NetLibrary eBook of the Month

At present, there are roughly a billion motor vehicles in the world. Within twenty years, the number will double to 2 billion, largely a consequence of China’s and India’s explosive growth. Given that greenhouse gases are already creating havoc with our climate and that violent conflict in oil-rich nations is on the rise, does this mean that matters will only get worse? Or are there hopeful signs that effective, realistic solutions can be found?

In Two Billion Cars, transportation experts Daniel Sperling and Deborah Gordon provide a concise history of America’s love affair with cars and an overview of the global oil and auto industries. Two Billion Cars: Driving Toward Sustainability will be available to Connecticut State Library patrons March 1-31. If you already have a NetLibrary account established through the Connecticut State Library, visit www.netLibrary.org and log in. If you do not have a NetLibrary account, you can create one from any State Library computer.
