Environmental campaigns increased global warming - the truth at last!, 26 Aug 2013
Mark Lynas deftly explains, as a committed environmentalist, that decades of anti-nuclear campaigning by environmental ingenues have led to a world dominated by coal burning plants. Global warming is more far worse than would have been the case had they and their naive organisations never existed. At last some real politic truth on this subject so crucial to mankind's future. If this is the only book you read this year it will be to the benefit of the human race - his 'all of the above' strategy for decarbonising the world's electricity generation is possibly the only credible plan for us to follow that does not resulting in catastrophic climate shift. As I write this comment, the South-western USA is tinder dry and the fire front has reached the Yosemite National park - just an outlier of what is to come should we not adopt the suggested strategy contained in this work.
