Toshiba, owner of Westinghouse Nuclear is about to be delisted from the Tokyo Stock Exchange due to massive losses building four nuclear units in the United States. Westinghouse Nuclear has already filed for bankruptcy.

Looks like nuclear is NOT coming back.

Just because the US doesn't use nuclear to a great extent doesn't mean it isn't an important source of energy. France derives more than 75% of its power from nuclear energy.

For those interested, I recommend the feature-length documentary about the history and future of nuclear power titled Pandora's Promise, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival a few years ago.

France has done a turn-around and plans to phase-out its nuclear plants, as any rationally-led country would do, considering the extreme danger they pose, in the world upheavals of the near-future.
