Ted - excellent points. The other fact is that if the polls are correct and the public generally favors nuclear in the form that already exists, effort to add additional layers of safety or redundancy are done at the behest of a minority of people. It is quite possible that at least part of that minority has an underlying purpose of adding cost to nuclear energy.

There are at least three types of people who have that motive.
1. People that just do not like energy systems
2. People for whom additional cost means additional revenue - that money disappears into some rat's pocket
3. People who sell other forms of energy. A low cost, clean competitor is their WORST nightmare and one that needs to be beaten at all costs (from their point of view.)
