  • Adventures in the Anthropoceneby Gaia Vince

    Random House 2014; US$ 27.24

    We live in epoch-making times. Literally. The changes we humans have made in recent decades have altered our world beyond anything it has experienced in its 4.5 billion-year history -- we have become a force on a par with earth-shattering asteroids and planet-cloaking volcanoes.

  • Environmental Education in the 21st Centuryby Joy Palmer

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 68.95

  • Transport Fuels from Australia's Gas Resourcesby Robert Clark; Mark J. Thomson

    UNSW Press 2014; US$ 39.99

    The transport sector in Australia depends heavily on imported oil-based fuels. With this comes the ever-present risk of oil supply shortages. But Australia is gas-rich and oil-poor, so it makes practical sense to assess how our own gas resources can be used to produce these fuels. Natural gas can be used directly as a fuel, blended with diesel in modified... more...
