In this interview, author Gwyneth Cravens talks with the Bulletin’s Dawn Stover about why nuclear power should play a greater role in the response to climate change. Cravens describes her conversion from nuclear protester to nuclear supporter, and calls for expedited approval of reactor construction and new designs. She dismisses typical fears about radiation and nuclear waste as ignorance, and explains why she believes that changing people’s minds about nuclear power is not as difficult as it might seem.
