John Houghton's market-leading textbook is now in full colour and includes the latest IPCC findings, making it the definitive guide to climate change. Written for students across a wide range of disciplines, its simple, logical flow of ideas gives an invaluable grounding in the science and impacts of climate change and highlights the need for action on global warming. Is there evidence for climate changing due to human activities? How do we account for recent extremes of weather and climate? Can global electricity provision and transport ever be carbon free? Written by a leading figure at the forefront of action to confront humanity's most serious environmental problem, this undergraduate textbook comprehensively explores these and other issues, allowing students to think through the problem, assess the data and draw conclusions on the action that should be taken, by governments, by industry and by each and every one of us.

Global Warming

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.

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.

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?

Global Warming Navigation

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/global-warming-navigation...
Once upon a time on a baby blue planet where everything was just right, a few mischievous men decided to find out how much carbon dioxide they could send up into the atmosphere before the planet got overcooked and teeming with tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, droughts, and forest fires popping up all over. Flocks of nice people, upset with how their baby blue planet was being messed with, marched and carried signs until these pranksters got so ashamed they quit playing with carbon dioxide. The planet cooled back down and calmed back down and we all lived happily ever after". We all know it's not at all that simple, but it seems as though our actions are inspired by that fairy tale. In "Global Warming Navigation", author Ed Prell addresses a readership that is fully aware of the threat posed by greenhouse gas emissions and the need to curtail them drastically. He proceeds to sketch a near future in which determined players must team up and use every ethical tool available to stop greenhouse gas emission. But inescapably linked with this curtailment are unprecedented, enormous consequences that must be acknowledged and acted upon. How can we ensure that a kilowatt-hour of clean energy will be on tap to replace each thwarted kilowatt-hour of fossil-produced energy? What will become of our electrical grids, which are designed to deliver power from large power plants to millions of customers? How can we make the changeover from gasoline and diesel to battery power for our vehicles? How do we cope with the abrupt decline of the principal operations of the largest business sector in the world? What about the international financial markets? What of the millions of pensioners, shareholders, employees, and smaller businesses that depend on the continued profitable operation of the fossil fuel corporations? Can we or should we explore means to mitigate the climate damage without halting the use of fossil fuels? Should populations in tornado alleys and low-lying seacoasts rebui

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.

Energy, Transportation and Global Warming

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/energy-transportation-and-g...
This book presents a holistic view of climate change by examining a number of energy and transportation technologies and their impact on the climate. High-quality technical research results from specific test-cases around the globe are presented, and developments in global warming are discussed, focusing on current emissions policies from air and maritime transport to fossil fuel applications. Novel technologies such as carbon capture and storage are investigated together with the corresponding process and systems analysis, as well as optimization for mitigating CO2 emissions. Water resources management, waste water treatment, and waste management issues are also covered. Finally, biomass, hydrogen and solar energy applications are presented along with some insights on green buildings. Energy, Transportation and Global Warming is of great interest to researchers in the field of renewable and green energy as well as professionals in climate change management, the transportation sector, and environmental policy.

Global Warming: Alarmists, Skeptics & Deniers

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/global-warming-alarmists-sk...
Dr. Craig D. Idso, founder and chairman of the board of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change, says the book ".is a refreshing read on a topic of great societal importance. because the authors evaluate key predictions and controversies of the global warming debate using logic and science." Prof Robert M. Carter, Marine Geophysical Laboratory, says "In an easily accessible style, Robinson leads us through the science information to answer the question, 'Are human carbon dioxide emissions causing dangerous global warming?' The more surprised you are that the answer is 'no,' then the more you need to read this excellent book." Global Warming: Alarmists, Skeptics and Deniers brings a unique geological perspective to this politically charged issue, a perspective that has been ignored far too long. Written by a father-son team of geoscientist and attorney, it is the concise guide to the global warming controversy that has been long needed. As a university professor and research geoscientist for thirty years, Dr. Robinson knows that geological science is essential for placing the global warming controversy in proper prospective. One cannot hope to understand how humans might be causing climate change without an understanding of the magnitude and speed natural processed are capable of when it comes to climate change. Earth history is the only yardstick we have to determine whether recent climate change is unusual or not. Yet, inexplicably, a vast repository of geologic data has been ignored in this contentious issue. Global Warming: Alarmists, Skeptics and Deniers was written to correct this oversight.
