Very convincing argument for the future of nuclear power,
This review is from: Nuclear 2.0: Why A Green Future Needs Nuclear Power (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
After teasing a friend who works in the nuclear industry with any number of stereotypes I was persuaded to read this short and brilliant book that combats several misconceptions that surround nuclear power.
Although slightly put off by the authors extravagant climate change scenarios his case for nuclear power is rather compelling.
He explains issues surrounding waste, radiation and discusses in detail the cause and effects of the accidents at Fukuhisma, Chernobyl and Three Mile Island. Whilst not downplaying them, he argues that the impacts of these tragic events are not as bad as certainly I had initially thought.
The author is clearly extremely passionate about nuclear and while it is important to take material such as this with a pinch of salt - the argument is extremely convincing and this is well worth a read.
