We're thrilled to announce the release of Mark Lynas' book, Nuclear 2.0: Why A Green Future Needs Nuclear Power. Mark Lynas contributed his considerable expertise in climate change to Pandora's Promise, which then inspired him to write this new book.


In Nuclear 2.0, Lynas, the former Climate Advisor to the President, Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, Posits nuclear energy as an essential solution to avoiding catastrophic global warming. Using the latest International energy research and data, the book explains that with wind and solar still providing only about one percent of global primary energy, to expect these renewables to deliver all the world's power in the near future is "dangerously delusional". An educational and illuminating book, Nuclear 2.0 is essential reading for those seeking a solutions-based shift in the conversation on climate change.
