Abstract

This book seeks to assemble the scattered knowledge available to date on the interactions between two complex world systems, i.e. the climate system and the energy system. The question is posed whether the large-scale deployment and use of fossil fuel, nuclear and solar energy could cause climatic changes. The intention is to provide an overview rather than to add new findings. In order to make the subject accessible to those who are not professional climatologists, one chapter is devoted to a description of the physical basis of the climate system and how the influence of human activities upon it can be assessed. The impact on climate of carbon dioxide and other by-products released by fossil fuel burning is considered, as are the effects of renewable energy systems.

This book will be of interest to climatologists, meteorologists, environmental scientists and energy systems analysts.
