Caldicott, in concert with a large number of scientists, makes the case for much greater scrutiny of the claim by the nuclear power industry that nuclear power is clean and green. From the data presented here by Caldicott and her team of experts, the truth about nuclear power is more likely that it has never been clean, and when all aspects of the power generation are taken into account, it is far from green in its carbon footprint.

A barrage of frightening statistics and figures, which debunk the idea that nuclear power solves global warming, or indeed anything else. Delves deeply into the peripheral consequences of generating nuclear power, including the creation and release of radioactive isotopes into our environment. Much better public speaker than this book would suggest. ( )
