Realistic? Just a different bunch of problems; arguably, worse problems. 
The article reads like yet another nuclear power industry puff-piece.

Most 100% renewable scenarios posit efficiencies which I find difficult 
to believe. Then, for example, the Sydney opera house cuts its power 
usage by 75% 
Maybe the experts do know what they're talking about.

In global warming, the nuclear power industry sees hopes of reviving 
their moribund technologies. Reality keeps raining on their parade.
