Contesting The Future Of Nuclear Power: A Critical Global Assessment Of Atomic Energy, Hardback Book

Contesting The Future Of Nuclear Power: A Critical Global Assessment Of Atomic Energy Hardback


This book provides a concise but rigorous appraisal about the future of nuclear power and the presumed nuclear renaissance.

It does so by assessing the technical, economic, environmental, political, and social risks related to all aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle, from uranium mills and mines to nuclear reactors and spent fuel storage facilities.

In each case, the book argues that the costs of nuclear power significantly outweigh its benefits.

It concludes by calling for investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency as a better path towards an affordable, secure, and socially acceptable future.The prospect of a global nuclear renaissance could change the way that energy is produced and used the world over.

Sovacool takes a hard look at who would benefit - mostly energy companies and manufacturers - and who would suffer - mostly taxpayers, those living near nuclear facilities, and electricity customers.

This book is a must-read for anyone even remotely concerned about a sustainable energy future, and also for those with a specific interest in modern nuclear power plants.
