Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Improving Air Quality

By Larry E. Erickson and Gary Brase

Nominated by: Irma Britton, Senior Editor (Environmental Science and Engineering)

“During 17 years with Taylor & Francis, I have published many books on air quality. But the problems don’t seem to go away – they are still present and sometimes alarming.

“Air quality has a significant impact on our life, and one of the ways to improve it is by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. I recommend this short book because it answers the question, ‘How?’

“In the book, world experts in sustainability explain how to effectively address the transitions to electric vehicles, solar and wind energy, smart grids and electric power management, new and advanced batteries, and the electrification of agricultural technology – all topics related to better air quality.

“This is a book for everyone who wants to understand how humans impact air quality, how poor air quality affects us, and how to modify the decisions we make to reduce pollution and mitigate climate change.”
