I have no doubt that wind will surpass nuclear. The idea of nuclear trying to compete with wind power brings to mind the image of a rising mass of yeasty loaf expanding out of reach of the desperate chefs, pushing all before it as it squeezes out of windows and through doorways. The nuclear enthusiasts screaming frantically "Don't let it get past 10%." They clutch impotently to the sticky clinging mass as it expands.
You are absolutely right about screaming bloody murder about price. Nukes cannot compete economically with wind, not over the long term. That needs to be broadcast in particular across North America. As far as nuclear being a threat, I am unconvinced. In North America wind plant is going up, nukes are not.
