Nuclear power generation is viewed very differently in different countries with a surprising lack of consensus on its overall benefit.
As an innovation is adopted and matures, more is learned about its advantages, and disadvantages. Over time, a consensus tends to be reached about its overall benefit, based on the nature and extent of the advantages and, often more importantly, about the disadvantages.
In nuclear power, this does not seem to have happened.
