Tomorrow's energy : hydrogen, fuel cells, and the prospects for a cleaner planet / by Hoffmann, Peter,1935-; Dorgan, Byron L.,author of foreword.;
Includes bibliographical references (pages 311-330) and index.Why hydrogen? The grand picture -- Hydrogen's discovery: Phlogiston and inflammable air -- A history of hydrogen energy: The Reverend Cecil, Jules Verne, and the Redoubtable Mr. Erren -- Producing hydrogen from water, natural gas, and green plants -- Primary energy: Using solar and other power to make hydrogen -- Terra transport: Hydrogen for cars, buses, bikes, and boats -- Fuel cells: Mr. Grove's lovely technology -- Clean contrails: The Orient Express, Phantom Eye, and LAPCAT -- Hydrogen as utility gas: Hydricity, and the invisible flame -- Nonenergy uses of hydrogen: Metallic H₂, biodegradable plastics, and H₂ tofu -- Safety: The Hindenburg syndrome, or "Don't paint your dirigible with rocket fuel" -- The next fifty years.Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. An invisible, tasteless, colorless gas, it can be converted to nonpolluting, zero-emission, renewable energy. When burned in an internal combustion engine, hydrogen produces mostly harmless water vapor. It performs even better in fuel cells, which can be 2.5 times as efficient as internal-combustion engines. Zero-emission hydrogen does not contribute to CO₂-caused global warming. Abundant and renewable, it is unlikely to be subject to geopolitical pressures or scarcity concerns. In this new edition of his pioneering book Tomorrow's Energy, Peter Hoffmann makes the case for hydrogen as the cornerstone of a new energy economy. Hoffmann covers the major aspects of hydrogen production, storage, transportation, fuel use, and safety.

Painter -- Symbolic Racism.This new, two-volume set explores the ways in which civil rights have been given, cemented, overturned, or left unrecognized, from the first uprisings to present-day 2020. In 2014, as the nation celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the March on Washington, civil rights groups such as Black Lives Matter were organizing. Though our societal rhetoric has shifted, the struggle remains the same. In 362 alphabetically arranged essays, ranging in length from 200 to 2,700 words, Civil Rights Movements: Past & Present examines a wide range of civil rights issues in all their manifestations. This edition not only provides 64 new articles but also includes hundreds of updates to older articles that include new biographical resources. Not just focusing on the history of African American civil rights in the United States, this new edition has been expanded to include other civil rights movements -- the women's movement, the LGBT movement, the Chicano Movement, the American Indian Movement, and the disability rights movement -- while still maintaining a comprehensive overview of African American civil rights. The entries are arranged alphabetically and run from "Abolition" to "Zoning." -- Provided by publisher.The essays in Civil Rights Movements: Past & Present cover a wide variety of material. While some essays focus on individual organizations, movements, or people, other cover court cases or pieces of official legislation. Still, others cover broader, more conceptual topics. Back matter in Volume 2 contains a number of reference tools to help readers further explore civil rights history. An updated Bibliography, organized by category, directs readers to accessible sources for further study.
