Innuclear energy comprised nearly 60 percent of U.S. emission. Ferguson discusses how nuclear power plants work, what the dangers of nuclear power plants are, what the relationship to nuclear weapons materials are, how we should confront the risk of terrorist attacks on nuclear power plants, et cetera.

My most recent book, The Political Economy of Electricity: Progressive Capitalism and the Struggle to Build a Sustainable Power Sector (Praeger, ), is about the future of the electricity sector, in which the failure of nuclear power plays a significant role.
