13. Yes really.

Expert: Nuclear Power Is On Its Deathbed

Which serves only to demonstrate that Cooper dreams the same dreams... and, of course, that anyone can be an "expert" if they hold the views you like.
Yes... those degrees in English and Sociology really make one an expert nuclear power and economics. Why oh why did I waste all those years on actual physics and econ courses? English and Sociology were much easier A's.

Nuclear giants RWE and E.ON drop plans to build new UK reactors

And other companies appear to be lining up to take their place. Not that either outcome would say anything about plants in the US.

Vogtle nuclear plant loan guarantees may not be finalized: NEI

Amd somehow in your imagination that supports the notion that both projects are "on the brink of death"? That must be a pretty big "brink".

U.S. Department of Energy must release Plant Vogtle loan guarantee credit subsidy data

And in your imagination, the only reason that a company would want to keep that data from public disclosure is because there's something in there that would keep them from getting the loan if the public knew about it... and the Obama administration is in on the deception?

Really?

And we can just ignore the flood of companies vying for new reactor builds in the next few years, right? They just haven't gotten the "brink" message.

He also says "As this drama unfolds, the collapse of global nuclear power continues" - which further demonstrates his illusion (and likely yours given your read on the UK reactors). The net global picture is almost entirely unchanged. Hardly a "collapse".
