Greenhouse Gases and Clay Minerals: Enlightening Down-to-Earth Road Map to Basic Science of Clay-Greenhouse Gas Interfaces (Green Energy and
This book is a systematic compilation of the most recent body of knowledge in the rapidly developing research area of greenhouse gas interaction with clay systems. Unexpected results of the most recent studies – such as unusually high sorption capacity and sorption hysteresis of swelling clays –stimulated theoretical activity in this fascinating field. Classical molecular dynamics (MD) explains swelling caused by intercalation of water molecules and to a certain degree of CO2 molecules in clay interlayer. However, unusual frequency shifts in the transient infrared fingerprints of the intercalated molecules and the following accelerated carbonation can be tackled only via quantum mechanical modeling. This book provides a streamlined (from simple to complex) guide to the most advanced research efforts in this field.

21st Century Complete Guide to Biogas and Methane: Agricultural Recovery, Manure Digesters, AgSTAR, Landfill Methane, Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction and Global Methane
This unique ebook compilation, formatted for flowing-text reading, provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of biogas, methane, farm recovery processes, manure digesters and processing, the AgSTAR program, landfill methane gas, and the Global Methane Initiative.AgSTAR is focused on livestock producers (typically swine and dairy farms) for implementing methane recovery systems appropriate for confined livestock facilities that handle liquid or slurry manure. Gas recovery systems and digester technologies may provide enhanced environmental (air and water) and financial performance when compared to traditional waste management systems such as manure storages and lagoons. When livestock manure that is handled as a liquid or slurry decomposes anaerobically (without the presence of oxygen), it produces biogas. In waste management systems that are designed for treatment, such as digesters and anaerobic lagoons, biogas consists of about 60 to 70% methane and 30 to 40% carbon dioxide. When these gases are collected and transmitted to a combustion device, such as an electric generator, boiler, or absorption cooler, energy is produced. The captured biogas, which is 60 to 70 percent methane, can be used to generate electricity or replace fossil fuels for other energy needs.Municipal so...

Greenhouse Gas Carbon Dioxide Mitigation: Science and
Any mention of the "greenhouse effect" tends to ignite controversy. While the rising atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases-especially carbon dioxide- are certainly among the most pressing issues today, theoretical and perceived consequences have been subject to conjecture and misinformation.That raging debate has obscured an important fact: scientists and engineers are hard at work on methods to reduce CO2 emissions, and devise practical methods for their remediation.Greenhouse Gas Carbon Dioxide Mitigation: Science and Technologysheds light on the most recent advancements, documented by two of the world's leading researchers on CO2.Aware of the complexity and still-unknown factors behind climatic change, the authors consider the need to make CO2 mitigation viable for both environmental and economic gain. To that end, Professor Halmann offers new insights into interesting chemical pathways for the conversion of CO2 to useful products. Steinberg adds real-life engineering solutions, applicable to heavy CO2-producing industrial processes, and improving efficiency of energy conversion.Exciting theories and pilot projects are also testing the potential for CO2 utilization, conversion, reduction, and disposal.

Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories: Interim Results from the U.S. Country Studies Program (Environmental Science and Technology
International concern for the continued growth of greenhouse gas emissions, and the potentially damaging consequences of resultant global climate change, led to the signing of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change by 155 nations at the Earth Summit in June 1992. The Convention came into force on 21 March 1994, three months after receiving its 50th ratification. All Parties to the Convention are required to compile, periodically update, and publish national inventories of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions and sinks using comparable methodologies. In support of this process, the US Country Studies Program (US CSP) is providing financial and technical assistance to 56 developing and transition countries for conducting national inventories. This book presents the results of preliminary national inventories prepared by countries participating in the US CSP that are ready to share their interim findings. In some cases, inventories were prepared with support from other organizations. Preliminary inventories of twenty countries in Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe and the Newly Independent States, and Latin America are presented, as well as regional and global syntheses of the national results. The regional and global syntheses also discuss results of ele...

Slaying the Sky Dragon - Death of the Greenhouse Gas
Even before publication, Slaying the Sky Dragon was destined to be the benchmark for future generations of climate researchers. This is the world's first and only full volume refutation of the greenhouse gas theory of man-made global warming. Nine leading international experts methodically expose how willful fakery and outright incompetence were hidden within the politicized realm of government climatology. Applying a thoughtful and sympathetic writing style, the authors help even the untrained mind to navigate the maze of atmospheric thermodynamics. Step-by-step the reader is shown why the so-called greenhouse effect cannot possibly exist in nature. By deft statistical analysis the cornerstones of climate equations – incorrectly calculated by an incredible factor of three - are exposed then shattered. This volume is a scientific tour de force and the game-changer for international environmental policymakers as well as being a joy to read for hard-pressed taxpayers everywhere.

Methods for Measuring Greenhouse Gas Balances and Evaluating Mitigation Options in Smallholder
This book provides standards and guidelines forquantifying greenhouse gas emissions and removals in smallholder agricultural systemsand comparing options for climate change mitigation based on emissionreductions and livelihood trade-offs. Globally, agriculture is directlyresponsible for about 11% of annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and inducesan additional 17% through land use change, mostly in developing countries.Farms in the developing countries of sub-Saharan Africa and Asia arepredominately managed by smallholders, with 80% of land holdings smaller thanten hectares. However, little to no information exists on greenhouse gasemissions and mitigation potentials in smallholder agriculture. Greenhouse gas measurements in agricultureare expensive, time consuming, and error prone, challenges only exacerbatedby the heterogeneity of smallholder systems and landscapes. Concerns overmethodological rigor, measurement costs, and the diversity of approaches,coupled with the demand for robust information suggest it is germane for thescientific community to establish standards of measurements for quantifying GHGemissions from smallholder agriculture. Standard guidelines for use byscientists, development organizations will help generate reliable data onemissions baselines and a...

Surviving Global Warming: Why Eliminating Greenhouse Gases Isn't
A climate expert makes a compelling case for implementing adaptation strategies in addition to reducing greenhouse gases to lessen the destructive effects of human-caused climate change.Though the Paris Agreement on climate change was a significant achievement, most authorities agree that its measures to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions will be insufficient to offset the forecasted increase in global warming. Even in the unlikely case of ideal compliance, the Earth will still experience major climate-driven damages. Given this reality, climate expert Roger A. Sedjo argues in this book that a Plan B is required. He makes a compelling case that doing more of the same, by focusing only on the mitigation plan of the Paris Agreement, will leave humanity increasingly vulnerable; instead, we must also begin planning adaptation strategies--Plan B--which enable societies to anticipate and protect against the worst effects of inevitable climate change. The author examines several areas where environmental damage could be severe. Sea-level rise is a major concern and measures could be, and in some cases are now being, undertaken to protect coastal areas. The author also addresses the need for more robust action to ward off the likely decline in agricultural productivity, destruction of fores...
