I know about your stance on economic growth. However the book claims that the planet is just a set fixed of resources and that there isn't enough to go around and thus they try to justify malthusian and oppressive policies. Man's creative reason by discovering univeral physical principles makes him identity and create resources. Without the progress of science and technology the limits of growth would have been wood and coal for instance, but we've managed to create and utilize better resources, from both quantitative and qualitative standpoints. The book's statistical approach to this question is completely fraudulent because those statistics don't take into account the creation of new technologies. There is no scientific argument that can defend the idea of preserving the scarcity society and combating the post-scarcity society.

By the way, I'm not completely against nuclear technology. It shouldn't risk lives of ininvolved people though. The possible damage was discounted to merely nothing for sake of glory. The lessons of the past lead us to a more realistic approach.
Put them into isolated, calm, uninhabited regions and the reactors will do less harm.
