Nuclear vs renewable energy?

This video briefy sets out arguments for proceeding with each of these sources of electric energy to replace fossil fuel produced electricity, It concludes with a histogram that sets out the relative costs per kwh for nuclear as opposed to wind and solar power. Bill Gates pins his hopes on a yet-to-be realised new mode of nuclear energy generation, although he does not refer to the eventual depletion of uranium fuel.  As ususal, the issue of links to other predicaments than CO2 emissions facing our civilisation are not made – population growth; economic growth; corporate power over political systems; military conflict; resource depletion; industrial agriculture, soil quality; species loss; water and food supplies; social injustice, are just a few that spring to mind!
