Nuclear - safe and clean, who knew?,
This review is from: Nuclear 2.0: Why A Green Future Needs Nuclear Power (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
Nuclear 2.0 is brilliantly written and provides a compelling case for the global expansion of nuclear power.
Lynas helps to break several of the taboos surrounding the industry including waste and in particular radiation, discussing reality and the public's misunderstanding of the concept, attacking persistent scaremongering from the media and green activists.
Lynas's accounts of the three major nuclear station accidents - Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and in particular Fukushima are excellent. He outlines the causation and consequences of the accident in detailed but understandable fashion (for someone with no prior understanding of how a power station functions).
Although I am slightly skeptical about some of the optimistic figures the author outlines in his conclusion for the worlds nuclear power potential - to steal a phrase from the book "let's dare to dream a little".
