A well-documented account of the nuclear industry in Canada illustrated with lively cartoons.

Abstract:  An up-to-date, well-documented account of the nuclear industry in Canada, illustrated with lively cartoons; informative, but easy reading. It asks relevant questions: "Is the nuclear establishment "falling apart?"; "Is the CANDU so safe?"; "How is the CANDU different?"; "Should Canada be involved in a continental energy policy?"; and "Should Canada export nuclear technology?" The author discusses the hazards of the mining and refining of uranium, of low-level radiation emissions, "management" of high-level radiocative wastes, thermal pollution, accident probability and human fallibility. She discusses also the economics of nuclear power and whether it produces net energy or may be the cause of an energy crisis. She describes the growing world-wide controversy over the nuclear industry and some of the movements involved and concludes by listing some alternatives and asserting that "We must decide".
