Any attempts to control the greenhouse effect will involve reducing carbon dioxide emissions and therefore requires energy efficiency. Victor Anderson analyses ways in which energy can be used more economically and discusses effective policies for promoting this. Specific case studies are used to illustrate previous attempts to introduce policies aimed at reducing consumption of energy and offers a practical and topical guide to tackling the effects of global warming in the future.
