  • "Jane Genovese is a public speaker, university graduate of Law and Arts (majoring in Psychology) and passionate global warming advocate. She became concerned about global warming after reading an article on Artic Eskimos losing their way of life due to rapid climate change. This motivated her to study Environmental law and International Environmental law at university. Shortly after, she created the “Global Warming: Too Hot to Handle?” workshop and this book with her mother, Sharon. In her spare time, Jane enjoys salsa dancing, watching good documentaries and going to the gym."......

  • Global warming is theenvironmental issue of the twenty-first century. Many believe it ranks with war and poverty as one of the greatest challenges to human well-being. But unlike war and poverty, which humanity has confronted for millennia, global warming is a recent concern. And unlike war and poverty, global warming is mainly a pro-spective threat and one that can in principle be met with pre-emptive action.

  • Several times over the last few years, we’ve asked ourselves about our own call to leadership in a world beset by unprecedented challenges and crises, from the AIDS pandemic to global warming to the destruction and fear wrought by terrorism and state responses to it. We have joined particular initiatives to respond to these challenges, but we always return to the conviction that our best contribution is teaching and writing about how the world’s citizens can work together for the common good in their organizations and communities....

  • Our industrialized society generates an increasing amount of waste. This waste is released into the atmosphere, dumped into the water or buried into the earth. The pollution of the atmosphere is primarily caused by the combustion of fossil fuels in energy conversion devices. Some water and land pollution also occurs during the use of fossil fuels, but this problem is not as severe as that of air pollution and it is similar to that confronted by other industries (such as the chemical industry, to name just one).

  • The LCA covered several different environmental impact categories; global warming, acidification, eutrophication, ozone layer depletion, photooxidant formation and resource use as well as toxicological impact categories. In addition the results were weighted using two different weighting methods; Ecotax 02 and Eco-Indicator 99. The results showed different patterns regarding where in the life cycle the main potential environmental impact can be seen.

  • The attendant “green house effect” is one of the most frightening environmental problems of our time. Ozone layers that serve as blanket for regulating the earth’s temperature are stripped as a resulting of gas flaring thereby causing global warming (Ikelegbe, 1993). In spite of advances in technology and the potential to convert the flared gas into a source of enormous nation revenue, the practices has continued in Nigeria, ostensibly underscoring the problems of our national development (Oyekunle, 1999; Akpan, 2009).

  • Independent research on a health issue is often the first step to complement discussions with a physician. But locating accurate, well-organized, understandable medical information can be a challenge. A simple Internet search on terms such as “cancer” or “diabetes,” for example, returns an intimidating number of results. Sifting through the results can be daunting, particularly when some of the information is inconsistent or even contradictory.

  • The rapid increase in the price of crude oil in recent years (as of 2005) and the resulting“sticker shock” at the gas pump have caused the scientific and engineering communitiesto finally understand that it is time for some reality checks on our priorities. Energyis the real problem that faces the world, and it will not be solved by the recent fads ofbiotechnology or nanotechnology. Energy consumption is the main producer of carbondioxide, so it is directly linked with the problem of global warming.

  • Today there is not a single aspect of the world that can escape the scrutiny of environmental analysis, and business activities stand at the crux of many issues. Some of the issues that today’s executives need to understand to be environmentally literate include: air, water, and land pollution; the production and disposal of hazardous wastes; solid waste disposal; chemical and nuclear spills and accidents; global warming and the greenhouse effect; ozone depletion; deforestation and desertification; biodiversity, and overpopulation.

  • Understanding greenhouse gas sources, emissions, measurements, and management is essential for capture, utilization, reduction, and storage of greenhouse gas, which plays a crucial role in issues such as global warming and climate change. Taking advantage of the authors' experience in greenhouse gases, this book discusses an overview of recently developed techniques, methods, and strategies: - A comprehensive source investigation of greenhouse gases that are emitted from hydrocarbon reservoirs, vehicle transportation, agricultural landscapes, farms, non-cattle confined buildings, and so on.

  • The Earth’s polar regions (see Figure 1.1) are ecologically, economically, and, increasingly, geopolitically important; they are particularly vulnerable to the speed and magnitude of climate change and have significant potential to influence the global climate system (Oreskes, 2004; IPCC, 2007a; Anderegg et al., 2010). Climate models and observational data have shown that polar regions have warmed at substantially higher rates than the global mean (IPCC, 2007c).

  • I do not want to mislead you into thinking this book is about global warming and its part in climate change. My hope is that I can talk to you using mostly simple terms and common experiences about certain properties of water, how these are affecting us all, and where climate change has a role in ongoing problems. I will describe and explain some properties of water that you need to know to understand how water and air interact in a predictable way. Using this knowledge, you can gain an understanding of not only why and how global warming is affecting climate, but also be...

  • A simple guide to help anyone on the path of self-actualization & enlightenment. We exist in humanities apex, the next fifty to one-hundred years will either define us or destroy us... personally I think the latter has a better chance, because I see no way out of the global warming issue, but I really hope I am wrong, but either way what happens really doesn’t matter in the big scope of things, for we are mere seeds adrift in the cosmic winds. With normal advances in stem cell research and a better understanding of our DNA, we will in...

  • Sciences (EHS) is a dynamic group of faculty and students exploring the impact of chemical, biological, and physical agents on human health. We work to discover the sources and distribution of these agents; understand individual response at the molecular, cellular, organ, and whole-body levels; assess environmental risk and devise prevention and intervention strategies. Current thinking on the environment and health has propelled us to consider how the built environment and the social environment influence human health beyond the traditional focus on hazardous agents.
