An Introduction to Global Warming and Pollution by Mark Jacobson

pollution and global warming

This new revised edition of Mark Jacobson’s classic text provides an exhaustive introduction to our current knowledge about global warming and pollution, and the key political and technical issues affecting our ability to fix these problems. As the book’s title indicates, this is a must-have guide to solving our global energy and environmental challenges.

Today, it is estimated that the world’s population is increasing by nearly 400 million people every year. This increase is not simply a shift in the global distribution of wealth; many of the most resource-rich areas of the world have experienced a marked increase in population growth over recent years. In addition, it is important to remember that today, more people are living in high-density cities than ever before.

This rapid rise in population is leading to a rapid rise in the consumption of energy and other natural resources. This rapid rise in consumption has also led to a significant increase in the demand for energy for our daily lives, and the associated increase in pollution and greenhouse gases. Unfortunately, the cost of producing energy on a large scale is now making it prohibitive to many countries, causing increased pressure for increased investment in research and development efforts to reduce these costs.

Health Effects Of Pollutants

In the past, scientists and environmental activists focused primarily on the health effects of pollutants on humans. In the present day, however, the focus of attention has shifted to the broader question of how the natural environment influences the behavior of humans. The result is that scientists and environmental activists are increasingly focusing their attention on the relationship between pollution, global warming, and the Earth’s climate.

A clear and compelling narrative is provided throughout this text, especially throughout the chapters on the scientific and political debate that led to the first attempts to control global warming. This story is further developed in the chapters dealing with various aspects of pollution and global warming.

Throughout the text, we are presented with the voices of people from all over the world, including politicians, scientists, journalists, environmentalists, and many ordinary citizens. All of these individuals share a common interest in the ongoing struggle to protect our environment and prevent further degradation of the environment through global warming. In many cases, the authors even provide personal testimonials by people who have been personally impacted by global warming.

Impact Of Increased Population

Chapter four of this text addresses the role of technology and the Internet in increasing pollution. We learn the impact of increased pollution on our planet through a detailed review of the technological and economic trends related to pollution. We are also introduced to a range of scientific and technical details that can help us understand why the current levels of global warming are what they are, and why scientists are unable to pinpoint a “smoking gun” to prove the causes and effects of global warming.

Overall, the book covers some of the most important issues related to pollution and global warming in a clear, concise manner. As with any book, one would want to read a book that addresses a broad range of topics.

Final Verdict

However, it is unfortunate that the book that was created as a reference for scientists and experts, yet was never marketed to the general public – perhaps because it is such a comprehensive and thorough overview of these issues and so comprehensive in nature, that it appears to be so.
