Professor Ian Lowe AO is uniquely qualified to tell this story, following a long career in universities, research councils and advisory groups. Lowe is the author of several books, including Living in the Hothouse (Scribe, 2005), A Big Fix (Black Inc., 2005), A Voice of Reason (UQP, 2010), Bigger or Better? (UQP, 2102) and The Lucky Country? Reinventing Australia (UQP, 2016).

This book is a clarion call for sanity at a time when we can finally get the nuclear monkey off our back - highly recommended. -- Peter Garrett Ian Lowe brings both scientific rigour and personal depth to an issue that has generated heartache and headlines for decades. This cautionary tale is timely and important. -- Dave Sweeney, Australian Conservation Foundation
