Eco-heresy

April 25th, 2005 by Editor B

Stewart Brand has written an interesting article on how ideas within the environmental movement may change on four key topics. I’m sold on the first two (overpopulation, urbanization) but I’ve still got major reservations about the second two (GMOs, nuclear power).

  1. James Aach Says:

    You might be interested to know that Stewart Brand has recently endorsed a techno-thriller novel about the American nuclear power industry, written by a longtime nuclear engineer (me). This book provides an entertaining and accurate portrait of the nuclear industry today and how a nuclear accident would be handled. It is called “Rad Decision”, and is currently running as a serial at RadDecision.blogspot.com. There is no cost to readers.

    All sides of the nuclear power debate will find items to like, and dislike, within Rad Decision. I’m not sure myself what the future of nuclear energy should be. What I am sure of is that we will make better decisions if we understand what nuclear energy is right now.

    If you find it valuable, as Mr. Brand did, I’d appreciate it if you would spread the word. The more readers I get, the better.
