Kicking the Carbon Habit

Saw a reprint yesterday of an Op-ed written by William Sweet, in which he called for greater use of nuclear power in bridging our energy needs.

Sweet is the author of a new book entitled, Kicking the Carbon Habit: Global Warming and the Case for Renewable Energy and Nuclear Energy. Only a couple of reviews up on Amazon so far, but they are quite positive.

It seems plain that this will be an interesting & well thought out book, especially given the fact that the author has married the cause of renewable energy with a call for reexamination of nuclear energy. Another book that I'll have to have a look at.

Interesting sidenote: while typing out the first sentence in this post, I noticed that the song I happened to be grooving to was OMD's "Electricity". Here are the lyrics to that song.
