The crisis in energy policy by John M Deutch( Book )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our future depends on what we do about energy. This stark fact, clear since the oil embargo of the 1970s, has been hammered home through crisis after crisis—and yet our government has failed to come up with a coherent energy policy. John Deutch, with his extraordinary mix of technical, scholarly, corporate, and governmental expertise in the realm of energy, is uniquely qualified to explain what has stood in the way of progress on this most pressing issue. His book is at once an eye-opening history of the muddled practices that have passed for energy policy over the past thirty years, and a cogent account of what we can and should learn from so many breakdowns of strategy and execution.Three goals drive any comprehensive energy policy: develop an effective approach to climate change; transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy technologies; and increase the efficiency of energy use to reduce dependence on imported oil. Why has every effort in this direction eventually fallen short? Deutch identifies the sources of this failure in our popular but unrealistic goals, our competing domestic and international agendas, and our poor analysis in planning, policy-making, and administering government programs. Most significantly, The Crisis in Energy Policy clarifies the need to link domestic and global considerations, as well as the critical importance of integrating technical, economic, and political factors. Written for experts and citizens alike, this book will strengthen the hand of anyone concerned about the future of energy policy
Making technology work : applications in energy and the environment by John M Deutch( Book )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The successful application of new technology requires simultaneous consideration of the technical, economic, political, environmental, and international aspects of the innovation. This book presents fifteen cases of technology applications in the energy and environmental sectors. The case studies include applications of solar, wind, fuel cell, nuclear, and coal combustion and emission control technologies. Both successes and failures are analyzed. The case studies are also used to introduce a toolbox of analytical techniques useful in the context of realistic technology application. These techniques include energy and mass balances, project financial analysis tools, the treatment of external costs and benefits, probabilistic risk assessment, learning curves, regression analysis, and life cycle costing
National Security Consequences of U.S. Oil Dependency : Report of an Independent Task Force by David G Victor( Book )

Building capability from the technical revolution that has happened : report of the Belfer Center Conference on National Security Transformation by John Patrick White( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second annual conference on national security transformation confirms the usefulness of an annual appraisal by knowledgeable security specialists of progress on achieving different elements of transformation. But the conference also demonstrated that changing geopolitical circumstances and consequent national security concerns shape which aspects of transformation capture the most attention
Energy security and climate change in the trilateral context : a report to The Trilateral Commission by John M Deutch( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report revisits a topic explored in a 2007 Commission report that included a series of widely accepted energy predictions, many of which have proven significantly mistaken by 2015. The report assesses the complex and changing relationship between energy supply, the global economy, and geopolitics in a world in which North America has seen a revolutionary change in its production of both oil and natural gas, where it is now a net exporter. It is also a world where Europe continues to strive to diversify supply and maximize flexibility in the face of a security challenge in Ukraine. It is a world where the Asia Pacific region aims to diversify supply, increase conservation, and reassess nuclear power in the wake of Fukushima. Across this backdrop, efforts to reduce the negative impact of fossil fuel use on climate are examined and progress graded. --
Security transformation : report of the Belfer Center Conference on Military Transformation by John P White( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The attacks of September 11, 2001, represented the beginning of what President Bush has called [beta]a new kind of war.[gamma] While terrorism itself has long been on our spectrum of real and immediate threats, the magnitude of the attacks and the administration[alpha]s aggressive and expansive response have changed the definition of national security. Homeland security, the new first priority, needs to be integrated with more traditional national security concerns. The role of the Intelligence Community must strike a new balance in terms of foreign intelligence and domestic security. The military mission should be redefined. Meeting all of these challenges demands a fundamental transformation of American strategy, armed forces, and national security organization. This conference identified key issues and questions and was the inaugural event in a long-term project to assess defense transformation. This report summarizes the discussions from that workshop

What should the government do to encourage technical change in the energy sector? by John M Deutch( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Government support of innovation - both technology creation and technology demonstration - is desirable to encourage private investors to adopt new technology. In this paper, I review the government role in encouraging technology innovation and the success of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and its predecessor agencies in advancing technology in the energy sector. The DOE has had better success in the first stage of innovation (sponsoring R & D to create new technology options) than in the second stage (demonstrating technologies with the objective of encouraging adoption by the private sector). I argue that the DOE does not have the expertise, policy instruments, or contracting flexibility to successfully manage technology demonstration, and that consideration should be given to establishing a new mechanism for this purpose. The ill-fated 1980 Synthetic Fuels Corporation offers an interesting model for such a mechanism
Light scattering from systems with chemical oscillations and dissipative structures( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The spectrum of light scattered from a system of coupled non-linear chemical reactions is considered for steady states far from equilibrium. Fluctuations from a steady state may exhibit oscillatory decay, marginally stable chemical oscillations, or dissipative structures. Qualitatively new features appear in the spectrum when compared to the light scattering spectrum from reacting systems at equilibrium. The principal new features found are splitting in the chemical lines and dispersive (non-Lorentzian) contributions. Two model reaction mechanisms, the Volterra-Lotka model and the Prigogine-Lefever model, are examined in detail. (Author)
