School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up

This handy text reviews careers in solar, wind, geothermal, and hydroelectric energy, hydrogen energy and fuel cells, and nuclear energy as well as employment in green building, management, and transportation. The underlying theme-knowledge is power-aids in the common organization of each chapter, which begins with a brief factual introduction and explains career opportunities, salaries, and required education. A brief bibliography follows each chapter. A broad appendix includes a list of 50 schools where students can study for careers in renewable energy and Web sites for job listings, workshops, and professional organizations, as well as contact information for state energy offices. Illustrations and informative sidebars are scattered throughout. Edifying and accessible, this volume will be a welcome addition for career centers and environmental collections.-Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley College, Mt. Carmel, IL
