Das "Ende der Schöpfung" beinhaltet eine umfassende, detaillierte und topaktuelle Dokumentation sämtlicher Klimafakten (Stand 2016), die den durch den Menschen verursachten Klimawandel zweifelsfrei beweisen. Zudem werden die vielfältigen Gefahren einer fortschreitenden Erderwärmung aufgezeigt bis hin zur Vernichtung der Schöpfung. Durch folgende Punkte zeichnet sich dieses Buch aus: a) Alle Klimafakten beruhen auf seriösen und international anerkannten Quellen der Klimawissenschaft. b) Große, übersichtliche Bilder und Graphiken dienen zur Veranschaulichung der Fakten, darunter 50 farbige Abbildungen. c) Eine klare, übersichtliche Gliederung des umfangreichen Stoffes sowie das Hervorheben wichtiger Absätze erleichtert das Lesen und die Orientierung. d) Das Buch ist ausschließlich auf wissenschaftlichen Fakten aufgebaut. Damit erhält der Leser ein einzigartiges "Klimalexikon", das ihn sachlich und fachlich über die topaktuelle Faktenlage des Klimawandels informiert. In Band 2 folgt dann unter dem Untertitel "Die Chancen" u.a. eine ausführliche Bestandsaufnahme der emissionsfreien Energiequellen. Dies umfasst sowohl den aktuellen Stand der Technik und Anwendung als auch die wirtschaftlichen und politischen Möglichkeiten, die Erderwärmung mit Hilfe dieser Technologien zu begrenzen. U.a. werde ich dort auf die große Chance der Menschheit eingehen, mit einer Kombination aus Zukunftsinvestitionen, Innovationen, technologischem Fortschritt, intelligenter Energieeffizienz, kluger Kooperation und sinnvoller Koordination, nur kleinen Einschränkungen des Komforts und der Lebensweise sowie einer zielgerichteten Gesetzgebung die globale Erderwärmung zu begrenzen.

Wer m?chte nicht wissen, was in unseren Lebensmitteln steckt und wie sie zu traditionellen oder neuen Produkten weiterverarbeitet werden? Viele Nahrungsmittel m?ssen, um genie?bar zu sein oder den sensorischen Anspr?chen von Konsumenten zu entsprechen, erst einmal verarbeitet werden. Dieses Buch erkl?rt sowohl die Rohwaren und deren Inhaltstoffe als auch die Prozesstechnik, die ben?tigt wird, um daraus qualitativ hochwertige Produkte herzustellen. Dabei werden auch die Aspekte gesunde Ern?hrung und Novel Food ber?cksichtigt. Auf Basis des Kapitels "Lebensmitteltechnologie" in der Neuauflage des erfolgreichen Winnacker-K?chler, Band 8 (Ern?hrung, Gesundheit, Konsumg?ter), 2004 wurde dieses Buch durch Erweiterung um einen zweiten Teil, der produkt?bergreifenden Lebensmittelverfahrenstechnik, erstellt. Es setzt Grundkenntnisse in der Chemie und Verfahrenstechnik voraus und umfasst die Lebensmittelkunde und -verfahrenstechnik, wie sie als Vorlesung f?r Ingenieure, Wirtschaftsingenieure und Lebensmittelchemiker als Haupt- oder Nebenfach angeboten wird.

Environmental Valuation in South Asia

This book is about understanding the value of environmental services in South Asia. It provides an overview of different environmental problems in South Asia and examines how economic valuation techniques can be used to assess these problems. It brings together multiple case studies on valuation undertaken by economists and environmental scientists from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Nepal and Sri Lanka under the aegis of the South Asian Network for Development and Environmental Economics (SANDEE). The book addresses the challenges of valuing environmental changes that are unique to developing countries. Each chapter starts with a description of an environmental problem and the valuation strategy used, followed by a discussion of estimation methods and results. It is designed to serve as a reference book for students, teachers, researchers, non-government organizations and practitioners of environmental valuation. Those interested in development and environmental economics, and natural resource management policies, will also find it useful.

Why Red Doesn't Sound Like a Bell

Understanding the Feel of Consciousness

The book starts by analyzing the problem of how we can see so well despite what, to an engineer, might seem like horrendous defects of our eyes. An explanation is provided by a new way of thinking about seeing, the "sensorimotor" approach. In the second part of the book the sensorimotor approach is extended to all sensory experience. It is used to elucidate an outstanding mystery of consciousness, namely why, unlike today's robots, humans actually can feel things. The approach makes predictions and opens research avenues, among them the phenomena of change blindness, sensory substitution, and "looked but failed to see", as well as results on color naming and color perception and the localisation of touch on the body.

Based on best practices prescribed in The Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, Essentials of Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy, 3rd Edition provides comprehensive coverage of anatomy and physiology, assessment, and aspects of the cardiopulmonary systems, with a focus on their interaction. The disablement model is used in describing the eight cardiopulmonary practice patterns. Expert author Ellen Hillegass also discusses pathophysiology, pharmacology, and interventions in the outpatient setting. Incorporating Guide language, her practical approach progresses logically from basic sciences through intervention, and emphasizes lifespan considerations. Material follows The Guide to Physical Therapist Practice 2nd Edition, reflecting best practices as defined by the American Physical Therapy Association. Evidence-based content is based on the latest research in the field. Case studies show the application of concepts with real-world examples. Pharmacology chapters reflect both the rehabilitation background of physical therapists and the pharmaceutical expertise of a pharmacist. A focus on wellness follows the disablement model. Information on geriatric and pediatric cardiopulmonary physical therapy is easy to apply to patient situations. Testing for both cardiac and pulmonary dysfunction is conveniently located in a single chapter. Cardiovascular medication information covers the latest drugs used in cardiopulmonary physical therapy. Information on thoracic organ transplantation simplifies and explains these complex procedures. NEW chapters cover the lymphatic system and pediatrics. Revised chapters on cardiopulmonary anatomy and physiology differentiate between information that is need to know and that is nice to know. An Evolve companion website includes medical animations to illustrate concepts, along with a glossary, glossary exercises, and reference lists from the book linked to MEDLINE abstracts.

Toxic Archipelago

A History of Industrial Disease in Japan

Every person on the planet is entangled in a web of ecological relationships that link farms and factories with human consumers. Our lives depend on these relationships -- and are imperiled by them as well. Nowhere is this truer than on the Japanese archipelago. During the nineteenth century, Japan saw the rise of Homo sapiens industrialis, a new breed of human transformed by an engineered, industrialized, and poisonous environment. Toxins moved freely from mines, factory sites, and rice paddies into human bodies. Toxic Archipelago explores how toxic pollution works its way into porous human bodies and brings unimaginable pain to some of them. Brett Walker examines startling case studies of industrial toxins that know no boundaries: deaths from insecticide contaminations; poisonings from copper, zinc, and lead mining; congenital deformities from methylmercury factory effluents; and lung diseases from sulfur dioxide and asbestos. This powerful, probing book demonstrates how the Japanese archipelago has become industrialized over the last two hundred years -- and how people and the environment have suffered as a consequence.

This book details key trends involving the recent formation of scores of companies that build and launch small satellites or provide key components for small satellite constellations. The applications and usage are quite diverse and include student experiments, serious scientific experimentation, and totally new types of commercial constellations, particularly in telecommunications and remote sensing. The explosive growth in the design, manufacturing, and launch of small satellites is one of the most dynamic aspects in the area of space exploration and exploitation today. New commercial space companies such as Planet Labs, Sky Box, OneWeb, and LeoSat are now building and launching thousands of small satellites and cubesats into orbit. Small companies and big aerospace companies alike are getting into this exciting and interesting new business. This is a practical guide that provides advice to students, researchers, LEO satellite companies, and regulators wrestling with some of the new challenges that small satellites present as more and more companies and countries around the world enter the new small satellite arena.
