Rachel Carson wrote Silent Spring. This book is about silent spring, silent summer, silent fall, and silent winter. Asleep at the Geiger Counter vigorously exposes the destructive sweep of nuclear scams and frauds. It documents why nuclear programs mean cancer everywhere, birth defects forever, the uncontrolled proliferation of nuclear weapons, increased chance of nuclear war, the undermining of our national defense, the loss of civil liberties, and unending multi-billion dollar subsidies which have been bleeding us white, while actually delaying genuine energy independence. Responsible energy policies can give us a golden age of environmental and economic benefits, a more peaceful world, and conditions which will help rich and poor alike. We are getting the opposite of all that, sanctimoniously shrouded with a cloak of big lies. Some of those lies are so brazen, they violate the most basic laws of physics and engineering. This is explained in simple language. The book is written from the point of view of an an engineer who has been on the front line of varied research design and development for 42 years, and also on the front line of ardent environmental activism. Asleep at the Geiger Counter unveils frequently censored material, and much that has been forgotten by the present generation. Personal encounters and anecdotes add a touch of humor to this grim topic.
