Meltdown Summary


Meltdown: Collapse of the Nuclear Dream by Crispin Aubrey

The theme of this book is that the nuclear dream is over; that the British atomic industry, which once aimed to build 100 reactors a year by the year 2000, has been dealt a body-blow by a combination of people power (public concern about safety and the environment) and business power (the hard-nosed calculators of the City's investment banks). In providing an account of the industry's failure to fulfil its promise of an endless supply of cheap, safe energy, the book also addresses the question of what, if nuclear fuel is abandoned, will take its place. The author's previous book, "Who's Watching You", told the story of the "ABC" Official Secrets Act case, in which he was one of the three defendants.
