Radioactive waste : politics, technology, and risk by Ronnie D Lipschutz( Book )

7 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 935 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A hundred years ago, many theorists believed ... that the world had reached a state of economic perfection, a never-before-seen human interdependence that would lead to universal growth and prosperity. At the time, the German mark was one of the most trusted currencies in the world. Yet the early years of the Weimar Republic in Germany witnessed the most calamitous collapse of a developed economy in modern times. [This book explores] anew the dramatic story of the hyperinflation that saw the mark--worth 4.2 to the dollar in 1914--plunge until it traded at over 4 trillion to 1 by the autumn of 1923"--Dust jacket flap

Ending Europe's wars : the continuing search for peace and security by Jonathan Dean( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ending Europe's Wars traces the dramatic course of change in Europe - perestroika, the liberation of Eastern Europe, the collapse of the Soviet Union - to uncover the roots of today's problems. The author shows how these positive developments have also brought real or potential threats to European security: the Russian confrontation with Ukraine; the uncertainties surrounding Russian military intervention in neighboring republics; the possibility that Russia's nuclear arsenal could get out of control; massive population movements sparking racism and intolerance in Western Europe; tragic, unresolved ethnic conflicts in the former Yugoslavia and the states bordering Russia; a resurgent Germany; and growing confrontation with fundamentalist Islam
A scientist's guide to talking with the media : practical advice from the Union of Concerned Scientists by Richard Hayes( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Richard Hayes and Daniel Grossman draw on their expertise in public relations and journalism to empower researchers in a variety of fields to spread their message on their own terms. The authors provide tips on how to translate abstract concepts into concrete metaphors, craft soundbites, and prepare for interviews. For those looking for a higher profile, the authors explain how to become a reporter's trusted source - the first card in the Rolodex - on controversial issues." "A must-read for all scientists, this book shows how it is possible for the discoveries that hibernate in lecture halls and academic journals to reach a broader audience in a way that is accurate and effective."--Jacket

Climate 2030 : a national blueprint for a clean energy economy by Rachel Cleetus( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: This report analyzes the economic and technological feasibility of meeting stringent targets for reducing global warming emissions, with a cap set at 26 percent below 2005 levels by 2020, and 56 percent below 2005 levels by 2030. Our analysis relies primarily on a modified version of the U.S. Department of Energy's National Energy Modeling System (referred to as UCS-NEMS). We supplemented that model with an analysis of the impact of greater energy efficiency in industry and buildings by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy. We also worked with researchers at the University of Tennessee to analyze the potential for crops and residues to provide biomass energy. We then combined our model with those studies to capture the dynamic interplay between energy use, energy prices, energy investments, and the economy while also considering competition for limited resources and land. Our analysis shows that the technologies and policies pursued under the Blueprint produce dramatic changes in energy use and cuts in carbon emissions. The analysis also shows that consumers and businesses reap significant net savings under the comprehensive Blueprint approach, while the nation sees strong economic growth

Interference at the EPA : science and politics at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has the simple yet profound charge "to protect human health and the environment." EPA scientists apply their expertise to protect the public from air and water pollution, clean up hazardous waste, and study emerging threats such as global warming. Because each year brings new and potentially toxic chemicals into our homes and workplaces, because air pollution still threatens our public health, and because environmental challenges are becoming more complex and global, a strong and capable EPA is more important than ever. Yet challenges from industry lobbyists and some political leaders to the agency's decisions have too often led to the suppression and distortion of the scientific findings underlying those decisions -- to the detriment of both science and the health of our nation. While every regulatory agency must balance scientific findings with other considerations, policy makers need access to the highest-quality scientific information to make fully informed decisions. Concern over this problem led the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) to investigate political interference in science at the EPA. The investigation combines dozens of interviews with current and former EPA staff, analysis of government documents, more than 1,600 responses to a survey sent to current EPA scientists, and written comments from EPA scientists. The results of these investigations show an agency under siege from political pressures. On numerous issues -- ranging from mercury pollution to groundwater contamination to climate change -- political appointees have edited scientific documents, manipulated scientific assessments, and generally sought to undermine the science behind dozens of EPA regulations. These findings highlight the need for strong reforms to protect EPA scientists, make agency decision making more transparent, and reduce politicization of the regulatory process."
