Chapter 8 concludes with suggestions about how to promote cheaper, safer, more ethical, and less carbon-intensive energies, such as renewables, conservation, and energy efficiencies. It shows that people are misled not only about the energy costs of nuclear fission, but also about fission's climate-emissions costs (chapter 2), its financial costs (chapter 3), its safety costs (chapter 4), its equity and justice costs (chapter 5), and its opportunity costs—because nuclear investments take money away from cleaner, cheaper, safer, more equitable, and more abundant renewable-energy sources (chapter 6). The seemingly disparate interests of the market, citizens’ safety concerns, CC, ethical concerns, and common sense actually all dictate the same course of action: using renewable energy, conservation, and efficiency to address CC.
