Abstract

Economic forecasts can generally at best merely emphasize significant tendencies. Attempts to account for turning points or other specifics, even (or perhaps especially) when they emerge from computer models, are usually foolhardy endeavors. But the future decline of nuclear power, which is projected here, is supported by evidence that peak levels have been reached in the past, and that the next 15 years will witness an inexorable working out of a chain of dismal events embodied in three decades of massive commitments to a flawed technology.
