Ein wachrüttelndes Fragebuch über die radioaktive Strahlenbelastung. Die deutschen Atomkraftwerke sollen abgeschaltet werden. Um den Strom aus regenerativen Quellen transportieren zu können, wird das Stromnetz ausgebaut. Neben den schon bekannten Konsequenzen aus den geplanten Hochspannungstrassen wird die Frage beleuchtet, ob weitere Konsequenzen bisher unberücksichtigt blieben. Werden die geplanten Gleichstromtrassen zu einer radioaktiven Belastung führen? Für Laien und von einem Nicht-Fachmann geschrieben, wird das notwendige Basiswissen leichtverdaulich vermittelt, der aktuelle Stand der Dinge dargestellt und die sich zwangsläufig aufdrängenden Fragen nachdrücklich gestellt.

Further, proposals for answer of those difficulties usually concentration on the nationwide point, while the issues are worldwide. The authors argue that many of the demanding situations the planet faces are either severe and interconnected. upward push and Fall of the Carbon Civilisation takes an international point of view in its remedy of varied solutions:
• renewable energy;
• nuclear energy;
• power efficiency;
• carbon sequestration; and
It additionally addresses the chance that practical ideas can't be completed until eventually the essentially moral query of worldwide fairness – either throughout countries at the present time and in addition inter-generational – is totally addressed. Such an procedure also will contain reorienting the worldwide economic system clear of an emphasis on progress and towards the direct pride of simple human wishes for all of the Earth’s people.
Rise and Fall of the Carbon Civilisation is geared toward the various individuals of the general public with an information of weather switch, yet who desire to discover extra approximately how we have to reply to the problem. it's going to even be of curiosity to technical pros, in addition to postgraduate scholars and researchers, from the environmental and engineering technology sectors.
