My current project for Chatham House
and the Sussex Energy Group
continues to evolve. What began as 'Managing Energy: Rethinking The Fundamentals'
is moving into ever more radical territory. I have now completed a working paper,
Beyond The Fire Age, that lays out the analysis concisely.
It will form the template for a book provisionally entitled Beyond The Fire Age: What We Do, How We Do It,
How We Can Do Better, now under way.
As a new generation of enthusiasts for plutonium and fast reactors hype the technology all over again,
let's not forget the grim truth we've known for decades.
Thanks to the generosity of my American friend and co-author Jim Harding,
we are making our book Plutonium 85
available here as a free download.
In 1977 the Council of Europe held a Colloquy on Energy and the Environment.
I presented a paper on 'The Nuclear Option: The Case Against', in writing and in
person. The case is now even stronger.
In 1978 the European Commission held public hearings on nuclear policy. I lamented
'The inability of nuclear energy to keep its promises'.
With the invaluable help of Josep 'Pep' Puig of the
Grup de Cientifics i Tècnics per un Futur No Nuclear in Barcelona,
we are able to offer Spanish readers a download of the
first edition of my book Nuclear Power in Spanish.
We have also added two dozen more speeches and articles;
do check the contents page for the latest additions.
My latest book, Keeping The Lights On: Towards Sustainable Electricity, is also available in paperback.
