Campaigning for Clean Air features anecdotes, examples and insights from many pro-nuclear advocates. This book will inspire your work for a clean energy future. Nuclear energy is the cleanest, safest and most compact way to make electricity.
In her book, Campaigning for Clean Air, Meredith Angwin presents clear and well-referenced reasons for supporting nuclear energy. These sections of the book are based on her years of experience in energy research and on-site problem solving.
The book includes five easy-to-read, well-referenced “white papers” on nuclear power. These papers cover:
- Nuclear power for clean air
- Nuclear safety (normal operations)
- Analysis of the big accidents
- Nuclear energy for efficient land use
- Nuclear energy around the world
Why this book?
This book is a little different. Campaigning for Clean Air has the subtitle: Strategies for Pro-Nuclear Advocacy. It’s about getting the pro-nuclear word out to the world.
Angwin’s fear is that with all the pro-nuclear books, pro-nuclear people will read the books and enjoy the books and then….Then what? We pro-nuclear people have to raise our voices to support nuclear power.
That is why Angwin wrote Campaigning for Clean Air. This book is about how to support nuclear energy, with some discussion (of course) about why to support it.
As one of Angwin’s friends said: “Your book is a guidebook, a sort of how-to.” Exactly right. How to write a letter to the editor. How to organize a rally. And everything in between.
In her chemistry career, Meredith led research to improve power plants and energy infrastructures. Her work included improvements and evaluations of nuclear plants, gas-fired plants, gas pipelines, geothermal power plants, hydro penstocks, coal plants, and geothermal energy.
She is inventor on several patents. Her consulting company worked with clients on corrosion control for the power industry.
What Others Are Saying
Nuclear is now gaining recognition as not only desirable but necessary in the effort to provide needed energy for the world in an environmentally responsible manner. Meredith’s book provides practical tools for nuclear advocates to ensure that our existing nuclear assets are preserved and that new nuclear power facilities are licensed. This book is a must read for anyone engaging with the public on
nuclear power issues. — Eugene S. Grecheck, Past President, American Nuclear Society
At last—a practical, clearly voiced guidebook to approaching nuclear power. I heartily endorse Meredith Angwin’s important guidebook about how to talk about the cleanest and safest source of base-load power we have. A scientist and a communications expert, her writing is direct and natural, fl ows well, and speaks directly to how people wishing to better support nuclear power can learn to spread the word. — Gwyneth Cravens, author of Power to Save the World: The Truth About Nuclear Energy
So many would-be pro-nuclear advocates stop before they even start, daunted by the success of the anti-nuclear movement and overwhelmed by the seemingly endless negative press about nuclear energy. Meredith’s book is the antidote to the “why bother?” mindset that has ossified the nuclear industry for decades. Her book demystifi es the advocacy process with no-nonsense advice, practical strategies, and step-by-step instructions for building an advocacy practice and achieving success. And don’t forget to share some brownies! — Andrea Jennetta, Publisher, Fuel Cycle Week
Turning enthusiasm into organized, responsible advocacy, Meredith Angwin has been on the forefront of nuclear advocacy for years and she shares her experiences and lessons learned. This is far more than a “how-to manual”; it is a life’s journey into greater understanding of how to responsibly address public concerns over nuclear power or any technically complex issue. — Dr. Dale E. Klein, Former Chairman, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission
Meredith Angwin’s Campaigning for Clean Air: Strategies for Pro Nuclear Advocacy brings me back to my own emergence as a nuclear advocate during the Vermont Yankee era. This book is a primer for nuclear advocacy, and a fascinating guidebook and educational tool.— Thomas P. Salmon, Governor of Vermont (1972–1977)
