About this title

Synopsis:

Emphasizes climate change as an energy-related environmental issue.

Energy, Environment, and Climate, Second Edition, is the most contemporary book for the energy course. Written for non-science majors, the text presents the physical concepts in easy-to-understand language and asks students to apply those concepts to contemporary energy issues. Students learn to analyze the important questions that face today’s citizens and deal with the answers both qualitatively and quantitatively. End-of-chapter questions provide an opportunity for students to practice what they’ve learned and provide instructors with questions that can be debated in class.
