Oxygen Transport Membranes: A material science and process engineering approach - Chen, W.
The general consensus exists that the earth is experiencing rapid climate changes, which may cause a redistribution of the global climates. Although it is unknown whether this is beneficial or disastrous for human beings, it will undoubtedly affect human civilization. For example, global warming may cause ice melting in Antarctica and Greenland, which leads to a rise of the sea level and eventually some low altitude cities and countries may disappear.
Although there is no universal agreement about the cause of global warming, many climate scientists assume that the anthropogenic emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere is one of...
