Green party members aren't really friends with nature, cause I think that the word "green" comes from pot which they grow and smoke. Nuclear reactors are the only solution to the energy problem, at least until Fusion reactors are ready for commercial use.

Bad solution.  Fission reactors are dirty.  Just what do you propose to do with all that waste?  What, with terrorists running amok, fissile material is something you do not want to have floating all over the place either.  The solution IS nuclear though, and in the form of fusion, but not what you're thinking.  Open your eyes, look up to the skies, and see.

Solar power of course.  But cost effective with the current technology we have?

Not with current human technology, but improvements are on the way every day.  More research is needed for certain, and better storage mechanisms are always needed as batteries are absurdly inefficient, but it is the absolute best choice in the long run.  Plants have perfected solar power over hundreds of millions of years, and it works well enough for satelites.  The entire natural world is powered by the sun.  It's only a matter of time before it becomes efficient enough that costs can drop and the technology can be made more readily available.  That is, if people actually invest in it...
