Description - The Zero Carbon Car by Brian Long

The Zero Carbon Car examines the hundreds of ways in which car manufacturers are trying to reduce our carbon footprint, and the adaptation of the automotive industry to changing technology in a world where environmental issues are becoming ever more prevalent. The book's in-depth research into green car technology shows that manufacturers make concerted efforts, but sometimes also defeat the gains of their innovation. Topics covered include: What is meant by the terms 'global warming' and 'green', and how these can be defined An account of the long history of green automotive technology Alternative fuels, including diesel and hydrogen Developments in environmentally friendly engine technology Electric cars Environmental issues in material usage and car body manufacture AUTHOR: Brian Long is a professional writer, having written over forty motoring books, as well as Nikon-A Celebration. His twenties were spent using cameras as part of his job as a journalist and his enginering background slowly made him realise the technical innovations that went into each new model or lens. Slowly building up a collection of the finest Nikon and Canon cameras, he has learned to appreciate them first-hand by using them on a day-to-day basis. 350 colour photographs

Author Biography - Brian Long

Brian Long is a professional writer with more than sixty books to his name, almost exclusively dealing with motoring history. Brian is perhaps an unusual author for a title concerned with the automotive industry and environmental issues; he comes from an engineering background, has a love of motorsport and has owned several 'gas-guzzling' vehicles. In this book, he offers a refreshingly balanced perspective with a crucial underlying assumption - that cars are here to stay.
