Synopsis: The world-renowned antinuclear activist's "expertly argued" (The Guardian) case against nuclear energy.
In a world torn apart by wars over oil, politicians have increasingly begun to look for alternative energy sources—and their leading choice is nuclear energy. Among the myths that have been spread over the years about nuclear-powered electricity are that it does not cause global warming or pollution, that it is inexpensive, and that it is safe.
Helen Caldicott's look at the actual costs and environmental consequences of nuclear energy belies the incessant barrage of nuclear industry propaganda. Caldicott "reveals truths," Martin Sheen has said, "that confirm we must take positive action now if we are to make a difference." In fact, nuclear power contributes to global warming; the true cost of nuclear power is prohibitive, with taxpayers picking up most of the tab; there's simply not enough uranium in the world to sustain nuclear power over the long term; and the potential for a catastrophic accident or a terrorist attack far outweighs any benefits. Concluding chapters detail alternative sustainable energy sources that are the key to a clean, green future.
About the Author: The world's leading spokesperson for the antinuclear movement, Dr. Helen Caldicott is a Nobel Peace Prize nominee and the recipient of the 2003 Lannan Prize for Cultural Freedom. A bestselling author, Caldicott is the co-founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility and president of the Nuclear Policy Research Institute. She divides her time between Australia and the United States.
