Nuclear Or Not? Does Nuclear Power Have a Place in a Sustainable Energy Future? Energy, Climate and the Environment Edited

by David Elliott



Palgrave Macmillan, March 2007



The issue of nuclear energy excites strong emotions and there are widely differing views as to whether nuclear power can or should make a major contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. With the nuclear issue back on the agenda worldwide, this highly topical collection steers a path through these controversies, presenting the views of proponents of nuclear expansion, examining the challenges that face them and exploring the arguments of those who support alternative approaches.
