Energy: Sources, Utilization, Legislation, Sustainability, Illinois as Model State

January 05, 2016

On the eve of the much anticipated Paris Climate Conference 2015 (COP21), the premier book on Energy: Sources, Utilization, Legislation, Sustainability, Illinois as Model State was published.

The 800-page work presents various kinds of energy sources: ways to convert energy for end use; better use of energy towards conservation; energy and environmental sustainability; and legislative ways to combat climate change, which is the major consequences of high carbon economies. As a very proper model-state, the State of Illinois was chosen since it has the largest overall fossil energy reserves, including the largest strippable bituminous coal reserves; the largest user of nuclear energy in the USA and investing in all kinds of renewable energies including wind energy, solar energy, biofuels, geothermal energy and various energy storage options.

Energy was written to educate its readers about all aspects of energy - including energy sources, energy utilization, and legislation related to better use and the move towards renewable energy and sustainability. This book, serves as an educational guide to students of energy, as well as a road map for energy planners and policy makers, energy-related engineers and scientists, and citizens and community leaders, who are concerned about energy in general. In short, this book is the guideline and recipe to success for a world with zero emissions of greenhouse gases; one free of global warming.

This book retails for US$178 / £117 (hardback) on Amazon (, and select bookstores elsewhere. To know more about the book visit

#537 Science Journalism, Hold the Hype
Everyone's seen a piece of science getting over-exaggerated in the media. Most people would be quick to blame journalists and big media for getting in wrong. In many cases, you'd be right. But there's other sources of hype in science journalism. and one of them can be found in the humble, and little-known press release. We're talking with Chris Chambers about doing science about science journalism, and where the hype creeps in.
