Format: Paperback
How can you trust anything this lady says when she can't get even get her units right. In the opening statement of her book, and in the paperback description, she says that a trillion Curies of tritium were released, when the real release was a trillion Bequerels.

Now I caught a fish this summer, a lake trout, and it was just a little guy at 12 inches (0.3 meters) long. You'd look at me really funny if I were to say that it was 12,000,000km long, or about 40 times the distance from the earth to the moon. Now Curries and Bequerels are both unit of radioactivity, but 1Cu = 37,000,000,000Bq, so this lady, in essence, just claimed she caught a 40 light-second lake trout.

So, how can you trust someone to tell you the truth, in a logical, factual, sensical way - how can you trust someone's "expert" opinion - when she doesn't even understand the basics of the topic she is campaigning against. Wake up Helen, if you want to be taken seriously, smarten up, sit down, and learn a thing or two about your subject before you rush to take up arms against it.

Very investigative, if it's all true we should be more concerned that we currently are. I live in a province that derives 50% of its electricity from nuclear power so this was helpful for my own learning. Content is referenced so you can explore more.

Format: Hardcover
This book is an insight into the disturbed mud of anti-nuclear thinking. No deceptive phrase is ignored, no wild exaggeration is avoided, no debunked mythology is too painfully untrue to be spewed out, no unscientific study is left to gather the dust it should. In short, this book is about the irrational phobia of one woman and her tireless campaign to infect others with as much bad thinking as she can.

Helen Caldicott's book is definitely not the answer to anything, unless the question is "How can I start my campfire?"

Dr. Helen Caldicott, has written another incredible book! In her magnificent book, Helen shows us:

·Why the claim that nuclear energy is clean and green is very misleading.

·How dangereous it is for the individuals involved in the production of the fuel for nuclear reactors and how devastating it can be for the environment.

·That nuclear energy is not nearly as affordable or competitive with other energies as we have been led to believe.

·The possibility of a meltdown at any nuclear power plant currently running is very real, and that there have been several very close calls in recent years, putting literally thousands if not millions of peoples' lives at risk.

·How nuclear power plants can contribute to the proliferation of nuclear weapons!!

On a brighter note, we learn that:

·Renewable energy promises much more in the way of generating electricity for the world than the nuclear folks would have us believe.

·There is enough wind just between the Rocky Mountains and the Mississippi River to meet the electricity needs of the entire U.S., three times over.

·Impressive advances in photovoltaic technology, which generates sunlight directly into electricity, have been made in recent years.

Compelling, well written and easy to read, I highly recommend "Nuclear Power Is Not The Answer," in which Helen explains clearly how expensive nuclear energy actually is and always will be! Certainly a must read for everyone!
