Anyone who is interested in the future of our world should read this book. It is filled with useful comparisons of the impacts to the environment made by different types of energy sources. It follows many of these sources from cradle to grave. It is eye-opening to learn about how much difference their is in toxic waste, environmental impact and human safety associated with each type of energy source.
If Mr. Nash had actually read Ms. Cravens book, he would have learned the answers to his accusations against nuclear power. Unfortunately, much of America's knowledge about nuclear energy comes from sound bites like his that are actually hype that is not founded on solid, scientific research. It is only rhetoric used to inflame people, and get them to reject nuclear power without actually learning about it.
If you want to learn the truth about energy, this book is an easy to understand, superbly researched, educational jem for anybody who wants to have a well-rounded overview. If you are truly interested in creating a cleaner, more sustainable world, I would strongly recommend that you read this book.
