Description
Global warming has forced countries around the world to invest in alternative energy sources. With this rethinking, nuclear energy is getting a second look, even from die-hard environmentalists. This important book discusses the benefits and drawbacks of this controversial, but clean and reliable, source of power. Case studies show how nuclear energy can be made safer and how new technologies are addressing some old concerns.
