I prefer Coal over Nuclear with the way so many do things at their plants. Learn a few things from people who work at power plants, and Coal is much better than Nuclear. It has less bio-chemical hazards and doesn't 'have' to be maintained so "precisely".
If the French safely do 60+% of their power using nuclear power, surely we can in the US. Especially if liquid thorium reactor dev gets more backing. Such reactors can be made to self-regulate, slowing reaction as they get hotter.
