Item Details

Energy is one of the major issues of our time. As the world's population increases, and as our living standards rise, we are using more and more energy. Can that energy be produced in a clean and sustainable way? This series explains the technology and economics of energy. It also looks at the social and environmental impact of the ways in which we produce and distribute it through the world. Nuclear Power explores the energy we can produce by splitting atoms in a controlled reaction. This clean way of producing electricity was developed during the last century. But the complex processes involved carry high risks and scientists have not solved the major and long-term problem of disposing of nuclear waste safely. This book explains the technology and investigates the impact of nuclear power, as well as assessing the part it might play in providing energy in the future. Book jacket.
