Nuclear Phaseout

Westinghouse reacting to the "Nuclear Phaseout"

The company expanded by about 5,000 new hires over the last five years on predictions of a nuclear renaissance in the making. The cuts, Westinghouse CEO said, are a result of slowed demand for nuclear power around the world following the 2011 Fukushima meltdown, as well as a worldwide economy still struggling to find its way out of a recession.

The writing is on the wall, solar is 3cents to 8 cents per kWH, and the long term nuke of new nuke is 62 cent to 92 cents.  

Sorry, that a clear winner.     Solar wins, nuke loses.    Goodbye and good riddance.
