Energy and the Environment Cost- Benefit Analysis originates from a conference, the objective of which is to set a global standard to measure the cost and benefit of humanas production of energy. The book focuses on the analysis of the societal and ecological effects of such a production. It also enumerates some existing sources of energy. The book begins with a discussion on the survey of world energy resources. This topic is followed by a discussion on the utilization of fossil- fuel. A separate chapter focuses on the advantages and disadvantages of fusion power. The next section tackles the formation of solar energy systems for the production of electricity. Another section of the book is devoted to the effects of technological change and economic factors on supply and use of energy sources and production. The text can serve as a valuable tool for executives and engineers from the power industry, educators, scientists, environmentalists, students, and researchers in the field of energy creation and conservation.and no gamma radiation. Thus, the radiation from the naturally occurring OK would result in significantly more ionization per disintegration than would the man-made radionuclide, 3H. In addition, the average concentration factor for potassiumanbsp;...
