Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
offshore wind probably costs double what (reaonably well-run) nuclear costs today, on a per MWh basis.

But it will still cost the same in 20 years (or probably much less, as economies of scale kick in and operating costs go down some more), and requires no cooling water, no mining of uranium in far away places, no costly decommissioning, and no waste to store.

It's not an unreasonable trade off. Both are needed.
