As the dangers of nuclear power become ever more clear to the thinking portion of the population, new pressures will be applied to discontinuing the use of nuclear power for energy generation.
Coal and natural gas (along with hydro/wind/solar) will replace nuclear energy completely in the future.
Germany has commitments to eliminate nuclear power and Japan may also soon join that trend.
Nuclear power is by far the most toxic and dangerous form of energy production ever created.
And it last for many, many generations. Some radioactive nuclides in fuel products have extremely long half-lives.
