10. Social stratification is a major problem with nuclear energy - on a number of levels

Security threats have resulted in nuclear plants being turned into private prisons complete with paramilitary guards armed with automatic weapons and sawed off shotguns: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=show_mesg&forum=102&topic_id=4057045&mesg_id=4057045

Nuclear plants are no longer part of an open society.
Who's going to want to work in that kind of environment?
Don't expect whistleblowers to come forward anymore.

It used to be thought that cheap nuclear energy would raise everyone's standard of living,
but we now know the energy they make is more expensive than wind,
and it will be more expensive than solar before the decade is out.
This will just increase the disparity between rich and poor.
