Fission, Fusion and the Energy Crisis, Second Edition focuses on the importance of the breeder reactor to the efficient use of nuclear fuel reserves. This book examines the interrelationships of the scientific, technological, economic, and ecological aspects of nuclear power and considers the debate on the possible danger of a ""plutonium economy."" This monograph is comprised of 12 chapters and opens with a discussion on the energy requirements and available fuel supplies on a global scale, with emphasis on capital fuel reserves and renewable energy sources. An overview of the atom and its nucleus, mass, and energy is then presented. The following chapters explore the process of nuclear fission and how it can be used to produce a hydrogen bomb; natural uranium reactors and enriched reactors; the control and safety of nuclear reactors; and the short- and long-term economics of nuclear power stations. The nuclear power programs of some countries such as Canada, Britain, and the United States are also considered. Finally, the nuclear fusion process and attempts to control it for use in the production of heat and electricity are analyzed. This text is intended for nuclear scientists and undergraduate students.

Energy in an Age of Limited Availability and Delimited Applicability focuses on the energy crisis that threatens national safety, economy, and way of living. This book emphasizes that the energy problem is the result of a long chain of misguided policies leading to wasteful use of oil and gas and reliance on cheap foreign oil rather than developing domestic supplies. The topics discussed include the world-wide pervasiveness of the energy problem; energy self-sufficiency versus energy independence; social-economic foundation of growth in energy use; and ingredients of a balanced and rational energy economy. The sources of energy; launching and implementing project independence; keystone in the arch of project independence; and research and its place in project independence are also deliberated. This text likewise covers the costs and financing for resolving energy crisis, elaborating the proposed figures on the 39,000 mw of fossil fuel capacity. This publication is intended for energy conservationists, but is also beneficial to students and individuals concerned with energy problems.

Solar Energy is a collection of lecture from the 17th International Science School for High School Students. The book presents nine papers that tackle concerns in solar energy. The text first covers the world energy resource and consumption, and then proceeds to tackling energy conversion, the atmospheric environment, and climatic change. In the third chapter, the book details the nature of solar energy and optical magnification of solar radiation. Chapter IV deals with the biological conversion of solar energy, while Chapter V talks about batteries. Next, the selection covers thermal conversion, solar devices, and direct solar production of electricity. The eighth chapter discusses selective surfaces, and the last chapter details heat transfer and storage. The book will be of great interest to anyone concerned with the development of alternative energy technology, particularly solar energy.
