Your blind optimism isn't fooling anyone.

You say "nuclear is more expensive" it's not more expensive than wind that doesn't work at night covered by batteries that are unaffordable. There's no way to build enough batteries to cover the power that could be produced by a nuclear plant at night, cost less than a nuclear power plant and last 40 or 50 years.
What you say may be true.Whether or not you can sell people on nuclear is probably the sticking point.
