The map showing the prices paid for electricity in Europe has some good information. The highest prices are in Denmark and Germany (29.08 and 25.28 cents per kwh). Denmark and Germany have both undertaken huge renewable energy programs. Electricity in France is only 13.84 cents/kwh and 75% of France's electricity comes from nuclear power.

What do you suppose the cost will be around Fukushima, once the tens of billions of dollars that will be required for the cleanup (which will take many years yet) will be?

Nuclear is great, so long as you don't bother calculating in the risk costs.
