Biofuels for Transport: Global Potential and Implications for Sustainable Energy and Agriculture

Biofuels for Transport: Global Potential and Implications for Sustainable Energy and Agriculture by Worldwatch Institute
Routledge | July 31, 2007 | English | ISBN: 1844074226 | 336 pages | PDF | 5 MB

The world is on the verge of an unprecedented increase in the production and use of biofuels for transport. The combination of rising oil prices, issues of security, climate instability and pollution, deepening poverty in rural and agricultural areas, and a host of improved technologies, is propelling governments to enact powerful incentives for the use of these fuels, which is in turn sparking investment.

On the heels of their excellent Family Album, the new Agriculture shows again that the Wentus Blues Band deserves greater attention. With a snappy version of Lonnie Brooks’ “Brand New Mojo Hand” the lone cover amid 11 originals that span upbeat shuffles (“Moonshine”), push-pull soul (“Take It Away”), slow-drags done Muddy Waters-style (“Passenger Blues”), roots rock (“Love Bug”), uptown slow blues (“Here in the Night”), and raging country-blues boogies (“Biscuit Roller”), these Finns play an electrifying brand of blues not far from Omar & the Howlers. Juho Kinaret’s vocals are appropriately wild, and the guitars of Niko Riippa and Kim Wikman are crisp, clean, and penetrating. ~ by Tom Hyslop, Blues Revue

American agriculture has doubled its use of pesticides since the publication of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring in 1962. Agriculture is the nation's leading cause of non-point-source water pollution—runoffs of pesticides, nutrients, and sediments into streams, rivers, lakes, and oceans. In Agroecology in Action, Keith Douglass Warner describes agroecology, an emerging scientific response to agriculture's environmental crises, and offers detailed case studies of ways in which growers, scientists, agricultural organizations, and public agencies have developed innovative, ecologically based techniques to reduce reliance on agrochemicals.

Urban Air Pollution in Asian Cities: Status, Challenges and Management
Dieter Schwela | ISBN: 1844073750 | PDF | 297 pages | 2006 | 2 MB

This volume is the most current and comprehensive assessment and comparison of the status and drivers of urban air pollution in twenty Asian cities and the Asian region, covering the effects on the environment, human health, agriculture and cultural heritage and the future implications for planning, transport and energy industries. National and local governments have begun to develop air quality management (AQM) strategies to address the deterioration in urban air quality, however the scope and effectiveness of such strategies varies widely. This book benchmarks these air quality management strategies, looks at successes and failures in these cities and presents strategies for improving air quality management in cities across Asia and the rest of our rapidly urbanizing world.
