This book is based on nine seminars delivered during autumn quarter,and centered on the theme ''Energy and the Environment, a Risk-Benefit Approach.'' Risk-benefit analysis is defined in Dr. Starr's opening lecture on ''General Philosophy of Risk-Benefit Analysis.''.

This book emerges from the recognition that energy, environment and ecosystems are dynamically and inextricably connected. The energy environment system must be addressed in its totality, so that we can devise sustainable solutions that incorporate both economic growth and environmental conservation.

Energy and the Environment Cost- Benefit Analysis originates from a conference, the objective of which is to set a global standard to measure the cost and benefit of human’s production of energy. The book focuses on the analysis of the societal and ecological effects of such a production.

It also enumerates some existing sources of energy. Here is a comprehensive introductory discussion of Earth, energy, and the environment in an integrated manner that will lead to an appreciation of our complex planet.

The book looks at Earth from the perspective of a livable planet and elaborates on the surface and subsurface processes and the various energy cycles where energy is transformed and Author: Sandeep Narayan Kundu, Muhammad Nawaz.
