Energy; a crisis in power by John P Holdren( Book )

5 editions published between 1971 and 1973 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The demand of Americans for more and more power, particularly electric power, contrasted by the deep and growing concern for the environment and a desire by private citizens to participate in the public decisions that affect the environment is the dilemma explored in this book. Part One by John Holdren, offers a scientist's overview of the energy crisis, examining the sources and consumption of energy in the United States. He considers fossil fuels, hydroelectric energy, nuclear fission, energy use, thermal pollution, climate, tomorrow's energy supply, and some aspects of the demand, describing how production of power inevitably leaves its mark upon the environment. Part Two by Philip Herrera, reports a journalist's account of remarkable efforts by concerned citizens to protect the environment from the effects of power-activated air, water, and landscape pollution. Case studies of some of the major recent controversies over the placement and operation of power plants are given, summarizing their conflicts and resolutions. Together, the author's observations and recommendations raise hope that the United States can find a rational solution to its energy crisis. (Bl)

17 editions published in 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Building global security through cooperation : annals of Pugwash 1989 by Joseph Rotblat( Book )

11 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1989 was by any standards an extraordinary year: the year in which the Cold War ended. However, although much has changed, much remains unresolved or not changed at all. Even though the rationale for the huge military forces has been removed from the East-West relationship, these forces still retain a tremendous potential to do harm. Moreover, threats to peace may grow along North-South and South-South axes. An example of such a threat is the rapid growth in size and sophistication of military arsenals in the South. The contributions to this volume make it clear that the problems of East and West, North and South are inter- twined. Security can be gained only through cooperation. The contributors, who come from widely differing geographical, cultural and political backgrounds, all share the Pugwash tradition of scientific objectivity
Titans of the climate : explaining policy process in the United States and China by Kelly Sims Gallagher( Book )

2 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States and China together account for a disproportionate 45 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions. In 2014, then-President Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping announced complementary efforts to limit emissions, paving the way for the Paris Agreement. And yet, with President Trump's planned withdrawal from the Paris accords and Xi's consolidation of power--as well as mutual mistrust fueled by misunderstanding--the climate future is uncertain. In Titans of the Climate, Kelly Sims Gallagher and Xiaowei Xuan examine how the planet's two largest greenhouse gas emitters develop and implement climate policy. Through dispassionate analysis, the authors aim to help readers understand the challenges, constraints, and opportunities in each country
