The disaster at Fukushima last year reignited the nuclear debate and left many wondering if the risks involved in nuclear power were worth the benefits. What Will Work? delves even deeper into the issue by questioning the validity of nuclear power’s supposed cost-free and carbon-free advantages. Maria Carvalho thinks the book provides an illuminating analysis on a rather opaque and technocratic industry. What Will Work? Fighting Climate Change with Renewable Energy, Not Nuclear Power. Kristin Shrader-Frechette. Oxford University Press. December 12, 2011.
