Description: How to control nuclear weaponry, and how to provide acceptable energy for the future -- these are the two main points of this book. Garwin and Charpak lay out a comprehensive, feasible plan for reducing the arsenals of the nuclear powers, and for preventing other nations from joining the club. But they also show how important nuclear energy is to our future.

Almost 20% of the world's energy is now provided by commercial reactors (close to 80% in France). Meanwhile, fossil fuels -- coal, oil, and gas -- have the potential to transform the earth's climate, causing great human and economic losses. The authors examine why people are more afraid of nuclear power than of fossil fuels, even though the latter cause more deaths and environmental damage. And they show the potential for extracting uranium from the sea.

A provocative and stimulating book that will cause much debate.
