Tiburon, CA (PressExposure) January 25, 2012 -- Known as The Green Machine, Lindsay Leveen has released his new ebook, "Hydrogen Hope or Hype, a Primer on Energy and Sustainability". Leveen has a knack to make complex science understandable to the layperson. The catalyst for writing this book is the need for the public and professionals to have a ready reference of the facts and science of hydrogen, greenhouse gases, petroleum fuels, and electric power, says Leveen. There is significant public debate about these subjects. There are numerous opinions on hydrogen as a future fuel. However, many of these opinions are supported by neither science nor fact.
This ebook provides the reader with a primer on hydrogen, energy, and sustainability. Hydrogen is simply not an inexhaustible and free energy source, as some would wish. However, it is a versatile chemical and energy carrier that will have growing application in the future of the energy and chemical industries. He has lectured at UC Berkeley, Stanford and many other leading universities on numerous occasions. He has worked with the think tanks in the Bay Area such as CIFE, SRI International and EPRI. Lindsay says he is fortunate to have studied chemical engineering and to have applied this wonderful profession to enterprises that exemplify what we can achieve.
In 2011, The Northern California Chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) gave Mr. Leveen their Professional Development award for his lifetime of work in the field of chemical engineering. His knowledge of energy systems is broad and began with his graduate work in Thermodynamics and the publication of his thesis on the direct integration of the Gibbs Duhem equation in the Oxford University Press. He continued to apply his education of chemical engineering and finance through many years of work. He was an expert witness in perhaps the largest insurance claim for property loss in a semiconductor fabrication facility. He has consulted and worked in the areas of energy deregulation, alternative energy generation, traditional energy generation, power transmission and distribution, power quality and reliability systems, and on hydrogen and sustainability
Lindsay received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and an MBA from University of Witwatersrand, S. Africa and a M.S. in Chemical Engineering from Iowa State. Leveen is also the creator of the blog: http://www.greenexplored.com. His book on the hope and hype of hydrogen is translated into Japanese and is used in Japan as a university text for students of energy policy and sustainability. Lindsay has given outside expert testimony to the US Senate on advanced batteries and fuel cells. He also has given keynote addresses at numerous conferences on sustainability.
"Hope or Hype, a Primer on Energy and Sustainability" is available in digital format on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0070YIZWY for a purchase price of $4.88.
