Global Warming, Militarism and Nonviolence

Global Warming, Militarism and Nonviolence

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/global-warming-militarism-a...
Militarism is the elephant in the room of global warming. Of all government sectors, 'Defence' has the highest carbon footprint and expenditure, yet has largely been exempt from international scrutiny and regulation. Marty Branagan uses Australian and international case studies to show that nonviolence is a viable alternative to militarism for national defence and regime change. 'Active resistance', initiated in Australian environmental blockades and now adopted globally, makes the song 'We Shall Not Be Moved' much more realistic, as activists erect tripod villages, bury, chain and cement themselves into the ground, and 'lock-on' to machinery and gates. Active resistance, 'artistic activism', and use of new information and communication technologies in movements such as the Arab Spring and 'Occupy' demonstrate that nonviolence is an effective, evolving praxis.
Green Electricity and Global Warming

Green Electricity and Global Warming

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/green-electricity-and-globa...
Electricity capacity in the Unitrd Global Warming States (U. S.) Is severely constrained. And that constraint is exacerbated by global warming concerns. In order to alleviate that constraint, new, high effi ciency technology must be utilized primarily in commercial and industrial applications. These technologies would replace a 'cap and trade' tax policy that would be an onerous taxingn action to reduce the global warming problem. Ultimately, innovation would free-up additional electric capacity.

Al Gore and Global Warming

Al Gore and Global Warming

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/al-gore-and-global-warming...
Since Al Gore's departure from public office in 2001, the former vice president of the United States, senator, and congressman has devoted much of his time to warning the world of alarming climate changes. The message is highly disturbing, but Gore delivers it in his patient southern drawl, assuring audiences that the problem is not beyond solution. His award-winning efforts have helped focus growing attention on global warming. In the process, they have made Gore a more prominent public figure today than ever before. Students examine Gore's background as an environmental activist, his work as a journalist and politician, and about his fight to educate people about global warming and its implications.

Global warming is the greatest environmental threat facing humanity. From killer heat waves and increasingly violent weather to the spread of pests and vector-borne diseases, global warming has many effects on our lives. While some are positive, most are negative. People fear potentially catastrophic consequences but there is a disturbing lack of understanding about global warming and what can be done about it. In Global Warming Chris Spence breaks through the jargon, offering readers both a clear description of the problem and a practical guide to solutions, from decreasing reliance on automobiles to increased recycling to political activism. It offers hope that each of us can be doing something to solve the problem and encourages us to act-not only for ourselves, but for our children and grandchildren.
Global Warming Is Good

Global Warming Is Good

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/global-warming-is-good...
A warmer climate: good or bad? The icy polar regions would thaw. But would hotter parts of the world dry up? In the past they didn't. Five periods in the last half-million years were warmer than today. Each time the Sahara got more rain and turned to lush grass. When Earth warmed up the forests bloomed and the deserts shrank. But when Earth got colder the deserts expanded and the trees died back.

Global Warming: The Causes And Consequences by Ishita Haldar Global warming and climate change have become an issue of great concern. Now as the world is getting technologically and industrially more advanced, resulting in the setting up of huge factories, the environmental pollution is heading towards alarming levels. It is obvious that more factories mean more pollution and more carbon emissions, which highly aggravate global warming. Keeping this in view, the policy makers from all over the w-orld have decided to unite and chalk out a plan to keep the adverse effects of global warming within safety limits. This book is also an effort in this direction. Defining in detail the major aspects ofglobal warming, it discusses at length its causes and effects. Taking a close look at the globalresponse to contain global warming, it also explains the important provisions of Copenhagen Summit, Kyoto Protocol and Post-Kyoto Protocol Negotiations on Green-house Gas Emissions.

The effects of Global Warming on the environment and human life are varied, while some effects of recent climate change may already be occurring. Students will understand how Global Warming differs from natural climate change and how the evolution of human society has depended on a steady climate. We also look at rising sea levels, glacier retreat and altered patterns of agriculture which are cited as direct consequences of Global Warming. As well, regional effects include extreme weather events, diminishing fresh water supply, human & wildlife health, and economic impacts. Our resource is a real time-saver with reading passages and student activities provided along with color mini posters, hands-on activities, crossword, word search, test prep, and a final quiz.

Pollution and Global Warming

Pollution and Global Warming

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/pollution-and-global-warmin...
In the end, we are all affected by pollution, no one person is affected by it. It was already clear that because world climate was warmer, land can also be contaminated on a large scale by damaging irrigation practices. In very day areas, farmland is soaked in water from rivers to grow crops. Because the weather is hot, the water evaporates quickly leaving behind tiny quantities of salt. The government's in poorer countries worry that the demands to preserve their environment made by the richer industrial countries will prevent economic development in the electricity generating business, burning coal rather than gas produces 30 percent more carbon dioxide to provide the same amount of power it can be hard for people to change, eventhough they may want a clean environment, drivers in the united states buy gas at about a quarter of the price as those in europe. The world's fi rst nuclear power station opened in britain in 1956. Within 20 years hundreds were being built across the world at the time it was believed that atomic energy would be so cheap it could replace coal and oil as the world's major energy. In my home island, Trinidad, rising sea levels has changed the landscape I group with nature, we all most respect nature, man is but a grain of salt in the universe. When your son or daughter ask you twenty years from now, "What did you do to help make the world better?" What will be you answer?
