Critiques

Ramonita P. Melton ★★★★★

This is very informative and very helpful in letting other people know what are different ways in reducing carbon dioxide as applied by other countries.

Description

This book analyses, country by country and region by region, responses to the worldwide demand for reductions in carbon dioxide emissions. The discussion is quantitative and contains many related calculations. There are discussions of how the respective countries have fulfilled their obligations under the Kyoto Protocol and detailed coverage of some of novel technologies for energy production with reduced or nil carbon footprint.

The book has received a positive review in The Chemical Engineer, the monthly of the Institution of Chemical Engineers. You can see the review here: https://www.thechemicalengineer.com/features/offshore-oil-and-gas-decommissioning-book-review-issue-921/

Préface

I intend that this book will have the following purposes. It will provide an up-to-date coverage of carbon emissions and mitigations throughout the world. It attune the mind of a reader not previously specialising in such matters to such things as carbon-neutral fuels. And it will have its place in university courses in energy matters. A reader might think that the calculations throughout the book on carbon release and mitigation are starting, by about half way through the text, to become a little repetitive. This is intentional for two reasons. One cannot argue the points made without such calculations, and to a reader previously inexperienced in such matters they will provide helpful exercises.

This is the sixth in my series of books published by Ventus. Given the subject matter, I can imagine that there will be scope for a revised edition after about five years. This, subject to the approval of Ventus, I shall be happy to undertake.
