Garbage Land: On the Secret Trail of Trash

Garbage Land: On the Secret Trail of Trash Lowest new price: $4.36
Lowest used price: $0.01
List price: $24.95
Author: Elizabeth Royte

DESCRIPTION: Like the bestselling Fast Food Nation, GARBAGE LAND lifts the lid off a world we take for granted, revealing its complicated, surprising underbelly. In this highly unconventional travel book, Elizabeth Royte leads the reader on a cultural tour guided and informed by the things she throws away. Structured around four separate journeys--those of Royte’s household trash, compostable matter, recyclables, and sewage--GARBAGE LAND is a literary investigation of the truly dirty side of consumption. Royte melds science, anthropology, and a strong dose of clear-headed analysis in her appraisal of America’s relationship with its garbage, examining the uncomfortable subject of waste in much the same way Mary Roach’s Stiff tackled corpses. By showing us what really happens to the things we’ve "disposed of," Royte reminds us that our decisions about consumption and waste have a very real impact--and that, like it or not, the garbage we create will always be with us.

Understanding Radioactive Waste

Understanding Radioactive Waste Lowest new price: $12.93
Lowest used price: $4.00
List price: $12.95
Author: Raymond L. Murray

Today, the world faces two major problems: potential scarcity of energy and the pollution of the environment. How countries handle these problems can impact the quality of life for their citizens, their environment, and their economic prosperity. One answer to these problems may be nuclear power; currently, there are over 400 nuclear reactors operating in the world, with 109 of those in the United States. But, what is to be done with the spent nuclear fuel and other wastes created by nuclear power? Approval for new nuclear electric plants and continued use of existing ones may depend on safely disposing of these dangerous wastes. In making decisions about power plants, it is important that citizens and lawmakers know the nature of the waste problem and be able to distinguish opinions, feelings, and myths from the facts.

Unfortunately, much of what is written is rhetoric intended to frighten or soothe. There is a wealth of technical literature, but it is often written in highly complex technical terms. Reports on plans and progress are in formal government-ese, making them hard to translate into plain English. In this new edition of Understanding Radioactive Waste, Dr. Raymond Murray explains clearly the origin and nature of nuclear by-products; provides facts and figures about nuclear wastes and the actions being planned on a national basis; provides perspective on the safety of waste isolation systems; and distinguishes knowledge from opinion whenever possible, in an unbiased and candid manner.

The author rejects exaggerated statements about the waste problem at both poles of the debate -- assertions by proponents that it is merely a matter of politics, by opponents that a technical solution is impossible.

This book -- through its straightforward writing and informative illustrations -- helps you understand such nuclear topics as uranium, radioactivity, radiation, and fission, along with the role of materials, chemical processes, and geology in the treatment and long-term handling of wastes. In addition, the human side of radioactive waste, from the biological impacts to the societal attitudes, are covered.

A proven textbook and resource, this latest edition of Understanding Radioactive Waste provides new information on transportation of spent fuel and other nuclear wastes; high-level radioactive waste regulations; licensing of the proposed repository at Yucca Mountain, Nevada; and protecting nuclear facilities against terrorist attacks.

Dr. Murray believes that an informed public makes the best decisions. Read Understanding Radioactive Waste, and be informed.
