Pricing nuclear out of the energy future?

With costs rising and fears still raw after the Fukushima crisis, nuclear's place in the energy mix is under considerable danger.

The costs of nuclear power are rising in developed countries, where fossil fuel and renewable energy prices are stable or falling, suggesting present proposals for a major program of new investment are ill-advised.

Overall, the picture is one of uncertainty about nuclear costs, but a clear upward trajectory is evident in developed countries, urging a re-think on construction plans in Britain, the United States, France, Canada, Finland and Poland.
