"Power to Save the World: The Truth About Nuclear Energy"

Gwyneth Cravens, writer and environmentalist, is the author of Power to Save the World: The Truth About Nuclear Energy. In the book, Cravens documents her eight-year journey through the nuclear world, her encounters with scientists from many different disciplines, and her shift from skeptic to supporter of nuclear power as the safest, greenest, and most efficient technology for large-scale mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions.

Cravens has contributed articles on science and other topics to The New Yorker, The New York Times, Harper’s, The Washington Post, Discover, Huffington Post, The Brookings Institution Review, and other publications. She worked as an editor at The New Yorker and as an associate editor at Harper’s, and for several years wrote a literary column for The Nation.  She has also published five novels.  She grew up in New Mexico and now lives on eastern Long Island.
