fuel cost renewables is very clear, where is the path for nuclear with it's fuel cost, AND it very, very, very high captal cost that has to be amortized over a 60 year payback?

The question isn't complicated, what mechanism in nuclear pricing shuts a coal plant down when the utility builds nuclear plants? You claim nuclear is the way to address climate change, explain in detail what this oh-so-critical path to carbon reduction looks like.
