Nuclear energy is the cleanest, safest and most compact way to make electricity.
In her book, Campaigning for Clean Air, Meredith Angwin presents clear and well-referenced reasons for supporting nuclear energy. These sections of the book are based on her years of experience in energy research and on-site problem solving.
The book includes five easy-to-read, well-referenced “white papers” on nuclear power. These papers cover:
- Nuclear power for clean air
- Nuclear safety (normal operations)
- Analysis of the big accidents
- Nuclear energy for efficient land use
- Nuclear energy around the world
Meredith is available to give presentations on these topics, or embed selected topics into her workshops on nuclear advocacy.
