Half-life of a nuke industry.

Both nuclear power & nat gas are important wedges of our energy mix as we transition our 20th Century economy from dirty coal & foreign oil to cleaner nat gas & renewable energy sources.

But expect only a handful of nukes, at least on the home planet, to remain operational by 2030, as we shift gov't subsidies & private investment from carbon burning to wind & solar & other renewable energy technologies.

Also expect clean energy technologies to make even more people even more money -- Bill Gates move over -- during this 21st Century already upon us.

Clean, sustainable, competitively-priced energy is essential to the health & longevity of an advanced civilization, not to mention mother earth.
