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 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.

Theodore Lar, rings the BELL of our Last Days on this Planet, not because of Carbon Dioxide and Methane levels, but as a result of negligence, Division, Greed and selfishness that drive us to the extinction. Global Warming is strictly a Geophysical issue, do not relates to Fossil fuels or other Anthropogenic source.I got No Paid by huge or small Corporations to create this book. This is the real story and it is serious, our Planet is in peril.

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.

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: The Skeptic's Brief

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/global-warming-the-skeptic-...
In Global Warming: The Skeptic's Brief, Dr. Robert Almeder refutes the arguments of those who believe we are in a state of unprecedented global warming caused by human activities and escalating catastrophically into the next century and beyond. Analyzing the most compelling and respected research in the scientific community, Almeder shows that the extreme global warming movement lacks sufficient evidence to justify any of its central claims.

Delve into this book today. : Importantly, the team made three extremely conservative assumptions: (1) that policymakers will embrace the A1B scenario instead of the A1FI scenario, (2) that all of the carbon would be released as carbon dioxide instead of methane, which is more likely and over a 20 year lifetime has 72x the greenhouse warming power of CO2, and (3) their model did not project additional temperature rise caused by the release of these additional gases. .For example, the uncertainty in IPCC's 2007 projections is caused by (1) the use of multiple models with differing sensitivity to greenhouse gas concentrations, (2) the use of differing estimates of humanities' future greenhouse gas emissions, (3) any additional emissions from climate feedbacks that were not included in the models IPCC used to prepare its report, i.e. , greenhouse gas releases from permafrost. .This was justified on the basis that: the developed world's emissions had contributed most to the stock of GHGs in the atmosphere; per-capita emissions ( i.e. , emissions per head of population) were still relatively low in developing countries; and the emissions of developing countries would grow to meet their development needs. :290 This mandate was sustained in the Kyoto Protocol to the Framework Convention,:290 which entered into legal effect in 2005. .A preliminary assessment published in November 2010 by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) suggests a possible emissions gap between the voluntary pledges made in the Accord and the emissions cuts necessary to have a likely (greater than 66% probability) chance of meeting the 2 °C objective. :10-14 The UNEP assessment takes the 2 °C objective as being measured against the pre
