Summary
"Helen Caldicott reveals in this look at the costs and consequences of nuclear energy, the facts belie the incessant barrage of nuclear industry propaganda. In fact, nuclear power actually contributes to global warming; the true cost of nuclear power is prohibitive, with taxpayers picking up most of the tab; there's simply not enough uranium in the world to sustain nuclear power over the long term; and the potential for a catastrophic accident or a terrorist attack far outweighs any benefits."--Jacket
