Here's the reason Nuclear isn't supported as much as everyone on Reddit wants it to be: they have a history of not reaching completion.

This means it isn't a safe investment. Overnight and construction costs are unstable and rise above projections. At a certain stage of inflated costs it becomes more profitable to abandon the project as a company's or government's 20 year ROI becomes a 50 year ROI.

Concrete isn't getting less expensive any time soon.
