CLOSE ALL YOUR DOORS AND WINDOWS AND DO NOT GO OUTSIDE UNLESS YOU ABS0LUTELY HAVE TO. The police loudspeaker warned that what was not supposed to happen had happened: a malfunctioning nuclear reactor just down the road. That’s where author Libbe HaLevy found herself in 1979, when she visited a friend in a small, quiet Pennsylvania town and ended up one mile away from the Three Mile Island nuclear reactor during its radiation-spewing meltdown. YES, I GLOW IN THE DARK! tells the story of not only that meltdown, but its impact on a life beyond the mere physical damage caused by radiation exposure. From 1950’s Duck-and-Cover exercises in case of a nuclear bomb and Disney’s Our Friend, the Atom through decades of post-TMI nuclear PTSD to her current level of international media activism, HaLevy’s YES, I GLOW IN THE DARK! tells how one nuclear victim learned to fight back with the facts, sarcasm, and a podcast. She draws parallels between the behaviors of nuclear industry officials and perpetrators of sexual abuse, and explains how the people at TMI and around other nuclear sites have been victims of perpetrational behavior by vested nuclear interests. She also nails the nuclear industry on how they have continued to get away with slow motion murder, from manipulating language to their ongoing, well-funded media propaganda campaigns, to flat-out lying. Fierce, uncompromising, yet surprisingly funny, HaLevy has written a book that Australian physician, author, and anti-nuclear advocate Dr. Helen Caldicott calls, “Absolutely fascinating. This book must be read by all people who care about the future of the planet and their children.”
