We published a book entitled "Energy: Sources, Utilization, Legislation, Sustainability, Illinois as Model State". It is published on the eve of the December 2015 adoption of the global agreement in Paris, France (COP21) that for the first time asks all countries to reduce or rein in their greenhouse gas emissions to slow global warming.
ABOUT THE BOOK: It is an 800-page premier book on energy as it relates to a state, a province, a country, or a community within a state. The book presents various kinds of energy sources; ways to convert energy for end use; better use of energy towards conservation; energy and environmental sustainability; and legislative ways to combat climate change, which is the major consequence of high carbon economies. As a very proper model-state, the State of Illinois was chosen since it has the largest overall fossil energy reserves, including the largest strippable bituminous coal reserves; the largest user of nuclear energy in the USA and investing in all kinds of renewable energies including wind energy, solar energy, biofuels, geothermal energy and various energy storage options.
Readesrship: We wrote the book to educate the public (including students, energy engineers and planers, as well as state- and country-wide policy makers) about all aspects of energy including energy sources, energy utilization, legislation related to better use and move towards renewable energy and sustainability. This book, while it is educational to students of energy, it also serves as a road map for energy planners and policy makers, energy-related engineers and scientists, citizens and community leaders, who are concerned about energy in general. In short this book is the guideline and recipe to success for a world with zero emission of greenhouse gases and without global warming.
