"This important book shows how the use of fossil fuels is changing Earth's climate and what scientists are doing to find sustainable forms of energy that will secure our planet's future. We live in an energy-rich age that relies heavily on the burning offossil fuels. We burn fossil fuels to power our vehicles, factories, and even our power stations, which burn fossil fuels to create the electricity needed to light and heat our buildings. The result is a buildup of carbon dioxide into Earth's atmosphere.Find out how carbon dioxide overload is making our planet hotter and hotter and what is being done to fight global climate change."-- "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

ENERGY FROM NUCLEAR FISSION

Earth has a limited supply of fossil fuels, and in the near future this supply will come to an end. However, more people live on the planet than ever in its historyand they all need energy. One of the ways in which we can meet this increasing demand for energy is through nuclear power. Nuclear power stations do not drain our planet of its resources, and they can supply a seemingly limitless source of energy. Discover more about nuclear energy, how it is created and harnessed, and the controversies and challenges that surround it. From School Library Journal: Gr 5-8-Exploring natural and human-made energy sources, this comprehensive series examines the history, use, technology, and environmental issues associated with these resources, as well as alternatives and the outlook for the future. Enlightening without being preachy, the volumes emphasize the need for sustainable energy forms, incorporating balanced perspectives and up-to-date data to better inform readers on the advantages and disadvantages of each energy source. Sidebars such as "Rewind," "The Energy Future: You Choose," and "Fast Forward" offer in-depth analysis, specific historical examples, and ideas to stimulate critical thinking and discussion as well as current examples, facts, and statistics that enable students to come to their own conclusions. A simple hands-on activity at the end of the books helps readers understand the concepts in a more direct way. VERDICT A wealth of material makes this set a solid addition to science collections.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

"For centuries, falling water has been used in parts of the world to create energy to run grinding stones at mills and irrigation systems for crops. This interesting book shows how the use of this "clean" form of energy, called hydroelectricity, is beingexpanded to help us build a more sustainable future. Discover how other forms of water-based energy, such as energy from ocean waves and tides, are being harnessed and used to help create electricity to power our homes, offices, and factories."-- "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

In the search for oil and gas, we have drilled deep beneath the oceans surface and the ground, to tap into the energy wells trapped there. Today, we need more energy than ever before in our history, but the oil and gas fields may soon dry up. One option being considered is fracking. Rock is fractured underground in order to reach deposits. Discover how people use fracking to harness the before-unreachable supplies of gas and oil beneath Earths surface, the challenges of this form of mining, and the controversies surrounding it.

Human activity often leaves a trail of harmful carbon behind that directly impacts our planet. This informative book describes how every individual produces a carbon footprint by using energy made by burning fossil fuels and by creating waste from packaging that gets thrown away. Find out how to measure your own carbon footprint and see what effect you are having on Earth. Learn about new developments being made to reduce the amount of carbon we create and what steps you can take to make your own "footprint" smaller.

Readers bored with seeing the same information on renewable energy will love the focus on relevant contemporary examples in this book. How does solar power give energy to medical clinics in Ghana or cut fossil fuel use in Australia? Infographics make finding detailed information easy and interesting. From School Library Journal: Gr 3-6As the titles suggest, these four books emphasize ways we can conserve natural resources. Each entry boasts 13 chapters that contain clear color photographs and diagrams that succinctly compare and contrast information. The bright layout is busyborderline distractingbut consistent. The conversational tone, with multiple case-by-case comparisons, is engaging. Though the series is certainly not comprehensive, the global perspective and spotlights on multiple countries are noteworthy. While there is some repeated information from entry to entry, the series is a unified whole that should be purchased together. However, libraries should note that some of the information is from a few years ago (2015 or before). VERDICT Environmentally and globally conscious, this set would be a welcome addition to most collections.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
