Lucky Accident 6 2, 12:58am

[ But how do we go about doing that? ]

By requiring an insurance. That insurance payment would become part of the price.

[ If there is a large cost of insurance based on risk, there might not be the same level of competition, which could bring forth inefficiencies in the market. ]

Well, if one nuclear pop would cost about 6 trillion EURos and there are hundreds of reactors, then the fossil fuels industry is responsible for about 1000+ trillion EUR / USD.
So I'd call it a horse race.

And yes, if the risks are too high, it makes perfect sense to have a slower development rate.
