Mad Science THE NUCLEAR POWER EXPERIMENT Joseph Mangano
http://www.orbooks.com/catalog/mad-science/ Foreword by Alec Baldwin
"Joe Mangano is the constant, tireless voice that has helped keep me
linked to reports from the front lines of the battle to expose the
staggering risks to public health posed by nuclear power . . . Joe has
been one of the most dedicated, intelligent and even-handed public
activists I have ever known. He has also proven to be one of the most
effective, on a battlefield where gains are measured in inches, if not
centimeters." --from the foreword by Alec Baldwin
ABOUT THE BOOK
Will Americans once again play nuclear roulette?
Just one year after the Fukushima meltdown, all 54 reactors in Japan
have been closed, and may never be restarted. Germany recently closed
several reactors, and will shutter them all within a decade. Italy
revoked its pledge to build new reactors, keeping that nation
nuclear-free. All these decisions are based on the understanding that
reactors are extremely dangerous and expensive.
In the U.S., the remnants of the once-overwhelmingly powerful nuclear
lobby are making their last stand for "clean" nuclear energy. The
sixty-year-old vision of power "too cheap to meter" (words originally
uttered by a banker promoting the industry) is back. While other
countries end their reliance on nuclear energy, Americans contemplate
its revival, even as existing reactors, which produce a fifth of U.S.
electricity, pass retirement age and are corroding.
In Mad Science, Joseph Mangano strips away the near-smothering layers
of distortions and outright lies that permeate the massive propaganda
campaigns on behalf of nuclear energy. He explores the history of the
industry, with its origins in the Manhattan Project, through its
heightening promotion during the Cold War and its entwinement with
Mad Science includes an account of nuclear accidents and meltdowns and
their consequences, from Chernobyl to Santa Susana and beyond; as well
as a point-by-point refutation of pro-nuke arguments. Atomic energy is
unsafe - it deals with staggeringly poisonous substances at every
stage of its creation - un-economical in the extreme and impractical.
