Mr K. G. Brunskill (M)
I am surprised that the discussion contains no mention of Dr Paul Abeles who pioneered all the work on the inverted T-beam and whose beam and slab tests of the late 1940s and early 1950s were well recorded in The Structurul Engineer at the time.
Mr E C. Beale, from South Croydon, provides more background to the thinking behind his
contribution to our 16 February 1999 column:
Given that CO, emissions from humans are several times as great as the total from fossil fuels, it would seem that the minimum would be 3 times as great and that livestock emissions might be as great again. This does not take account of all the sources of CO, in the natural world, which might be as great as the previous total.
