The end of the world as we know it? by Marcel Theroux( Visual )

in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marcel's search for solutions directs him to C.A.T., Centre of Alternative Technology, England; and to Chernobyl, site of the worst nuclear accident in history. At C. AT., he learns that to bring global warming under control, every individual must produce less than 2 1/2 tonnes of carbon per year - an impracticable target in a carbon-intensive consumer world. As for alternative technology to generate renewable energy, there is no time for all the 'nice ideas' to work. In times of urgency, safe nuclear power, despite its dangers as seen in Chernobyl, seems to be the only solution. And, the debate continues. The Greens' suggestion of changing the ways of the developed nations, seems unworkable. Developing countries, such as India and China, are rapidly switching over to the very same carbon-intensive consumerism, which is causing their own destruction. Carbon-intensive things in the home, such as cars and electric/electronic gadgets, are now the weapons of mass destruction of the planet. The simple choice is to switch them off, or install nuclear power stations, but it is a politically hard decision
