With an examination of fossil fuels as energy sources and the world population's reliance on them, Fossil Fuels and Pollution outlines the connection between fossil fuels and global warming. This new full-color book explores the properties of greenhouse gases, the nature and causes of their emissions, the largest contributors, and important health issues and considerations associated with them. The concepts of energy efficiency and fuel economy are also examined as well as agricultural greenhouse gases and pollution. Fossil Fuels and Pollution ends with a close look at fuel technology and the "green technology" movement that has been put into place for tomorrow's cars.
