Alternatives for Boost-Phase Missile Defense (A CBO Study) By Congressional Budget Office
Paperback: $17.95
Ships in 3-5 business days.
A prominent part of the Bush Administration’s strategy for national defense is developing and fielding defenses against ballistic missiles. To that end, the Department of Defense’s... More > Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is pursuing a layered defense composed of various systems capable of intercepting ballistic missiles at different points in their flight. For the past several years, work has primarily focused on intercepting long-range missiles during their midcourse phase (after their booster rockets have burned out but before their warheads have reentered the atmosphere). MDA plans to field initial elements of a midcourse system this year. Recently, the agency also began an effort to develop interceptors capable of hitting intercontinental ballistic missiles during their boost phase (the first few minutes after launch, before their booster rockets burn out).< Less
Methane Generation from Human, Animal, and Agricultural Wastes By National Academy of Sciences, National Research Council, International Development Commission
Paperback: $35.95
Ships in 3-5 business days.
This report is devoted to the development of an alternative energy re-source suitable for individual or village use in a rural environment. An ideal resource is one that is local in origin and can... More > produce energy useful for this purpose depending only on local materials and labor. Unlike present rural energy generation (primarily heat from burning), an ideal system should involve a fuel that can be utilized for different kinds of work. The ideal fuel resource should be easily accumulated and stored to provide energy for heating, lighting, small-scale electric power generation, and power for engines as needed. Moreover, where possible, it should also provide more energy than is now obtained from the same materials. Rural areas usually have large supplies of material—crop residues and animal wastes- theoretically suitable for conversion into a usable source of energy. The process that appears to hold the greatest immediate potential for utilization of these materials as sources of fuel is anaerobic fermentation.< Less
Megatrends for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy By Michael F. Hordeski
eBook (ePub): $99.99
Download immediately.
What are the major developments and trends which are emerging and evolving to set the course for meeting the growing energy needs of the modern world? This comprehensive book explores this... More > compelling and complex topic, examining the driving and often competing forces which come into play as we move forward. Currently 85% of the world's energy systems are powered by coal, oil and other fossil fuels. However, as growing concern for the climate crisis and carbon emissions move to the forefront, while simultaneously it becomes clear that the end of cheap oil is in sight, the need for increased emphasis on both energy efficiency and alternative sources of energy can no longer be ignored. The author provides an overview of the ongoing energy mix evolution, current technology and alternative fuel developments, sustainable building trends, evolving energy efficiency practices, and more.< Less

The specifications aren't precise and the whole thing appears doomed until he decides to just build it like it should be. When it turns out that a competing company may have been involved in bribery to get the contract, he redoubles his efforts. Story #2 sees Tom investigating an alternate to gasoline or diesel engines to power cars and trucks. With the planet's supply of petroleum running low, it is almost a matter of doing it now, or missing the opportunity entirely. His efforts are hampered by a small team of foreign spies out to get his experimental power system for use as a weapon< Less

A layman’s guide to U.S. energy independence providing the logic for why popular energy alternatives are a good or bad choice for the U.S., and how and why a hydrogen based fuel system would... More > work much better by using the latest nuclear power plant designs and electrolysis to separate the hydrogen and oxygen molecules in water. The nuclear power plants would be sited in clusters and assembly-line produced in the least populated areas of the country. The hydrogen would be pumped primarily in underground pipelines similar to those used now for natural gas. Internal combustion engine designs can be modified to run on hydrogen as they are to run on natural gas, but even better would be the use of hydrogen fuel cells driving electric cars. A rhetorical outline sequencing the major events of a national plan to shift America to a hydrogen economy is provided.< Less
