Energy:
environment & health.


The burning of fossil fuels really got underway with the industrial revolution, and has continued at
an increasing pace to the present day. Carbon dioxide, released into the atmosphere by burning,
is a major greenhouse gas, and according to some studies, appears to be provoking climate
change on a massive scale. There will be changes in the atmosphere, the oceans and terrestrial
ecosystems that will profoundly affect the lives and health of ordinary people, the world economy,
and the well-being of the planet.
These far-reaching effects of past and future energy use will be discussed: the projected climate
changes and their consequences will be examined, including their effects on biodiversity,
individuals and humanity as a whole.

Energy:
ethics, politics and economics.


The energy challenge is now known to be related in a fundamental way the global environmental
challenge. Both have major ethical, political and economic implications.
For both, a key concept is sustainability, whose ramifications and implications are emerging from
research involving the physical and natural scientists on one hand and the social scientists on the other.
The sustainability of development is being put under serious pressure by the burgeoning economic
growth of the Asian economies and their billions of citizens. Strategies to address energy needs
and environmental problems must be practical enough to form a basis for stable international
agreements but cannot afford to neglect the ethical dimension, since decisions are being taken
that will have major impacts on future generations.
