This book provides critical analysis and historical evidence to refute the claims of the nuclear power industry that nuclear power can alleviate the build-up of greenhouse gases and reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil. It also reveals the hazards of further proliferation of nuclear weapons from the growing quantities of plutonium generated by existing nuclear power plants throughout the world.

Prepared under the auspices of a scientifically respected institute, "The Nuclear Power Deception" exposes the flagrant misrepresentation of nuclear power as "to cheap to meter" and environmentally benign and safe by government and industry officials in the 1940s and 1950s when they had ample evidence to the contrary. Instead they suppressed that evidence, much of which is presented in this book.

Essential background reading for students, teachers, peace and environmental activists, and others concerned about the threat nuclear power continues to pose for the future of humankind.
