I am not anti nuclear . And whataboutism is not intellectually honest.

Nuclear waste is a problem that can't be ignored, a half life for 5000 years means engineers need to figure out how to turn waste into something beneficial or harmless.

Edit: I am not anti nuclear power. In it's short usage on this planet it is demonstrably safer than coal and natural gas. But that doesn't make it problem free.

Still waiting for nuclear power to figure out a long term solution to it's waste problem.

That problem alone can't be ignored and in a lot of people's eyes, outweighs the benefits.
