  • Notes

    Climate engineering -- which could slow the pace of global warming by injecting reflective particles into the upper atmosphere -- has emerged in recent years as an extremely controversial technology. And for good reason: it carries unknown risks and it may undermine commitments to conserving energy. Some critics also view it as an immoral human breach of the natural world. The latter objection, David Keith argues in _A Scientist's Case for Climate Engineering_, is groundless; we have been using technology to alter our environment for years. But he agrees that there are large issues at stake. A leading scientist long concerned about climate change, Keith offers no na??ve proposal for an easy fix to what is perhaps the most challenging question of our time; climate engineering is no silver bullet. But he argues that after decades during which very little progress has been made in reducing carbon emissions we must put this technology on the table and consider it responsib y. That doesn't mean we will deploy it, and it doesn't mean that we can abandon efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But we must understand fully what research needs to be done and how the technology might be designed and used. This book provides a clear and accessible overview of what the costs and risks might be, and how climate engineering might fit into a larger program for managing climate change.

  • Multiobjective Decision-Making for Solid Waste Management in a Carbon-Regulated Environment

    Both short-term and long-term planning of solid waste management (SWM) requires the inclusion of multiscale sustainability criteria such as cost- benefit-risk consideration, recycling effect, and global-warming potential (GWP). This chapter demonstrates a holistic integration of these criteria to optimize system planning in a typical SWM system using comparative multiobjective decision analyses. The GaBi software package was used to estimate the possible greenhouse gas emissions throughout the scenario-based design process. The chapter examines the GWP impact in a real-world SWM system to demonstrate that the traditional cost-effectiveness principle and cost- benefit analysis cannot permit sustainable development related to SWM. Thus, the case study in the chapter is designed to explore the potential impact to an SWM system under a global-scale, carbon-regulated environment with local- scale material/energy recycling considerations. To achieve the study goals, five management scenarios were configured and compared to demonstrate the importance of sustainability concerns in an SWM system.

    The globally averaged surface temperature of the Earth has increased during the past century by about 0.7°C. Most of the increase can be attributed to the greenhouse effect, the increase in the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide that is emitted when fossil fuels are burned to produce energy.The book begins with the important distinction between weather and climate, followed by data showing how carbon dioxide has increased and the incontrovertible evidence that it is caused by burning fossil fuels (i.e., coal, oil, and natural gas). I also address the inevitable skepticism that global warming arouses and offer a number of responses to the global warming skeptics. After dealing with the skeptics, I analyze both the current and future effects of global warming. These future effects are based on scenarios or "storylines" put forth by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis. In closing, I address the controversial (and grim) suggestion that we ave already passed the "tipping point," which is the time after which, regardless of our future actions, global warming will cause considerable hardship on human society. I intend this book to be approachable for all concerned citizens, but especially students of the sciences and engineering who will soon be in a position to make a difference in the areas of energy and the environment. I have tried to frame the debate in terms of what the engineering community must do to help combat global warming. We have no choice but to think in terms of global environmental constraints as we design new power plants, factories, automobiles, buildings, and homes. The best thing for scientists to do is to present what we know, clearly separating what is known from what is suspected, in a non-apocalyptic manner. If matters are clearly and passionately presented to the public, we must be prepared to accept the will of the people. This presents the scientific community with an enormous res onsibility, perhaps unlike any we have had in the past.

  • Conclusion

    Global warming skeptics often fall back on the argument that the scientific case for global warming is all model predictions, nothing but simulation; they warn us that we need to wait for real data, "sound science." In A Vast Machine Paul Edwards has news for these doubters: without models, there are no data. Today, no collection of signals or observations--even from satellites, which can "see" the whole planet with a single instrument--becomes global in time and space without passing through a series of data models. Everything we know about the world's climate we know through models. Edwards offers an engaging and innovative history of how scientists learned to understand the atmosphere --to measure it, trace its past, and model its future. Edwards argues that all our knowledge about climate change comes from three kinds of computer models: simulation models of weather and climate; reanalysis models, which recreate climate history from historical weather data; and data models, used to combine and adjust measurements from many different sources. Meteorology creates knowledge through an infrastructure (weather stations and other data platforms) that covers the whole world, making global data. This infrastructure generates information so vast in quantity and so diverse in quality and form that it can be understood only by computer analysis--making data global. Edwards describes the science behind the scientific consensus on climate change, arguing that over the years data and models have converged to create a stable, reliable, and trustworthy basis for the reality of global warming.

  • Why Are Low???Voltage and Low???Energy Devices Desired?

    In the twentieth century, central processing unit (CPU) revealed dramatic advances in device performance and the guideline seemed to be ignored. However, in the 1990s, CPU designers noticed the limitations of CPU cooling efficiency, which triggered an urgent and ongoing discussion of low???power device technology. Business opportunities based on information technology have increased in the real world without taking account of the issues raised by technologies such as cloud computing and datacenter construction, which have rapidly increased global energy consumption. This chapter talks about viable and innovative ideas on semiconductor device technologies to suppress such global???warming factors. Information technology has widened perspectives on improving the quality of our future social life. Many companies are creating highly desirable products in the field of sensing technology, such as house monitoring, office monitoring, traffic monitoring, agriculture monitoring, space monitoring, defense monitoring, and so on.

  • Green Devices and Hardware

    Electronic devices have become ubiquitous and are an intrinsic part of many aspects of our lives. While these devices provide the convenience of faster and better access to people, information and services, there is also a flip side. They have a negative impact on available resources and our environment. With the threat of global warming looming large, prudent use of these devices becomes urgent. Awareness of the impact of usage patterns and ways to minimize the impact is the first step towards a more sustainable practice. In this chapter we explore the impact of these devices on the environment at every stage of its existence. The chapter focuses primarily on hardware devices. We examine the process of manufacturing in an attempt to identify best practices. Further, we explore the resource usage pattern in bringing the product to market. We also look at the usage patterns and adoption of environmentally friendly practices. We are not attempting to answer all questions in this regard, but rather suggest possibilities and more importantly, make the reader sensitive to the issues.
