Coming Soon: Nuclear Roulette

Energy is one of the biggest problems facing the industrialized human race. In recent years the world has seen a growth in the use of renewable power sources such as wind and solar, but it’s not enough to outpace the rising demand for electricity.

This conundrum has encouraged many to look to nuclear energy. Its proponents say it’s safe, clean, and creates no greenhouse gases — but Nuclear Roulette, a new book by the editor emeritus of Earth Island Journal, Gar Smith, says these claims are nonsense. The subtitle says it all, “The Truth about the Most Dangerous Energy Source on Earth.”

Nuclear Roulette is available for 25% off this week.

Booklist calls Nuclear Roulette a “thorough, insightful dissection of nuclear power’s weaknesses,” and Kirkus Reviews praises Smith for “lay[ing] out an impressively researched narrative, drawing on facts from a wide range of sources, and mak[ing] a strong case that will be hard for even nuclear-power advocates to dismiss out of hand.”

Nuclear Roulette is a great introduction to the failures of atomic energy, but don’t take our word for it! Listen to author Gar Smith make the argument himself, in a conversation with David Swanson here, and one with natural health advocate Gary Null here.
