The Nuclear Energy Option: An Alternative for the 90's
by Bernard L. Cohen
Publisher: Plenum Press 1990
Number of pages: 338
University of Pittsburgh physicist Cohen provides accessible, scientifically sound risk analyses of the energy options that he believes must be exercised in the next 10 years. This update of his work on public energy policy stands opposed to the stack of recent greenhouse effect-oriented titles by proposing more nuclear power plants (including fuel reprocessing plants) as statistically the safest, most environmentally sound solution.
