In this book, the author, a nuclear physicist who has been hailed by "Time" magazine as one of the world's top "leaders and visionaries" of the environment, takes readers through the basics of the world energy system, its problems, and the technical as well as non-technical solutions to the most pressing energy problems. Addressing the issues in a Q & A format, Goldemberg answers questions such as: What are wind, wave and geothermal energy? What are the problems of nuclear waste disposal? What is acid rain? What is the greenhouse gas effect? What is Carbon Capture and Storage? What are smart grids? What is energy security? What is "cap and trade"? The book sheds light on the role of population growth in energy consumption, renewable energy resources, the amount of available energy reserves (and when they will run out), geopolitical issues, environmental problems, the frequency of environmental disasters, energy efficiency, new technologies, and solutions to changing consumption patterns. It will be the first place to look for information on the vital topic of energy. Sprache: English Very good condition with only minor signs of wear. Original illustrated softcover.
