That is a huge price! I guess I'm not too surprised since it's one of the first of it's ind to be dismantled. I'm all for nuclear power though as it's still the safest, cleanest, cheapest, and most reliable form of power we have. It's just too bad that even when an accident happens that's all you hear about is the dangers. Kind of like plane crashes getting headline news even though it's much safer then you driving to the airport in your car/bus/train. I wish the plant was still active and we could kite in the heated water. What a story to tell huh?!
