This book addresses the risks, secrecy, and accidents associated with nuclear energy. It expresses the views of Greenpeace, an organization known for its strong advocacy of environmental protection. The opening section contains essays on security, reactor risks, and command and control of nuclear weapons written by specialists in those fields. The main part of the book is divided into five sections, each dealing with events of significance to nuclear energy, with an emphasis on nuclear accidents, during a decade from the 1940s through the 1980s. A concluding chapter provides Greenpeace’s perspective on the evolution of the nuclear age and suggestions for eliminating the risks posed by civilian and military applications of nuclear energy.
