  Joshua Meltzer and Tim Boersma discuss the challenges to the European Union's post climate and energy framework and its long-term targets for carbon reduction and renewable energy.   The book explains wicked problems, advocates waste-to-energy (and converted me on the subject) and delves into topics such as the grids, resilience, risk, security and energy independence. Verdict: This must-read book will give the reader a comprehensive understanding of the issues at hand.   Climate Change Could Destroy His Home in Peru. So He Sued an Energy Company in Germany. In Bangladesh, the effects of climate change are happening now: It may lose more than 10 percent of its land. 11 hours ago  The end of the book touches on several big interventions that might curb climate change, such as mass tree planting or geoengineering, but Jahren argues these won’t fix the root cause of climate.

In Climate of Hope, Bloomberg, an entrepreneur and former mayor of New York City, and Pope, a lifelong environmental leader, offer an optimistic look at the challenge of climate change, the solutions they believe hold the greatest promise, and the practical steps that are necessary to achieve them.

They provide a road map for tackling the most. Geological science offers a unique way of looking at the relationship between energy and climate change. The neatest way to see this connection is through the carbon cycle—the path that carbon takes through the atmosphere, biosphere and geosphere—and to see the limits to that cycle, and the controls on its rate and character that are subject to natural fundamental laws.

This book quantifies the mitigation challenge. It then considers the status of key technologies needed to protect the planet from serious climate change impact. Current and emerging technologies are characterized for their mitigation potential, status of development and potential environmental impacts.

By contrast, Climate Change and the Nation State argues for reframing the struggle in nationalist terms. Some 55% of all emissions come from four countries — China, the United States, India and. Beyond Smoke and Mirrors: A Citizen's Guide to Climate Change and Energy brings sophisticated insights and common sense to the issues, but is fully accessible to the public.

This book should be required reading for anyone who seeks to understand one of the most significant global challenges that confronts humankind."/5(24). The book includes chapters on energy basics, a discussion of the contemporary energy systems of the US and China, and two chapters that engage the debate regarding climate change.

Moving to clean energy is key to combating climate change, yet in the past five years, the energy transition has stagnated. Energy consumption and production contribute to two-thirds of global emissions, and 81% of the global energy system is still based on fossil fuels, the same percentage as 30 years ago.

Climate change is an undeniable issue affecting each and every one of us on this planet. Indeed it is one of the greatest challenges facing mankind both today and in the future. The need to address climate change is not only clear in recent reports.

Stepping all the way up to the climate challenge DOES mean ambitious collective action; more public investment in solutions (as well as good climate policy that drives private investment in the right direction); greater commitment to social and economic equity; and curbs on corporate power.

Renewable Energy and Climate Change, 2nd Edition starts by examining our hunger for energy—how much we need, how much we use, and how much it is costing us.

It then looks at the state of climate change today and the causes. Following that, the book focuses on how we waste and save energy. Improved energy storage systems: The sun and the wind are incredible energy sources. Finding ways to store that energy to use after the sun sets and the wind stops blowing is a big challenge we need to solve.

We do have ways to store energy for a matter of hours—like lithium ion batteries—that are becoming cheaper every year. We have over 20 interviews on climate change, recommending books on every angle of the problem.

Proposed climate-change policies may differ in a number of ways, but they have at least one thing in common: they all interact with the fiscal system. And as we will show with the different climate-change policies considered in this book, the economic impacts of climate policies depend crucially on these interactions.
