Power Production: What are the Risks?

Power Production: What are the Risks?

by J.H.Fremlin (Author), N.H.Lipman (Editor), J.H.Fremlin (Author), N.H.Lipman (Editor)


In the wake of the Chernobyl disaster and other recent accidents, attention has focused on the risks attributed to nuclear power. In this timely and accessible work, Fremlin considers the dangers to public health associated with all methods of power production, including radiation risks and the effects of burning coal and oil. He maintains that the hazards of nuclear power production are far less worrisome than the consequences of having insufficient power supplies. His work represents a provocative and thoughtful assessment of the power production industry, and an insightful look at the role of nuclear power in our lives.
