Climatologist Gavin Cooke takes a comprehensive and detailed look at global warming and the 'Big Freeze' of 2010 to explain how Britain will freeze before it fries.Gavin Cooke takes a look at climate patterns, including the bad winters of years gone by, to predict what lies ahead for Britain as the warm weather of the Gulf Stream is bypassed by the weather fronts as they approach the UK from Siberia. There was no 'barbeque summer' in 2009 and no mild winter. The big freeze of 2009/10, the coldest in almost 50 years, is only the beginning. Predicting that from 2020 Britain will be hit by a mini ice age lasting 30 years or more, the nation will be left in a state of near anarchy if preparation is not taken today.

This book proposes a new model, the Lean and Green Business Model (L&GBM), where the environmental aspect of sustainability is integrated with Lean thinking in order to create a way of thinking that contributes to and balances the three sustainability dimensions of people, profit, and planet. The model presented uses a kaizen approach that will help readers improve mass and energy flows in manufacturing environments that already possess a deployment level in applying Lean. The Green Factory: Creating Lean and Sustainable Manufacturing tells the story of how GKN, a major British multinational corporation with operations in more than 30 countries, developed and implemented a Lean and Green Business Model in two of its automotive facilities in Brazil. It provides practical insight into how GKN was able to develop and deploy Lean and Green in a manner that resulted in environmental and cost benefits in the automotive facilities that operated in Brazil’s high-inflation environment. Detailing proven concepts and sustainable models derived from the first-hand experiences, the book supplies information against the backdrop of GKN’s automotive manufacturing environment. The authors take an inside-out approach, describing the real issues Environmental Health & Safety professionals face when implementing sustainable manufacturing policies. The book covers the corporate issues of balancing profit with environmental concern and the behavioral issues of engaging the workforce to identify and reduce environmental waste. All the concepts and models presented in the book have come about through the authors’ real life experiences in live kaizen events as well as their extensive academic research in the subject area.
