3 Gérer les changements climatiques. Climat, croissance, développement et équité - Nicholas Stern
Auteur : Nicholas Stern
Genre : Environnement
Le changement climatique est source d’immenses défis pour toute analyse éthique, économique et politique. Nous connaissons l’ampleur de l’action requise et les domaines dans lesquels il faut agir : efficacité énergétique, technologies sobres en carbone, déforestation. Nous avons une idée des technologies à développer. Nous comprenons bien les politiques économiques élémentaires qui incitent à la réduction des émissions, à l’arrêt de la déforestation et à la promotion d’un usage plus raisonné de notre environnement naturel et de ses ressources. Le défi consiste aujourd’hui à insuffler la volonté politique d’accomplir tous ces changements.

4 Governance for Drought Resilience - Hans Bressers, Nanny Bressers & Corinne Larrue
Auteur : Hans Bressers, Nanny Bressers & Corinne Larrue
Genre : Environnement
This book presents the findings of a team of scientists and practitioners who have been working on the project “Benefits of Governance in Drought Adaptation” (in short: the DROP project), which is included in the European Union’s INTERREG IVB NWE programme. The DROP governance team developed a Governance Assessment Tool (GAT), which allows the governance setting of a given region for planning and realizing drought adaptation measures to be assessed. Based on this assessment, recommendations can be developed for regional water authorities concerning how to operate most effectively towards increased drought resilience in this context. The GAT has been applied to six regions in Northwest Europe: Twente and Salland in the Netherlands, Eifel-Ruhr in Germany, Brittany in France, Somerset in the United Kingdom, and Flanders in Belgium. These regions are subject to drought aspects related

6 Resilience of Large Water Management Infrastructure - Faisal Hossain
Auteur : Faisal Hossain
Genre : Génie de l’environnement
Infrastructure that manages our water resources (such as, dams and reservoirs, irrigation systems, channels, navigation waterways, water and wastewater treatment facilities, storm drainage systems, urban water distribution and sanitation systems), are critical to all sectors of an economy. Realizing the importance of water infrastructures, efforts have already begun on understanding the sustainability and resilience of such systems under changing conditions expected in the future. 
The goal of this collected work is to raise awareness among civil engineers of the various implications of landscape change and non-climate drivers on the resilience of water management infrastructure. It identifies the knowledge gaps and then provides effective and complementary approaches to assimilate knowledge discovery on local (mesoscale)-to-regional landscape drivers to improve practices on de

Tout au long de son évolution architecturale et stylistique, le jardin n’a cessé de refléter une vision du monde en s’approchant d’un idéal de vie. À l’origine espace enclos, le jardin change d’échelle au xxe siècle, mû par la conscience d’une finitude écologique : il devient planétaire. Pour préserver cet espace soumis aux lois du marché et de la croissance à tout prix, le jardinier doit se mettre à l’écoute du génie naturel : imaginer, réaliser et entretenir le jardin dans son aspect dynamique, en respectant le développement des espèces et leurs migrations.

12 No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference - Greta Thunberg
Auteur : Greta Thunberg
Genre : Science et nature
The history-making, ground-breaking speeches of Greta Thunberg, the young activist who has become the voice of a generation

'Everything needs to change. And it has to start today'

In August 2018 a fifteen-year-old Swedish girl, Greta Thunberg, decided not to go to school one day. Her actions ended up sparking a global movement for action against the climate crisis, inspiring millions of pupils to go on strike for our planet, forcing governments to listen, and earning her a Nobel Peace Prize nomination.

This book brings you Greta in her own words, for the first time. Collecting her speeches that have made history across Europe, from the UN to mass street protests, No One Is Too Small to Make A Difference is a rallying cry for why we must all wake up and fight to protect the living planet, no matter how powerless we feel.

Auteur : Naomi Klein
Genre : Administration publique
Naomi Klein, author of the #1 international bestsellers, The Shock Doctrine and No Logo, returns with This Changes Everything, a must-read on how the climate crisis needs to spur transformational political change

We seem to have given up on any serious effort to prevent catastrophic climate change. Despite mounting scientific evidence, denialism is surging in many wealthy countries, and extreme fossil-fuel extraction gathers pace. Exposing the work of ideologues on the right who know the challenge this poses to the free market all too well, Naomi Klein also challenges the failing strategies of environmental groups. This Changes Everything argues that the deep changes required should not be viewed as punishments to fear, but as a kind of gift. It's time to stop running from the full implications of the crisis and begin to embrace them.

14 Who Rules the World? - Noam Chomsky
Auteur : Noam Chomsky
Genre : Science politique
The essential account of geopolitics right now, from one of our greatest living intellectuals - including a new afterword on President Donald Trump

Noam Chomsky: philosopher, political writer, fearless activist. No one has done more to question the hidden actors who govern our lives, calling the powers that be to account. Here he presents Who Rules the World?, his definitive account of those powers, how they work, and why we should be questioning them.

From the dark history of the US and Cuba to China's global rise, from torture memos to sanctions on Iran, this book investigates the defining issues of our times and exposes the hypocrisy at the heart of America's policies and actions. The world's political and financial elite are now operating almost totally unconstrained by the so-called democratic structure. With climate change and nuclear pro

Auteur : Edward Abbey
Genre : Biographies et mémoires
‘My favourite book about the wilderness’ Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild

In this shimmering masterpiece of American nature writing, Edward Abbey ventures alone into the canyonlands of Moab, Utah, to work as a seasonal ranger for the United States National Park Service.

Living out of a trailer, Abbey captures in rapt, poetic prose the landscape of the desert; a world of terracotta earth, empty skies, arching rock formations, cliffrose, juniper, pinyon pine and sand sage. His summers become spirit quests, taking him in search of wild horses and Ancient Puebloan petroglyphs, up mountains and across tribal lands, and down the Glen Canyon by river. He experiences both sides of his new home; its incredible beauty and its promise of liberation, but also its isolating, cruel side, at one point discovering a dead tourist at an isolated area of the Grand Canyon.

16 The Hot Zone - Richard Preston
Auteur : Richard Preston
Genre : Biologie
COMING TO NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC ON 27 MAY 2019
_________

In March 2014, the Ebola outbreak in West Africa was first reported. By October 2014, it had become the largest and deadliest occurrence of the disease.

Over 4,500 people have died. Almost 10,000 cases have been reported, across Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and the United States.

Impossible to ignore, The Hot Zone is the terrifying, true-life account of when this highly infectious virus spread from the rainforests of Africa to the suburbs of Washington, D.C in 1989. A secret SWAT team of soldiers and scientists were quickly tasked with halting the outbreak. And they did. But now, that very same virus is back. And we could be just one wrong move away from a pandemic.

17 Cradle to Cradle - Michael Braungart & William McDonough
Auteur : Michael Braungart & William McDonough
Genre : Génie de l’environnement
Recycling is good, isn’t it?

In this visionary book, chemist Michael Braungart and architect William McDonough challenge this status quo and put forward a manifesto for an intriguing and radically different philosophy of environmentalism.

"Reduce, reuse, recycle”. This is the standard “cradle to grave” manufacturing model dating back to the Industrial Revolution that we still follow today. In this thought-provoking read, the authors propose that instead of minimising waste, we should be striving to create value. This is the essence of Cradle to Cradle: waste need not to exist at all. By providing a framework of redesign of everything from carpets to corporate campuses, McDonough and Braungart make a revolutionary yet viable case for change and for remaking the way we make things.

18 Losing Earth - Nathaniel Rich
Auteur : Nathaniel Rich
Genre : Science et nature
'The excellent and appalling Losing Earth by Nathaniel Rich describes how close we came in the 70s to dealing with the causes of global warming and how US big business and Reaganite politicians in the 80s ensured it didn’t happen. Read it.' John Simpson

By 1979, we knew all that we know now about the science of climate change – what was happening, why it was happening, and how to stop it. Over the next ten years, we had the very real opportunity to stop it. Obviously, we failed.

Nathaniel Rich’s groundbreaking account of that failure – and how tantalizingly close we came to signing binding treaties that would have saved us all before the fossil fuels industry and politicians committed to anti-scientific denialism – is already a journalistic blockbuster, a full issue of the New York Times Magazine that has earned favorable comparisons t

Auteur : Thomas Heams
Genre : Science de la vie
" Qu'est-ce que la vie ? ", se demandent depuis des siècles naturalistes, biologistes et philosophes. Et si, pour tenter d'y répondre, on renonçait à donner du monde vivant une définition figée, pour mieux prendre en compte sa nature dynamique et ses échanges permanents avec le reste de l'univers ? De fait, la nature et maintenant les laboratoires recèlent un incroyable bestiaire d'infravies, des entités qui défient la classification binaire entre vivant et non-vivant. Plus surprenant encore, il ne s'agit pas d'exceptions mais, au contraire, des éléments mêmes sur lesquels repose l'existence du monde vivant.
Ce livre révèle ces infravies et les accueille dans une nouvelle perspective théorique. Il propose une caractérisation scientifique inédite du vivant, qui exige d'abandonner certaines des métaphores les plus puissantes de notre temps, comme celle du vivant-ma

For the first time ever, an international coalition of leading researchers, scientists and policymakers has come together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to climate change. All of the techniques described here - some well-known, some you may have never heard of - are economically viable, and communities throughout the world are already enacting them. From revolutionizing how we produce and consume food to educating girls in lower-income countries, these are all solutions which, if deployed collectively on a global scale over the next thirty years, could not just slow the earth's warming, but reach drawdown: the point when greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere peak and begin todecline.

A startling history of the Chernobyl disaster by Svetlana Alexievich, the winner of the Nobel prize in literature 2015

On 26 April 1986, at 1.23am, a series of explosions shook the Chernobyl nuclear reactor. Flames lit up the sky and radiation escaped to contaminate the land and poison the people for years to come. While officials tried to hush up the accident, Svetlana Alexievich spent years collecting testimonies from survivors - clean-up workers, residents, firefighters, resettlers, widows, orphans - crafting their voices into a haunting oral history of fear, anger and uncertainty, but also dark humour and love. A chronicle of the past and a warning for our nuclear future, Chernobyl Prayer shows what it is like to bear witness, and remember in a world that wants you to forget.

He shows how an active industry–government–academic partnership can provide the environment needed to promote such new creative demand and illustrates its potential through presentation of a Platinum Society Network that was launched on a regional basis in Japan in 2010 to facilitate the solution of common issu

Don't care about ecology? This book is for you. Timothy Morton, who has been called 'Our most popular guide to the new epoch' (Guardian), sets out to show us that whether we know it or not, we already have the capacity and the will to change the way we understand the place of humans in the world, and our very understanding of the term 'ecology'.

An essential overview of the problems of our world today -- and how we should prepare for tomorrow -- from the world's leading public intellectual

We have two choices. We can be pessimistic, give up, and help ensure that the worst will happen. Or we can be optimistic, grasp the opportunities that surely exist, and maybe help make the world a better place. Not much of a choice.

From peerless political thinker Noam Chomsky comes an exploration of rising neoliberalism, the refugee crisis in Europe, the Black Lives Matter movement, the dysfunctional US electoral system, and the prospects and challenges of building a movement for radical change.

Including four up-to-the-minute interviews on the 2016 American election campaign and global resistance to Trump, this Penguin Special is a concise introduction to Chomsky's ideas and his ta

Here, Colin Tudge travels from his own back garden round the world to explore the beauty, variety and ingenuity of trees everywhere: from how they live so long to how they talk to each other and why they came to exist in the first place. Lyrical and evocative, this book will make everyone fall in love with the trees around them.

Auteur : Hiroshi Komiyama & Koichi Yamada
Genre : Environnement
This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.

This book presents the "New Vision 2050," which adds the concept of the “platinum society” to the “Vision 2050”.

The 20th century was a century in which energy led the development of material civilization, resulting in deletion of resources, global warming and climate change. What form should sustainable material and energy take to protect the Earth? The "Vision 2050" was established 20 years ago as a model that we should pursue for the next half century. Fortunately, the world is on course for the Vision 2050.

The 21st century will be a century in which we seek qualitative richness, with the Vision 2050 as the material basis. That is, a “platinum society” that has resource self-sufficiency and resource symbiosis, and where people remain active throughout their lives and have a wide range of

Bjorn Lomborg argues that many of the elaborate and staggeringly expensive actions now being considered to meet the challenges of global warming ultimately will have little impact on the world’s temperature. He suggests that rather than focusing on ineffective solutions that will cost us trillions of dollars over the coming decades, we should be looking for smarter, more cost-effective approaches (such as massively increasing our commitment to green energy R&D) that will allow us to deal not only with climate change but also with other pressing global concerns, such as malaria and HIV/AIDS. And he considers why and how this debate has fostered an atmosphere in which dissenters are immediately demonized.

Auteur : Gregory Zuckerman
Genre : Secteurs et professions
The Frackers by Gregory Zuckerman, bestselling author of The Greatest Trade Ever, tells the untold story of the tycoons behind the US fracking controversy.

Things looked grim for American energy in 2006. Oil production was in steep decline and natural gas was hard to find. The Iraq War threatened the nation's already tenuous relations with the Middle East. China was rapidly industrializing and competing for resources. Major oil companies had just about given up on new discoveries on US soil, and a new energy crisis loomed.

But a handful of men believed everything was about to change.

By experimenting with hydraulic fracturing through extremely dense shale - a process now known as fracking - these 'wildcatters' started a revolution. In just a few years, they solved America's dependence on imported energy, triggered a global environmental con

New beings will emerge from existing artificial intelligence systems.

But this will not be the cruel, violent machine takeover of the planet imagined by sci-fi writers and film-makers.

In forty years, Earth's population will reach ten billion. Can our world support that? What kind of world will it be? Those answering these questions generally fall into two deeply divided groups--Wizards and Prophets, as Charles Mann calls them in this balanced, authoritative, nonpolemical new book. The Prophets, he explains, follow William Vogt, a founding environmentalist who believed that in using more than our planet has to give, our prosperity will lead us to ruin. Cut back! was his mantra.

Harvesting
Biosphere
42 Harvesting the Biosphere - Vaclav Smil
Auteur : Vaclav Smil
Genre : Environnement
An interdisciplinary and quantitative account of human claims on the biosphere's stores of living matter, from prehistoric hunting to modern energy production.

The biosphere—the Earth's thin layer of life—dates from nearly four billion years ago, when the first simple organisms appeared. Many species have exerted enormous influence on the biosphere's character and productivity, but none has transformed the Earth in so many ways and on such a scale as Homo sapiens. In Harvesting the Biosphere, Vaclav Smil offers an interdisciplinary and quantitative account of human claims on the biosphere's stores of living matter, from prehistory to the present day. Smil examines all harvests—from prehistoric man's hunting of megafauna to modern crop production—and all uses of harvested biomass, including energy, food, and raw materials. Without harvesting of the

Eutrophisation
44 L’eutrophisation - Chantal Gascuel, Florentina Moatar, Gilles Pinay, Alain Menesguen, Yves Souchon, Morgane le Moal, Alix Levain, Claire Étrillard, Alexandrine Pannard & Philippe Souchu
Auteur : Chantal Gascuel, Florentina Moatar, Gilles Pinay, Alain Menesguen, Yves Souchon, Morgane le Moal, Alix Levain, Claire Étrillard, Alexandrine Pannard & Philippe Souchu
Genre : Environnement
L’eutrophisation touche de nombreux lacs, réservoirs, rivières et zones côtières, en France et dans le monde. Elle génère des perturbations majeures pour les écosystèmes aquatiques et a des impacts sur les biens et les services associés, sur la santé humaine et sur les activités économiques. Dans certains espaces, elle est devenue une question socialement vive. Les débats sur l’identification des facteurs et des niveaux de risque d’eutrophisation ont conduit les ministères en charge de l’environnement et de l’agriculture à confier au CNRS, à l’Ifremer, à l’Inra et à Irstea, la réalisation d’une expertise scientifique collective permettant d’orienter les politiques publiques.

Cette expertise établit un état des lieux critique sur les connaissances scientifiques disponibles au niveau international sur les causes, les mécanismes, les consé

45 Sortir du pot au noir - Mireille Delmas-Marty
Auteur : Mireille Delmas-Marty
Genre : Droit
L’humanité serait-elle entrée dans le « pot au noir », cette zone au milieu des océans où les vents qui soufflent en sens contraires se neutralisent ou se combattent ? Dans un monde pris dans ces tourbillons, entre paralysie et naufrage, où trouver la boussole qui permettrait d’en sortir ?

Pour échapper au désordre, stabiliser l’instable et penser l’imprévisible, il ne suffit pas de placer l’humanité et ses valeurs au centre du monde, comme a tenté de le faire la Déclaration universelle des droits de l’homme en 1948. Il faut réguler les vents autour de principes communs et inventer la boussole d’un humanisme élargi à la planète qui guiderait les humains sur les routes imprévisibles du monde.

50 The World Without Us - Alan Weisman
Auteur : Alan Weisman
Genre : Environnement
A penetrating, page-turning tour of a post-human Earth

In The World Without Us, Alan Weisman offers an utterly original approach to questions of humanity's impact on the planet: he asks us to envision our Earth, without us.In this far-reaching narrative, Weisman explains how our massive infrastructure would collapse and finally vanish without human presence; which everyday items may become immortalized as fossils; how copper pipes and wiring would be crushed into mere seams of reddish rock; why some of our earliest buildings might be the last architecture left; and how plastic, bronze sculpture, radio waves, and some man-made molecules may be our most lasting gifts to the universe.
The World Without Us reveals how, just days after humans disappear, floods in New York's subways would start eroding the city's foundations, and how, as the world's cities
