Review: 'Pandora's Promise' devotes too much energy to its own dogma
It's one thing to hear a legislator or industrialist extol "clean nuclear energy"; it's something else when the person singing those praises is an environmentalist. In "Pandora's Promise," Robert Stone has gathered the testimony of five people whose change of heart on the matter reflects his own (a quarter-century ago his "Radio Bikini" was a protest against atomic weapons). Writers and environmentalists, they speak with conviction, if not always convincingly, of nuclear power's necessity as a viable alternative to fossil fuel.
