Contents Notes
Setting the Stage: The 411 on Energy Basics -- Wind Power: Where Eagles Don't Dare -- Solar Energy -- Hydropower -- Biomass/Bioenergy -- -- Geothermal Energy -- Marine and Hydrokinetic Energy -- Fuel Cells -- Carbon Capture and Sequestration -- Appendix 1. Conversion Factors -- Appendix 2. Definitions of Terrorism-Related Terms. "All energy sources affect the environment in which we live. While fossil fuels may essentially do more harm, renewable energy sources can also pose a threat to the environment. Allowing for the various renewable energy sources: solar, wind, hydro, biomass, and geothermal, Environmental Impacts of Renewable Energy examines the environmental effects of all available renewable or alternative sources, as they increasingly play a large part in our energy supply, and provides a counterargument about the benefits of renewable energy. This book discusses both the merits and the physical, mechanical, electrical, and environmental limitations of renewable sources of energy. It discusses the pros and cons of renewable energy, addresses environmental issues and concerns, and determines ways to avoid or minimize these impacts."--Publisher's description.
