Unless society adopts a convention that power needn't be available at all times, then part-time power sources like wind and solar will always be a wet dream. Despite years of dogma asserting otherwise, rational assessment of the available evidence suggests that no practical alternatives to nuclear exist at this point in time.

There are however better options than water-cooled reactors, as we discussed here!

Tidal power can give continuous coverage and other nuclear systems are safer.
