Energy and the Environment is conceived and written at a level suitable for use as an introductory undergraduate textbook in energy and environment for students with very little mathematics or science background. It can also be used by anyone interested in technical, political, environmental, and economical issues related to energy. To make the text appropriate for engineering and science students, additional topics are included within information boxes placed throughout the book, and in the appendices. Examples requiring algebra are indicated in a similar manner. Depending on the audience, instructors can decide to eliminate all or part of this material without loss of continuity. Each chapter in Energy and the Environment stands alone, and the text can be taught in any order that the instructor deems suitable. Widely different curricula can therefore be designed and tailored for any audience simply by focusing on the appropriate sections from the appropriate chapters. For example, an environmental engineering course might include the summaries of various energy sources types, with an emphasis on air pollution, radiation, and environmental economics. A science curriculum might alternately emphasize the various technological sections and incorporate some of the engineering designs. This book is now available and can be purchased at http://vervepublishers.com. You may also order a free examination copy if you are considering adopting the Energy and the Environment for your classes. I would be most pleased to receive comments and thank you for your time!
