The boomerang paradox : how a nation's wealth is creating fuel poverty - and how to defuse the cycle /

by Simshauser, Paul | Nelson, Tim | Doan, Thao.

Publisher: North Sydney, N.S.W. AGL 2010Description: PDF.Other title: AGL Applied Economic & Policy Research working paper ; no. 17.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2010 Bibliography pp. 28-30Summary: A characteristic of advanced economies is continual growth in household income and plunging costs of electric appliances. In Australia, increases in household floor-space combined with power prices that are among the lowest in the world have resulted in rapid growth in peak demand. The power grid in turn requires substantial incremental generating and network capacity, which is utilized momentarily at best. As the cost of augmentation is gradually revealed, fuel poverty seems predictable. We call this the Boomerang Paradox; the nation's rising wealth has created the pre-conditions for fuel poverty. But appropriate and timely policy settings can defuse its effects.Availability: (1)

The economics of climate change mitigation : policies and options for global action beyond 2012 : executive summary /

Publisher: Paris, France OECD Publications 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Against the background of a projected doubling of world greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century, this book explores feasible ways to abate them at least cost. Through quantitative analysis, it addresses key climate policy issues: ; What would an ideal set of climate policy tools look like? ; How large are the economic and environmental costs of incomplete country or sector coverage of climate change mitigation policies? What are the pros and cons of policy tools to broaden that coverage, such as international sector-wide agreements or border-tax adjustments? What are the main challenges in incorporating a mechanism to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation? ; How can we concretely develop a global carbon market? ; What is the case for, and what can we reasonably expect from, R&D and technology support policies? ; How great are the incentives for major emitting countries to join a climate change mitigation agreement, in terms of the costs and benefits (including the co-benefits from reduced local air pollution and improved energy security) of action? How can they be enhanced? How can international transfers of resources and technologies broaden support for action?Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

by Gore, Al.

Publisher: New York, NY W.H.

From demographics to democracy, Gore explores what he calls the 'Drivers of Global Change', framing the international conversation about the future in fresh and provocative ways. With this new work, Gore hopes to help start a conversation about the large-scale drivers of change that are defining and shaping our future - from the rapid development and integration of radically new technologies to the planet-changing impact of the climate crisis, to poverty, globalization, and the democratisation of knowledge accompanying the emergence of a ubiquitous internet linking ever more intelligent devices.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The risk society : towards a new modernity /

by Beck, Ulrich.

Edition: Rev. ed.Publisher: London, U.K. Sage Publications 1992Description: 260 p.Notes: First published 1992. Reprinted 1993, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 (twice), 2007 (twice), 2008, 2009, 2013 Translated by Mark Ritter Includes bibliographical references and index. Replacement copy (07/01/14)Summary: Western industrial society is widely seen to be going through a decisive transitional period into a form defined variously as 'post-Enlightenment', 'post-Fordist' or 'postmodern'. Arguing that we are instead facing a different modernity typified by reflexivity, Ulrich Beck goes beyond these descriptions to provide a coherent picture of the direction of global social change. Underpinning the analysis is the notion of the `risk society'. The changing nature of society's relation to production and distribution is related to the environmental impact as a totalizing, globalizing economy based on scientific and technical knowledge becomes more central to social organisation and social conflictAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The senior cohousing handbook : a community approach to independent living /

by Durrett, Charles.

Edition: 2nd ed.Publisher: Gabriola Island, B.C. New Society Publishers 2009Description: xvii, 301 p. : col. ill. ; 23 cm.Notes: Includes index. Bibliography: p. 290-291Summary: Senior cohousing fills a niche for this demographic -- the healthy, educated and proactive adults who want to live in a social and environmentally vibrant community. These seniors are already wanting to ward off the aging process, so they are unlikely to want to live in assisted housing. Senior cohousing revolves around custom-built neighborhoods organized by the seniors themselves in order to fit in with their real needs, wants, and aspirations for health, longevity and quality of life. Senior Cohousing is a comprehensive guide to joining or creating a cohousing project, written by the U.S. leader in the field. The author deals with all the psychological and logistical aspects of senior cohousing, and addresses common concerns, fears, and misunderstandings. He emphasizes the many positive benefits of cohousing, including: better physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health; friendships and accessible social contact; safety and security; affordability and shared resources.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
