Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a good source of various energy policies not only in Asian but also world countries.
For sustaining development of each country, choice of major energy sourcetypes in own best-mix policy of available and promising energy sourcesis of key problem. We now see the air-pollution problem in Chinaseriously dangerous, because of burning fossil (especially coals) forrapid industrialization/civilization. As sited in the book, China (aswell as India) plans a huge number of nuclear power plants (uraniumfission reactors) diversely in the country. If the plan would beattained, they may resolve somehow the air-pollution problem by PM2.5dusts, SOX, NOX and CO2, etc. However, they will have other big risks as Chernobyl or Fukushima-like accidents/disasters and difficultradioactive spent fuel disposals. How other Asian countries, especiallyin south-east, should make best-rational energy policy is of greatconcern.
Victor Christianto suggests that wind-power plants should be encouraged to extend in Asian countries to be major naturalelectric-energy source. The role of solar panels will be small in hisview. The south-east Asian countries have a great diversity of naturalresources as plants, insects and animals which contribute to conservethe clean environment of our planet. We hope such gems be sustained with wisdom of human policy. The book by VC is a good reference/guideline to this end.

From the Author

I wrote this book to address some problems related to nuclear energy development in Asia. This book was written in particular for energy policy decision makers in various countries. The book emphasizes that considering that there are many problems caused by the use of nuclear power, then they should be phased out and replaced by renewable energy technologies. Wind energy especially should be considered seriously in the energy mix for the future.

Peer-reviewer's comments:
-  A very excellent, grand and important assessment of coming worldenergy need during the 21st century with risk and forseeableconsequences and the need for non-fission energy generators for thefuture.  LENR is mentioned briefly and lastly, but "the last shall befirst."  This consideration by Christianto is extremely important forstalling and correcting environmental effects of the global warming.  - by Dr. Reginald B. Little (redge_little@yahoo.com)
