Tim Flannery on nuclear power: "As with coal, nuclear power stations are very large, about 1700 megawatts, and with a starting price of $US2 billion ($2.6 billion) apiece they are expensive to build. The power they generate, however, is at present competitive with that generated from wind."

No cheaper than wind power, and with the other negatives, such as accidents, waste disposal and weaponization, I dont understand the arguments in favour of nuclear power.
