University of Minnesota Press, Minneapolis, 1970, 273 pages, ISBN: 0816605815This book is based upon a symposium, "Nuclear Power and the Public," which was held at the University of Minnesota on October 10 and 11, 1969. The meeting was a timely one, judging from the nationwide attention it attracted and the continuing and lively public interest in the many issues raised and discussed. Yet, much of the material covered had already been of concern for decades. Certainly since the early days of the Manhattan Project, the dissemination of radioactivity into the environment from atomic energy activities has received considerable attention from planners, administrators, and others responsible for the activities, all of whom had public safety in mind. In the mid-fifties, many scientists from outside the atomic energy field began to direct their attention to the potential effects of dissemination of radioactivity into the environment, particularly as related to fallout from weapons testing. Then, in the sixties, the rising potential of nuclear energy as a power source began to start widespread concerns among many segments of the populace. This phase of development is a particularly intense one because it is reinforced by a general concern about many kinds of pollutants and by a serious questioning concerning the meaningfulness of new technologies to the lives of individuals and the effects of such technologies upon environmental quality.Basic information about reactors Discussion of bray's paper Ecological considerations in siting nuclear power plants: the problem of long-term biotic effects The regulation of man-made radiation in the biosphere Effects of heated water from nuclear plants on aquatic life Environmental monitoring and surveillance Standards of radiation protection and their implications for the public's health Discussion of papers between pages 3 and evaluation of health hazards to the public associated with nuclear power plant operations Discussion of papers The risk benefit calculus in nuclear power licensing Federal preemption of regulation of releases of radionuclides from nuclear power plants: a legal history and rationale Policies affecting the energy needs of society Industrial energy resources Nuclear power: benefits and risks Nuclear power: benefits and risks Discussion of papers
