Description

Energy Industries and Sustainability, a Berkshire Essential, covers the exploitation of energy resources—such as coal, petroleum, and wood—and the innovations that can
provide the energy we need for a cleaner, safer, and more sustainable future. Forty expert
authors explain concepts such as “materials substitution” and the “polluter pays
principle” and examine the industries and practices that bring us energy from the sun,
water, and wind. This concise handbook offers a broad view of positive steps being taken
to make responsible energy use a priority around the globe, and is designed for use
in classrooms at the high school and college level. The book will be helpful to engaged
citizens as well as to business people, policy makers, and environmental professionals.
Controversial topics such as nuclear power and fracking are explained clearly and impartially,
with a view to promoting thoughtful discussion and informed decision-making.
