NetLibrary eBook of the Month: Two Billion Cars: Driving Toward Sustainability

Posted on: Feb 27, 2009 @ 5:19:27 pm

Two Billion Cars: Driving Toward Sustainability by Daniel Sperling and Deborah Gordon; Foreword by Arnold Schwarzenegger Oxford University Press, 2009

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. 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. They zero in on reforming our gas-guzzling culture, expanding the search for low-carbon fuels, environment-friendly innovations in transportation planning, and more.

UCF Libraries owns Two Billion Cars in print, at HE5611.S67 2009.

The March eBook of the Month is provided with free unlimited access March 1-31 through the generous support of Oxford University Press. To read, click on NetLibrary on the UCF Libraries list of databases at
