Yale environmental journal translated into Chinese

November 12, 2004

The Journal of Industrial Ecology (JIE), an international peer-reviewed English-language quarterly, owned by Yale University and published by MIT Press, has recently translated summaries (abstracts) of all its articles into Chinese.

The translations were done as part of an ongoing effort to foster increased international dialogue. The translations are available at the Journal's website, http://mitpress.mit.edu/jie/translations.

"As China's role in the global environment grows, so too does the importance of high-quality scientific research and communication," said Reid Lifset, JIE editor in chief. As the sixth largest economy and most populous country in the world, China's development plays a crucial role in the future of the global environment.

"This project is especially timely because the Chinese government has announced the 'circular economy' (xun huan jing ji) as a centerpiece of Chinese environmental policy," said Lifset. "The circular economy and industrial ecology (chan ye sheng tai xue) strongly overlap. Both emphasize loop closing--recycling in the broadest sense--as a means of moving toward an environmentally sustainable economy."

JIE is the premier journal in the rapidly growing field of industrial ecology, which systematically examines local, regional and global uses and flows of materials and energy in products, processes, industrial sectors and economies. Industrial ecology focuses on the potential role of industry in reducing environmental burdens throughout the product life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials, to the production of goods, to the use of those goods and to the management of the resulting wastes. The Journal is a highly-regarded peer-reviewed quarterly, which has been praised for both its readability and timely relevance to key environmental issues. It is the official journal of the International Society for Industrial Ecology.

Industrial Ecology and the Automobile
by Thomas E. Graedel (Author), Braden R. Allenby (Author)

For courses in Industrial Ecology, or as a supplement in Mechanical Engineering courses on Internal Combustion Engines, or courses in Introduction to Engineering or Environmental Engineering.This new text uses the automobile, a major component of industrialized society, as a case study to examine the relationship between industry and environment. It examines the impacts of production and use, as well as the questions of designing with the environment in mind. Although the focus is on the automobile, the concepts, suggestions, and insights are appropriate to all technologies. View Details


Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things
by Michael Braungart (Author), William McDonough (Author)

A manifesto for a radically different philosophy and practice of manufacture and environmentalism

"Reduce, reuse, recycle" urge environmentalists; in other words, do more with less in order to minimize damage. But as this provocative, visionary book argues, this approach perpetuates a one-way, "cradle to grave" manufacturing model that dates to the Industrial Revolution and casts off as much as 90 percent of the materials it uses as waste, much of it toxic. Why not challenge the notion that human industry must inevitably damage the natural world?

In fact, why not take... View Details

The Unabomber Manifesto: Industrial Society and Its Future
by The Unabomber (Author)

In 1971 Dr. Theodore Kaczynski rejected modern society and moved to a primitive cabin in the woods of Montana. There, he began building bombs, which he sent to professors and executives to express his disdain for modern society, and to work on his magnum opus, Industrial Society and Its Future, forever known to the world as the Unabomber Manifesto. Responsible for three deaths and more than twenty casualties over two decades, he was finally identifed and apprehended when his brother recognized his writing style while reading the 'Unabomber Manifesto.' The piece, written under the pseudonym FC... View Details


Design for the Real World: Human Ecology and Social Change
