Nuclear Power and Energy Security in Asia by Rajesh (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore) Basrur
  

Synopsis

Nuclear Power and Energy Security in Asia by Rajesh (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore) Basrur

The rising demand for energy, the higher costs of oil and gas, and the association of fossil fuels with adverse climate change have all brought a renewed interest in nuclear energy. Nuclear power, however, is itself controversial, because of its costs, its environmental effects and the security risks it poses. This book discusses these critical issues surrounding nuclear power in relation to Asia. It discusses also the politics of nuclear power and the activities of civil society organisations concerned about nuclear issues. Throughout the book the perspectives are included of both proponents and opponents of nuclear power on the key controversial issues.
