Reference Book on Geothermal Direct Use: Case Studies, Residential Geothermal Heat Pumps, Greenhouses, Gold Processing
Enormous potential exists in the United States for geothermal direct use and geothermal heat pumps to make a significant contribution to our national energy needs while offsetting the use of fossil fuels. Geothermal projects reduce gaseous emissions and acid rain from the combustion of fossil fuels that impact our environment. Geothermal direct use has practically zero emission of greenhouse-type gases and essentially no thermal pollution.Contents: 1.0 Introduction * 2.0 Geothermal Heat Pumps * 3.0 Geothermal Energy For Buildings (Other Than By Heat Pumps) * 4.0 Geothermal Energy For Industry * 5.0 Conclusions * 6.0 References.Case studies: Auburn, New York Schools Heating System; Commonwealth Building Portland, Oregon; Klamath Falls Geothermal District; Mason Greenhouses; Residential Geothermal Heat Pumps; Elko Heat Company; Enhanced Gold Processing; Flint Greenhouses; Hotel; MILGRO; Pacific Aquafarms; Rocky Mountain White Tilapia; San Bernardino Geothermal District Heating System.
Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Consumption: The Rebound Effect (Energy, Climate and the Environment)
This book challenges conventional wisdom by showing how, in some circumstances, improved energy efficiency may increase energy consumption. Relying upon energy efficiency to reduce carbon emissions could therefore be misguided. This book explores the broader implications for climate change and sustainable consumption.
The stage is Judevine, an imaginary town in northern Vermont. This is a small stage, sometimes cold and darkened, but filled with characters so finely etched that they stand out as clearly as steeples against the sky. David Budbill plunges into the soul of New England to find characters and stories with lessons for anyone wanting to find the intrinsic nature of the region that has been called "all of America's backyard." These dark, lyrical, funny narrative poems portray the hopes and joys, pains and despair of people who have been bypassed or bruised by the twentieth century. Budbill has written a song of the down-and-out or overlooked, a song of the unsung. This anthem of the rural renaissance is microcosmic in setting, but universal in scope.
