26. big "if"
At the moment nuclear power is just reckless.

No workable idea for final storage - no nation has a place that can be considered adequate (yet).

The risk is covered by the tax-payer for free - and there is a considerable risk. Although new reactor types might be far more safer than the existing, a worst-case scenario has been found for each new type. So far no "next generation" reactor type has held its promise; the fast breeder vanished (except the Japanese - I wouldn't want to life near that one), the gas cooled reactors ...

I see the results of Chernobyl often here: it's still dangerous to eat chestnuts or game. And that's over a thousand miles away.
