I hope you are right. But there are some who push to delay ANY nuclear in the hope that fusion will some day be viable. That's like saying we should stop looking for gas since we'll one day have a ton of solar arrays Lol.

Well my thoughts about it are thus. Fusion reactions that produce more energy than they consume have been demonstrated. It's now more of an engineering problem than a science problem to scale it up to power plant size.

I believe the only nuclear that will be a game changer is fusion.  The fuel is plentiful enough and easy enough to come by that the EROI will be far past self sustaining.  If you're getting more energy out than it takes to build the plant and collect the fuel, that's something that you can work with.  

Doubly so when as I posted earlier, you can use that primary power source to produce energy dense liquid fuels that can be used for transportation...

In Topic: Ukraine Accuses Russia of Military Invasion, this could get interesting.

Reports/video of russian military convoys, including heavy armor, protected by attack helicopters headed towards the Ukrainian border.  Vehicles have "peacekeeping mission" painted on the side...

I believe it's because fission nuclear has the same limitations as hydro namely that it's only possible with fossil fuels to make concrete and steel and to mine all the fuel and other materials in bulk.

Talk about timing. This popped up in my feed right after I posted the above. Better explanation than I can give.
