> The practical solution is, of course, nuclear power
If you define practical like the rest of the world, that is, "cost effective", then this statement is demonstrably not true.
Modern nuclear plants have a CAPEX of about $8 and a CF around 90%. That is an effective production cost of $8.90
Modern wind turbines have a CAPEX of about $1.50 and a CF around 30%. That's an effective production cost of $5.00
So if your goal is to decarbonize the electrical supply, wind does it for a little over half the cost.
> Just wait until China and India
China's maximum planned buildout was to make about 1/2 the number of plants as the US to provide supply for four times the population. After the one-two punch of the 2008 Sichuan earthquake pointing out horrible safety violations in building and then Fukishima, these plans are on hold. Meanwhile, China installs more wind and solar than they ever planned for nuclear, about two to three times.
