Description

Nations around the world already require staggering amounts of energy for use in the transportation, manufacturing, heating and cooling, and electricity sectors, and energy requirements continue to increase as more people adopt more energy-intensive lifestyles. Meeting this ever-growing demand in a way that minimizes environmental disruption is one of the central problems of the 21st century. Proposed solutions are complex and fraught with
unintended consequences. The six-volume Energy and the Environment set is intended to provide an accessible and comprehensive examination of the history, technology, economics, science, and environmental and social implications, including issues of environmental justice, associated with the acquisition of energy and the production of power.
