Abstract or Brief Description

Over the past decade, the cost of renewable energy like solar and wind has dropped substantially, while the cost of nuclear energy has risen – yet, in the United States, the large corporate owners of nuclear reactors are subsidized to the teeth. This research examines how their differential capitalized power is nourished and boosted, often through corruption, and how this process undermines consumers and risks the future of humanity.
