The Citizen's Guide to Climate Success by
Call Number: HD 9502 .A2 J328 2020
Drawing on the latest research, Mark Jaccard shows us how to recognize the absolutely essential actions (decarbonizing electricity and transport) and policies (regulations that phase out coal plants and gasoline vehicles, carbon tariffs). that we can all make to our lifestyles to reduce emissions and contribute to the urgently needed affordable energy transition in developed and developing countries.
Energy, Economics, and Ethics by
Call Number: HD 9502 .A2 F7385 2020
Alternative energy forms including solar, wind, water, and bio-fuels are challenging the established energy sources that have fuelled the industrial era for the past century. This book examines tge political, economic, and ethical lessons can be learned from how coal, oil, and natural gas became the power of the 20th century and how they can affect future decisions about emerging alternative energy choices.
Driven (eBook) by
Davies profiles the industry's key players from the early enthusiasm to their growing awareness that while artificial intelligence isn't yet ready for rush-hour traffic, driverless cars are poised to remake how the world moves. Driven explores this exciting quest to transform transportation and change our lives.
The Unwritten Laws of Engineering by
Call Number: TA 157 .K525 2019
This new, second edition of the 1944 classic serves as a crucial compilation of "house rules," or a professional code. It addresses three areas: what the beginner needs to learn at once; "laws" relating chiefly to engineering executives; and purely personal considerations for engineers. Packed with contemporary examples, this new volume is a must for those entering the engineering field or those interested in improving their professional effectiveness. Key additions and changes have been included for today's engineers, and this edition is written in a style more familiar to today's readers.
Technical Writing A-Z by
Call Number: T 11 .Y69 2020
