This book is a real eye opener and will cause you to question some of your most basic ideas about American society.
I agree this book should be read by all Americans and really, all citizens of the globe!
I don't agree with the reviewer who says she (Helen) is crazy for suggesting some energy other than nuclear be used for electricity. On the contrary, it is crazy to embark on any other nuclear pursuits at this time for a number of reasons. The biggest is the danger factor which is very real and has been underestimated and underplayed for decades. Just read about Canada's now polluted Ottawa River from a 51 year old reactor and you will know how serious this is. And this type of risk is not only very real, it is all too common. Another reason it is a bad idea to commission additional nuclear power plants is the very real known fact that uranium is becoming increasingly more and more scarce and it is estimated that our usable supply will likely be exhausted by as early as 2025.
I will say that so far this new edition of Dr. Caldicott's book is a bit too technical (chapter 2 for example has just too many references to percentages, years, amounts of co2 being released by cows, etc) for my taste and consequently the book is proving to be a bit more laborious to read than I recall the previous edition being which seemed to me to be more personal as the author reflected on her own life, how she was affected and so on.
I would highly recommend this book, however I encourage reading the earlier edition, copyright 1992, as well.

I loved this and would recommend it to anyone looking to help fix some of our problems created by living in this unsustainable fashion.Published on June 5, 2012 by Marquesa Aguilar
This one is rational as she sticks to areas where she has some knowledge. Does a good job of highlighting problems without offering effective solutions. Read morePublished on June 21, 2010 by R. E Westgard
