U.S. Energy Policies (Routledge Revivals)
U.S. Energy Policies, first published in 1968, aims to assemble and describe within an overall framework the energy policy questions that RRF believed would profit from study and analysis. This study covers the past performance and trends in the energy industries, the nature of existing industries and of the government policies bearing on them, and the effects of those policies. This title also takes note of the prospective influence of economic and technological developments and evaluates the probable effects of selected alternatives to existing policies. This book will be of interest to students of environmental studies.

U.S. Energy Sector Vulnerabilities to Climate Change and Extreme Weather: Increasing Temperatures, Storms, Flooding, and Sea Level Rise, Effects on Power Plants
At least three major climate trends are relevant to the energy sector: increasing air and water temperatures, decreasing water availability in some regions and seasons, and increasing intensity and frequency of storm events, flooding, and sea level rise. This report — part of the Administration's efforts to support national climate change adaptation planning through the Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force and Strategic Sustainability Planning process established under Executive Order 13514 and to advance the U.S. Department of Energy's goal of promoting energy security — examines current and potential future impacts of these climate trends on the U.S. energy ...

U.S. Household Consumption, Income, and Demographic Changes
The impacts of the two variables of population and income growth on resources and the environment are transmitted through their effects on the demands for goods and services. To enrich our understanding of the impacts of population and income on consumer demand, Philip Musgrove, with the assistance of Adele Shapanka, undertook the research in this volume, which was first published in 1982. This book will be of interest to students of economics and environmental studies.

U.S. Human Spaceflight
This official NASA history document - converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction - provides a detailed record of American manned space flights from the inception of Mercury in 1961. The introduction states:<br /><br />More than 45 years after the Mercury astronauts made their first brief forays into the new ocean of space, Earth orbit has become a busy arena of human activity. In that time, more than 300 people have traveled into orbit on U.S. spacecraft. The first astronauts went along stuffed into capsules barely large enough for their bodies, eating squeeze-tube food and peering out at Earth through tiny portholes. Their flights lasted only a matter...

U.S.-Canadian Agricultural Trade Challenges
The Free Trade Agreement between the United States and Canada was established in 1988 despite the U.S.’s controversial proposal to eliminate trade-distorting government subsidies to agriculture. Originally published in 1988, this volume brings together a collection of essays which identify and debate the difficulties associated with agricultural trade between the U.S. and Canada and explore common interests in the resolution of global agricultural issues. This title is a valuable resource for students interested in environmental studies and international agricultural relations.

U.S.-Japanese Agricultural Trade Relations
First published in 1982, the editors and authors of this book examine the United States’ 1973 embargo on the export of soybeans and its effects on U.S.-Japanese relations. Although eventually shipment of soybeans to Japan resumed, the embargo temporarily soured the friendly relations of the two democracies. This book, prepared by a group of Japanese and U.S. scholars, demonstrates how trade relations between the two countries are affected by their internal political situations and by the nature of their respective agricultural industries. <i>U.S.-Japanese Agricultural Trade Relations </i>will be valuable to scholars, policy makers, and others interested in agricultural tr...

UFO
<b>UFO. I dossier italiani</b><br /> <b></b><br /> <b>«Auguro di non vedere mai simili oggetti da una distanza ravvicinata, com’è accaduto a me, per quel senso di impotenza e paura che essi incutono.»</b><br /><br /> UFO nei cieli delle regioni italiane, da nord a sud, quasi ogni mese, da anni. Li hanno visti tutti: uomini e donne, ragazzi e pensionati, piloti di aerei di linea e top gun, poliziotti e militari, perfino preti. Un fenomeno esteso, ma che è ancora in gran parte sconosciuto. Le centinaia di segnalazioni «qualificate» raccolte nei decenni dall’Aeronautica Militare sono infatti rimaste chiuse nell’unico archivio ufficiale sugli X-file italiani, quello che catal...

UFO: The Making of a Myth?
Ever since a UFO allegedly crashed in Roswell, New Mexico, people have believed it was an extraterrestrial craft. Individuals and organizations since then have tried to prove argue that a UFO did crash at Roswell and it was extraterrestrial in origin. However, what no individual or organization has done since the Roswell Incident to prove their conviction that an extraterrestrial craft crashed at Roswell, is use science. Some claim to use the scientific method to show that UFOs are extraterrestrial in origin, yet haven't actually used it. A huge school of faith has grown over the past fifty years that simply wants and expects everyone else to believe what they say is true...

Ultimate Thought
There is a physics of life by which David Bohm&#39;s enfolded &#34;orders&#34; unfold upward and downward causality chains. Life physics pursuits turned out to be ultimate causation, superdomains that stem in sui-genesis from a T-boundary (which a Working Model predicts exist outside 4-spacetime), and the accessing of a supercontinuous plenum by a geometry of interconnectivity through discernible rules for space/time ratios. This is a physics of life that operationalizes Bohm&#39;s enfolded orders of the implicate. Extension neurosensing done by 7 researchers connected with information of such &#34;size&#34; and &#34;density&#34; that constituted veritable cumuli. Fr...
