Two brilliant books concerned with the morality intrinsic to energy policy. In Long Half-Life, Emeritus Professor of Science, Technology and Society Ian Lowe demolishes nuclear energy, arguing it is indivisible from the industry’s role in weaponry, and that the issue of waste has never been solved. Political philosopher Jeremy Moss’s Carbon Justice posits we have a responsibility to recognise and combat the moral harm done by the mining and exporting of our fossil fuels. Far from being a minor contributor to climate change, he contends, our massive exports of fossil fuels make us one of its key drivers.
