"By the late 1980s, the small former mining village of Quaking Houses in County Durham had passed through some hard times. The local pits had closed, the village had been starved of investment, and a huge opencast mine was eating away at the surrounding countryside. When a nearby road project disturbed an old spoil heap, severe pollution of the local stream, the Stanley Burn, by acidic toxic water from the heap proved the last straw for the people of the village." "They began to campaign vigorously for the stream to be cleaned up, and Quaking Houses describes how their determination led to the setting up of a unique collaborative project to design and develop a pioneering wetland area that would clean up the waters of the Stanley Burn - the first use of this form of passive technology in Europe." "Quaking Houses examines how the project developed and describes both the successes and the pitfalls of a collaborative project involving very different traditions and cultural backgrounds."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Comparable figures are provided for the first time on emissions of greenhouse gases from the Australian transport sector in 1900 and 2000. Greenhouse emissions from the transport sector increased ten-fold during the twentieth century, but Australia's population has increased five-fold, and reald GDP 23 times, while urban densities are now only about one third of those in 1900. Within the limits of long-term historical comparisons, it is concluded that use of the internal combustion engine itself has not contributed disproportionately to greenhouse emissions in the transport sector. However, electric vehicles would have been better.
