Bzzt, wrong. Building *yesterday's* plant designs today is more  
expensive, but only barely when inflation adjusted. The aforementioned  
thorium reactors are orders of magnitude less.  Larger scale plants  
with newer designs are also less.

Tired of jousting with you on this.  Most of your points are more or  
less right, but the conclusion appears to border on dogmatic, and I  
don't have time for that today.  Maybe sone other time.

With respect,
