This book puts the debates about the energy-climate continuum on a scientific ground! It is a must-read for everyone, who wants to understand how intimately the energy and climate debates are linked to each other, and who wants to participate in these omnipresent discussions. Antoine Bret explains in his book how fossil fuels became indispensable for our society. He carefully explains how and why this impacts the earth's climate. And he points out that all available fossil fuels will sooner or later be used up. Therefore, he introduces and discusses the alternatives, which are currently considered. The book is divided into three parts. The first part explains the problem and where we stand today, the second part critically discusses possible elements of solution. The third part illustrates historic case studies, containing both warning as well as encouraging examples of societies at turning points. This book is a careful introduction to these topics. The basic science behind the problem and the debates are introduced in an understandable and nicely readable fashion. Facts are illustrated with simple back-on-the-envelope calculations, providing a good feeling for orders of magnitudes. A rich appendix provides additional background information for the interested readers. In this way, the book can even be a valuable resource for introductory university courses in physics, climate science, natural science and many more subjects. This book is a real conversation starter and can be recommended to everyone, specialist or non-specialist, who wants to understand the actual energy-climate debates and maybe even involve.

With one famous equation, E=mc2, Einstein proved all matter can be described as energy. It is everywhere and it is everything. In this newly updated and engaging introduction, renowned scientist Vaclav Smil explores energy in all its facets – from the inner workings of the human body to what we eat, the car we drive and the race for more efficient and eco-friendly fuels. Energy: A Beginner's Guide highlights the importance of energy in both past and present societies, by shedding light on the science behind global warming and efforts to prevent it, and by revealing how our daily decisions affect energy consumption. Whether you're looking for dinner table conversation or to further your own understanding, this book will amaze and inform, uncovering the truths and exposing the myths behind one of the most important concepts in our universe.

"EPMOW lives music. Put another way, it does for popular music what Grove has done for classical" David Brackett ‘Excellent, readable and thoroughly useful...While some previous single-volume and multivolume works have addressed the development and current state of popular music, none has done so with this work's depth of scholarship and global reach. Scholarly, clearly written, and well indexed, it is an ideal reference set.' Library Journal Continuum Encyclopedia of Popular Music of the World's five-volume work ‘Locations' is the most authoritative reference work on the history and current practice of popular music ever published. The five volumes on ‘Locations' that form Part 2 of this multi-volume work follow on from the two volumes of Part 1: Media, Industry and Society (Volume I) and Performance and Production (Volume II) . They cover over 200 nation states and are organized according to continental regions: Volume III: Caribbean and Latin America Volume IV: North America Volume V: Asia and Oceania Volume VI: Africa and the Middle East Volume VII: Europe Each discusses the history, development and current practice of popular music in cities, districts, cross-border regions, nation states and diasporic communities around the world. Includes coverage of:- The historical, geographical, demographical, political, economic and cultural context- Genres for which the location is known or which have been important to the development and current practice of its popular music- Significant venues such as theatres, dance halls, clubs and bars- The role of the industry: music publishers, record companies/labels, recording studios, radio and TV- The role of the state and government regulatory bodies- The teaching and research of popular music in educational institutions- Songs associated with the location- Notable performers and other practitioners such as producers, engineers, technological innovators, record company heads, journalists, critics and scholars, songwriters, composers and lyricists. 250 leading popular music scholars and practitioners have contributed over 500 entries. They include Rafael José de Menezes Bastos on Brazil, Peter Manuel on India and the Caribbean Islands, John Collins on Ghana, Moya Aliya Malamusi on Malawi, Tôru Mitsui on Japan, Motti Regev on Israel, Martin Stokes on Turkey, Richard Peterson on Nashville, Amy Ku'uleialoha Stillman on Hawai'I, Bruce Johnson on Australia, Paolo Prato on Italy, Svanibor Pettan on Croatia and Alf Björnberg on Sweden.

This publication draws together research undertaken by nursery and primary teachers, in conjunction with Local Education Authorities and by Higher Education staff. It focuses on practice and provision in the early years of education and care, looking predominantly at children between the ages of three and eight. The research is drawn upon in making a case for considering the early years as a continuum of development and learning. The aspects of this continuum that are addressed include special needs, language development, parental involvement, four-year-olds in school, learning and teaching mathematics, learning and teaching science and assessment. It is hoped that the publication can add weight to the call for well-focused initial training and for ongoing professional support for all working with young children - the complexities of the learning-development continuum need to be asserted and understood. In this respect, further research is clearly needed and it is hoped that the future might witness a renewed commitment to substantially-funded early years research. The book is intended for both practitioners and researchers. Several of the reported research projects would lend themselves to replication by teachers seeking to explore their own practice. All have an integrity and rigour that can help raise the status and profile of early years research.

The book unifies classical continuum mechanics and turbulence modeling, i.e. the same fundamental concepts are used to derive model equations for material behaviour and turbulence closure and complements these with methods of dimensional analysis. The intention is to equip the reader with the ability to understand the complex nonlinear modeling in material behaviour and turbulence closure as well as to derive or invent his own models. Examples are mostly taken from environmental physics and geophysics.

Climate Change Politics in Europe

In the 21st century, the climate change debate is increasingly moving up the agenda. In this topical book, Lyn Jaggard evaluates the role of ideas in the evolution of the politics of climate change. She investigates the evolution of climate change policy in the European Union and specifically Germany's role in the international relations of climate change. Jaggard argues that Germany's federal system has facilitated the political mainstreaming of popular environmental concerns which has led to the development of effective environmental domestic and foreign policy-making, influencing both European and wider climate change policy.
