Society's use of energy and technology is at heart of many of the most significant environmental problems of recent years, including problems of health, global warming and acid rain. Use of technology has been a major cause of environmental problems but new technology offers many solutions.
Energy, Society and Environment is an introduction to energy and energy use, and the interactions between technology, society and the environment. The book is clearly structured to examine:
* key environmental issues, and the harmful impacts of energy use
* new technological solutions to environmental problems
* implementation of possible solutions
* implications for society in developing a sustainable approach to energy use.
Social processes and strategic solutions to problems are located within a clear, technological context with topical case studies and informative diagrams illustrating key issues.
Energy, Society and Environment examines the potential and limits of technical solutions to environmental problems and suggests the social, economic and political changes necessary to avoid serious environmental damage in the future.
