Transforming Power: Energy, Environment, and Society in Conflict
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungIncluding theoretical inquiries and case studies by distinguished writers, Transforming Power is divided into three parts: Energy, Environment, and Society; The Politics of Conventional Energy; and The Politics of Sustainable Energy. It interrogates current contemporary energy assumptions, exploring the reflexive relationship between energy, environment, and society, and examining energy as a social project. Some of these have promised a prosperous future founded upon technological advances that further modernie the modern energy system, such as inherently safe nuclear power, environmentally friendly coal gasification, and the advent of a wealthier, cleaner world powered by fuel cells; and the green technologies, said by advocates to prefigure a revival of human scale development, local self-determination, and a commitment to ecological balance.
