Energy and Carbon Emissions: The Way We Live Today

Energy and Carbon Emissions: The Way We Live Today Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Offering guidance on calculating individual carbon emissions and determining the impact of the changes that can be made, this collection of facts and figures about energy use in the United Kingdom emphasizes the consequences of domestic consumption and personal lifestyle choices. This book avoids political and ethical discussion and does not have a perfect solution to the energy problem; instead, it provides the information needed to evaluate not only how to reduce the carbon footprint, but also how to save money by lowering the cost of energy bills. Straightforward answers are provided to questions such as How much carbon will I save if I stop eating meat? Should I scrap my old car and buy a new one? and How much energy do I use each day making tea? Tables and charts showing average consumption and emissions, renewable-energy potential, historical trends, and international context display the data in different lights to present a well-rounded picture of the current state of the energy problem.
