4 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.

7 Junkyard Planet - Adam Minter
Auteur : Adam Minter
Genre : Entreprise et management
How can garbage turn into gold? What does recycling have to do with globalization? Where does all that stuff we throw away go, anyway?

When you drop your Diet Coke can or yesterday's newspaper in the recycling bin, where does it go? Probably halfway around the world, to people and places that clean up what you don't want and turn it into something you can't wait to buy. In Junkyard Planet, Adam Minter-veteran journalist and son of an American junkyard owner-travels deeply into a vast, often hidden, 500-billion-dollar industry that's transforming our economy and environment.

Minter takes us from back-alley Chinese computer recycling operations to recycling factories capable of processing a jumbo jet's worth of trash every day. Along the way, we meet an international cast of characters who have figured out how to squeeze Silicon Valley-scale fortunes fr

9 Cadillac Desert - Marc Reisner & Lawrie Mott
Auteur : Marc Reisner & Lawrie Mott
Genre : Génie de l’environnement
"The definitive work on the West's water crisis." --Newsweek

The story of the American West is the story of a relentless quest for a precious resource: water. It is a tale of rivers diverted and dammed, of political corruption and intrigue, of billion-dollar battles over water rights, of ecological and economic disaster. In his landmark book, Cadillac Desert, Marc Reisner writes of the earliest settlers, lured by the promise of paradise, and of the ruthless tactics employed by Los Angeles politicians and business interests to ensure the city's growth. He documents the bitter rivalry between two government giants, the Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in the competition to transform the West. Based on more than a decade of research, Cadillac Desert is a stunning expose and a dramatic, intriguing history of the crea

17 What Doesn't Kill Us - Scott Carney
Auteur : Scott Carney
Genre : Sports et plein air
What Doesn't Kill Us, a New York Times bestseller, traces our evolutionary journey back to a time when survival depended on how well we adapted to the environment around us.

Our ancestors crossed deserts, mountains, and oceans without even a whisper of what anyone today might consider modern technology. Those feats of endurance now seem impossible in an age where we take comfort for granted. But what if we could regain some of our lost evolutionary strength by simulating the environmental conditions of our ancestors?

Investigative journalist and anthropologist Scott Carney takes up the challenge to find out: Can we hack our bodies and use the environment to stimulate our inner biology? Helping him in his search for the answers is Dutch fitness guru Wim Hof, whose ability to control his body temperature in extreme cold has sparked a whirlwind o

20 Reimagining Capitalism - Rebecca Henderson
Auteur : Rebecca Henderson
Genre : Entreprise et management
Free market capitalism is one of humanity's greatest inventions, and the greatest source of prosperity the world has ever seen. But it's also on the verge of destroying the planet and destabilizing society in its single-minded pursuit of maximizing shareholder value.

Rebecca Henderson, McArthur University Professor at Harvard University, argues for a new framework; one that can simultaneously make a positive societal impact by confronting the realities of the environment and the need to address social and economic inequality, while also delivering sustained financial performance to ensure economic growth that brings prosperity and wellbeing to society as a whole.

Drawing on the lessons of companies from around the world who are acting on this responsibility - who are not only surviving but are thriving, becoming leaders in their industries and beginning to drive t

24 Ecological Footprint - Mathis Wackernagel, Bert Beyers & Katharina Rout
Auteur : Mathis Wackernagel, Bert Beyers & Katharina Rout
Genre : Environnement
The only metric that tracks how much nature we have – and how much nature we use

Our economy is running a Bernie Madoff-style Ponzi scheme with the planet. We use future resources to run the present, using more than Earth can replenish. Like any such scheme, this works for a limited time, followed by a crash.

Avoiding ecological bankruptcy requires rigorous resource accounting — a challenging task, but doable with the right tools.

Ecological Footprint accounting, first introduced in the 1990s and continuously developed, continues to be the only metric that compares overall human demand on nature with what our planet can renew — its biocapacity — and distils this into one number: how many Earths we use.

Ecological Footprint provides a complete introduction, covering:

27 Smoke & Mirrors - Gemma Milne
Auteur : Gemma Milne
Genre : Science et nature
Young Scottish writer Gemma Milne argues that we need urgently to refine our vision of what is to come If we are to succeed in building the future that we actually want. She believes that we need to redefine the aims we should be pursuing based on a realistic understanding of what is actually going on in science and technology right now.

We have to focus on the real innovations that we will require along the way. We need to champion critical thinking by empowering as many people as possible to be able to question what real progress is being made. We need to look beyond the blind idealism and wilful hype which blinkers us as to what is really going on and what is realistically achievable.

Each chapter focuses on a different 'blinker', in effect, which stops us from seeing the bigger picture, either through fear or cognitive dissonance, whether this is all-too-effe

28 Am Tag zu heiß und nachts zu hell - Hanns-Christian Gunga
Auteur : Hanns-Christian Gunga
Genre : Génie de l’environnement
Die ideale Umwelt für den menschlichen Körper ist ein mildes Klima am Meer. Doch die meisten Menschen leben unter anderen Bedingungen. Oder setzen sich extremen Umwelten aus, steigen auf Berge, tauchen, fliegen ins Weltall - und überleben dabei Belastungen, die lange unmenschlich waren. Hanns-Christian Gunga untersucht die Auswirkungen von Hitze und Kälte, aber auch von Schichtarbeit und Langstreckenflügen auf den Körper. Er macht deutlich, dass der Anpassung des Menschen an veränderte Umwelten enge physiologische und psychologische Grenzen gesetzt sind; gleichzeitig verändert sich das Klima. Daraus entsteht ein biologischer, aber auch ein politischer Konflikt: Der menschliche Körper passt immer weniger in unseren Lebensraum.

30 Secondhand - Adam Minter
Auteur : Adam Minter
Genre : Économie
From the author of Junkyard Planet, a journey into the surprising afterlives of our former possessions.

Downsizing. Decluttering. A parent's death. Sooner or later, all of us are faced with things we no longer need or want. But when we drop our old clothes and other items off at a local donation center, where do they go? Sometimes across the country-or even halfway across the world-to people and places who find value in what we leave behind.

In Secondhand, journalist Adam Minter takes us on an unexpected adventure into the often-hidden, multibillion-dollar industry of reuse: thrift stores in the American Southwest to vintage shops in Tokyo, flea markets in Southeast Asia to used-goods enterprises in Ghana, and more. Along the way, Minter meets the fascinating people who handle-and profit from-our rising tide of discarded stuff, and asks a pressi

Auteur : Neil Nathan
Genre : Forme et santé
Millions of people are suffering from chronic illnesses that, unbeknownst to them, are the result of exposure to environmental toxins and infectious agents such as mold and Borrelia, which causes Lyme disease. Millions. Because the symptoms of these illnesses are so varied and unusual, many of these individuals have sought medical care only to be dismissed, as if what they are experiencing is "in their head."

39 Energy Storage Options and Their Environmental Impact - R E Hester & R M Harrison
Auteur : R E Hester & R M Harrison
Genre : Génie de l’environnement
Recent decades have seen huge growth in the renewable energy sector, spurred on by concerns about climate change and dwindling supplies of fossil fuels. One of the major difficulties raised by an increasing reliance on renewable resources is the inflexibility when it comes to controlling supply in response to demand. For example, solar energy can only be produced during the day. The development of methods for storing the energy produced by renewable sources is therefore crucial to the continued stability of global energy supplies.

However, as with all new technology, it is important to consider the environmental impacts as well as the benefits. This book brings together authors from a variety of different backgrounds to explore the state-of-the-art of large-scale energy storage and examine the environmental impacts of the main categories based on the types of energy stored.

The role of water in our communities, from local to regional and right up to global levels, poses a series of key questions about climate change, about the anthropogenic impact on the environment, and about all the interconnected actions and events that affect the availability and quality of the resource. All these questions  share a common demand for more scientific knowledge and information. In this particular context the disciplinary boundaries are fading, and there is a growing need to create broader connections and wider collaborative interdisciplinary groups, aimed at building an integrated knowledge-base to serve not only stakeholders but also the whole of society.

Sustainable technologies for water supply are urgently needed if water has to be supplied to billions of less fortunate people with inadequate access to water. These technologies must be simple, less expensive, less energy intensive, and easy to maintain for their adaptation among the poor masses.

Four appropriate technologies are discussed here: solar pasteurization, membrane desalination, natural filtration (riverbank filtration), and solar distillation. Solar pasteurization can be a useful means of producing water at remote, but sunny locations where fuel may not be easily available for boiling water. Membrane desalination will remain as a viable means of drinking water production for individual households to large communities. Various membrane filtration techniques as well as the means to “democratize” membrane filtration have been presented. Riverbank filtration is a

45 Water Governance: Challenges and Prospects - Amarjit Singh, Dipankar Saha & Avinash C. Tyagi
Auteur : Amarjit Singh, Dipankar Saha & Avinash C. Tyagi
Genre : Sciences de la Terre
The book is the first of its kind to deal with almost the entire swath of water resources assessment, development and sustainable management. The idea of the book crystallized during the long journey of the Editors on various facets of water issues in India and abroad during their extended association, at all levels with the Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, as well as International Organizations dealing with water. Currently water-stressed, India is likely to become water scarce in not too distant a future. The global freshwater supply and its sustainable use for human consumption, and conservation of the ecosystem have never come under such a rigorous scrutiny before. The unplanned and reckless exploitation of this precious resource have led to a crisis situation, compounded by a real threat of climate change. This book is, there

46 Arctic Marine Resource Governance and Development - Niels Vestergaard, Brooks A. Kaiser, Linda Fernandez & Joan Nymand Larsen
Auteur : Niels Vestergaard, Brooks A. Kaiser, Linda Fernandez & Joan Nymand Larsen
Genre : Génie de l’environnement
This book is based on presentations from the Conference ‘Arctic Marine Resource Governance’ held in Reykjavik Iceland in October 2015. The book is divided into four main themes: 1. Global management and institutions for Arctic marine resources 2. Resource stewards and users: local and indigenous co-management 3. Governance gaps in Arctic marine resource management and 4. Multi-scale, ecosystem-based, Arctic marine resource management’. The ecosystem changes underway in the Arctic region are expected to have significant impacts on living resources in both the short and long run, and current actions and policies adopted over such resource governance will have serious and ultimately irreversible consequences in the near and long terms.

48 Qanat Knowledge - Ali Asghar Semsar Yazdi & Majid Labbaf Khaneiki
Auteur : Ali Asghar Semsar Yazdi & Majid Labbaf Khaneiki
Genre : Génie de l’environnement
This book offers a ready solution for those who wish to learn more about this fascinating part of our water history and makes accessible to the wider world the traditional knowledge gained from building and maintaining qanats for more than 2,500 years.  There is much more here than a summary of the nature and distribution of qanats, and a more extensive journey through the philosophy, methods, tools, and terminology of qanat design and digging than previously assembled.  

Where does one begin to dig to ensure that the qanat tunnel will flow with water?  How are practical considerations of landscape factored into the design?  How are water quality and discharge measured?  How does excavation proceed through bedrock and unconsolidated soil and how is this knowledge of geology and pedology acquired?  How are vertical wells and tunnels excavated
