Summary
Special Publication Date: 10 September 2007 Australia is at a crossroads: do we need to embrace a nuclear future? In Reaction Time, Ian Lowe examines the science and the politics of nuclear power, as well as the feasible alternatives in an era of global warming. Lowe discusses his one-time belief in nuclear power and what led to the faltering of that belief. He engages with the leading environm- entalists, like James Lovelock, who advocate going nuclear, as well as with the less savoury aspects of the Australian politicking. He discusses whether other countries might need to use nuclear power, even if Australia doesn't. He offers an authoritati- ve survey of the leading alternatives for Australia - from h̀ot rocks' to c̀lean coal'. Above all, he explains why taking the nuclear option would be a decisive step in the wrong direction - economically, environmentally, politically and socially
