Book Launch: Long Half-life

Readings Hawthorn — Woiworung Country, 701 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn, Victoria, 3122

Join Dave Sweeney of the Australian Conservation Foundation to celebrate the launch of Lowe’s latest book, Long Half-Life.

Long Half-Life tells the important story of how Australia has been directly involved in the nuclear industry for more than a century, but our involvement has never been comprehensively documented. It tells the social and political history of Australia’s role, from the first discovery of radioactive ores in 1906 to contemporary contentious questions. Should the next generation of submarines be nuclear powered? Can nuclear energy help to slow global climate change? Do we need nuclear weapons for defence? Should we store radioactive waste from nuclear power stations in our region?

This event is free to attend but bookings are essential.
