From Methane to Hydrogen—Making the Switch to a Cleaner Fuel Source The world’s overdependence on fossil fuels has created environmental problems, such as air pollution and global warming, as well as political and economic unrest. With water as its only by-product and its availability in all parts of the world, hydrogen promises to be the next great fuel source. All of the Key Aspects of Hydrogen Fuel Hydrogen Fuel: Production, Transport, and Storage describes various aspects of hydrogen fuel, including production from both renewable and nonrenewable sources, purification, storage, transport, safety, codes, and carbon dioxide sequestration. The book examines the unique properties and uses of the hydrogen molecule, its ability to be produced from numerous energy sources, and its separation and purification. It explains how to transport hydrogen using pipelines and tankers, and how to store it using compressed tanks, metal hydrides, carbon adsorbents, and chemical hydrides. The expert contributors also discuss codes and standards, monitoring techniques, and safety designs. The Path to a Cleaner World and Energy Independence Focusing on a clean, economical alternative to nonrenewable energy, this volume provides the latest information on the hydrogen fuel economy.

Since the mid-1990s, the emergence of hydrogen economy and the speed with which it will arrive have been vigorously debated. As a disruptive technology, dominant designs for the production, storage and distribution of hydrogen have not yet been established. Not have performance characteristics been achieved to compete with the existing combustion engine, though the efficiency and durability of hydrogen fuel cells are improving. This publication highlights the uncertainties involved in making choices about hydrogen and fuel cells in planning the development policies on national energy, environment and transport sector.

Skizzen der drohenden Barbarei

Wohin treiben die beständig nach rechts abdriftenden Gesellschaften in den Zentren des kapitalistischen Weltsystems? Mit jeder neuen Wahl scheint der Durchmarsch der Neuen Rechten unaufhaltsam voranzuschreiten. Die Verrohung des öffentlichen Diskurses, die zunehmende rechte Gewalt, die rasch voranschreitende Aushebelung bürgerlicher Grundrechte - sie lassen Erinnerungen an den Vorfaschismus der 30er Jahre aufkommen. Für Tomasz Konicz ist dies kein Zufall. In den hier versammelten Beiträgen werden Parallelen zwischen dem Aufstieg des Faschismus im Europa der Zwischenkriegszeit und dem gegenwärtigen Durchmarsch der Neuen Rechten gezogen. Zentral ist hierbei der ökonomische Krisenprozess, der in Wechselwirkung mit dem politischen Aufstieg der extremen Rechten steht: von der Weltwirtschaftskrise von 1929 bis zur gegenwärtigen, 2008 manifest gewordenen Systemkrise. Faschismus soll hierbei als eine Extremform von Krisenideologie demaskiert werden, die in Krisenzeiten mittels Gewalt und Terror eine im Zerfall begriffene kapitalistische Gesellschaftsformation aufrechtzuerhalten versucht – und diese in die Barbarei treibt. Die barbarische Gefahr komme hierbei aus der Mitte der Gesellschaft, weshalb den Begriffen des Extremismus der Mitte und der konformistischen Rebellion breiter Raum bei der Auseinandersetzung mit der Neuen Rechten eingeräumt wird. Der Prozess des Ins-Extrem-Treibens der Mitte wird nicht nur anhand der AfD nachgezeichnet, sondern auch beim neoliberalen "Mainstream", der als Brutstätte der Neuen Rechten fungiert. Tomasz Konicz, geb. 1973, arbeitet als Publizist und freier Journalist mit den Schwerpunktthemen Krisenanalyse und Ideologiekritik.

Gibt es ein Rezept für Verkaufserfolg? Die meisten Führungskräfte im Vertrieb verweisen hier zuerst auf eine gute Kundenbeziehung – und sie liegen falsch damit. Die besten Verkäufer versuchen nicht nur einfach eine gute Beziehung zu ihren Kunden aufzubauen – sie stellen primär die Denkweisen und Überzeugungen ihrer Kunden in Frage. Basierend auf einer umfassenden Studie mit mehreren tausend Vertriebsmitarbeitern in unterschiedlichen Branchen und Ländern, zeigt "The Challenger Sale", dass das klassische vertriebliche Vorgehen mit dem Aufbau von Beziehungen immer weniger funktioniert, je komplexer die Lösungen sind. Doch wie unterscheiden sich Fertigkeiten, Verhaltensweisen, Wissen und Einstellung der Spitzenverkäufer vom Durchschnitt? Die Studie zeigt deutlich, dass die Verhaltensweisen, die den Challenger so erfolgreich machen, replizierbar und strukturiert vermittelbar sind. Die Autoren erklären, wie fast jeder Verkäufer, ausgestattet mit den richtigen Werkzeugen, diesen Ansatz erfolgreich umsetzen kann und so höhere Kundenbindung und letztendlich mehr Wachstum generiert. Das Buch ist eine Quelle der Inspiration und hilft dem Leser, sein Profil als Vertriebler zu analysieren und gezielt zu verändern, um am Ende kreativer und besser zu sein.

Der stumme Frühling erschien erstmals 1962. Der Titel bezieht sich auf das eingangs erzählte Märchen von der blühenden Stadt, in der sich eine seltsame, schleichende Seuche ausbreitet … Das spannend geschriebene Sachbuch wirkte bei seinem Erscheinen wie ein Alarmsignal und avancierte rasch zur Bibel der damals entstehendenÖkologie-Bewegung. ZumerstenMal wurde hier in eindringlichem Appell die Fragwürdigkeit des chemischen Pflanzenschutzes dargelegt. An einer Fülle von Tatsachen machte Rachel Carson seine schädlichen Auswirkungen auf die Natur und die Menschen deutlich. Ihre Warnungen haben seither nichts von ihrer Aktualität verloren.
