If we add up ALL the costs of nuclear power plants, we could then understand why it is too expensive to consider. To understand all the costs we must add them ALL up. We need to start with the cost of mining the element, of building the plants, the cost of human lives who are affected by the mining and the disposal of waste, the moth-balling of the nuclear plants given that they have a life of 20 years or less, the litigation from the life and environmental impacts, and the storing of the spent fuel that will outlast many generations and probably the storage facility.
Nuclear is a distraction, and if we go down that path we will not invest what we need to in renewable energy. Nuclear Power is not worth it!!!
