Is Nuclear Power Our Salvation? Can It Power Our World Without Adding to Global Warming?
Could it be that most of what we fear about nuclear power stations is wrong? Perhaps scare tactics from the coal and oil industries?
Top environmentalists and global warming researchers such as James Lovelock have been urging the countries of the world to re-examine the risks of nuclear power when compared to the known costs of global warming and environmental degradation.
Now film director Robert Stone has created a riveting Sundance Film Festival winning documentary explaining our options in a rapidly changing and warming world in a fascinating exploration of this question.
