Editorial Reviews

These two excellent Understanding Global Issues series entries, Earth's Changing Climate and Renewable Energy Resources, join other books on Antarctica, gridlock, and healthy cities in this ongoing series. Earth's Changing Climate presents a balanced examination of the concerns and debate surrounding global warming. The facts and the arguments are provided in nonbiased language that allows readers to draw their own conclusions. If there is one flaw in the presentation of information, it might be that quotes taken out of context can present a distorted picture; however, that occurrence is rare in the text. Renewable Energy Resources examines different energy sources, how they are used currently, and what the projected use will be. It covers wind, water, and solar energy, and spends a marginal amount of time on bio-energy or biomass. It also strives to present a balanced view, although it is less balanced than the first title. The layout and presentation of each book is particularly well done. The titles use color photographs and charts throughout to highlight each concept. There are sidebars with pertinent information such as key concepts, models of equipment, and definitions of programs that are referred to within the main text. Each title also includes sections on careers in the energy industry, a time line of events, biographies, a concept web, a quiz, and a list of resources for further reading. Overall these titles are excellent additions to middle school collections. VOYA CODES: 4Q 2P M J (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses; For the YA with a special interest in the subject; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined asgrades 7 to 9). 2004, Smart Apple Media, 56p.; Glossary. Index. Photos. Maps. Charts. Further Reading., PLB. Ages 11 to 15.

Did you know that a mathematician living in eighteenth-century France first used the analogy of a greenhouse to explain why Earth was warmer than Mars? Or that climate has a huge impact upon human history? These facts represent just a bit of the wealth of information in this book. Written with a definite environmental slant, this volume, part of the "Understanding Global Issues" series, takes on weather and climate, changes in the Earth's climate over the ages and the much-debated issue of global warming, which is far from an established fact among the world's scientists. Text is well written and presented, including colorful photo illustrations, graphs, charts, a quiz, computer and literature resources plus glossary words in bold print. Even more intriguing are the boxed asides, such as the biography of the above Frenchman and careers such as climatologist and meteorologist. The writers also point out how historical events like the Industrial Revolution and politics are bound to affect climate. 2004, Weigl Publishers/Smart Apple Media, Ages 14 to adult.

Gr 5-7-Antarctica provides a brief history and information about this vast continent's climate, ecology, and scientific research. In addition, there is material on related careers and people, and the harmful impact of tourists. The page about Ann Bancroft, one of the first women to cross the region "on foot," refers readers to a Web site for her motivational programs. Good discussions of the ozone layer and the Antarctic Treaty, and useful maps lend this book to research. The second volume presents an overview of global warming, greenhouse effects, and complications involving the Kyoto Protocol. Both books include mainly color photographs, and there is some duplication between them. These survey titles are acceptable for reports.-Eva Elisabeth VonAncken, Trinity-Pawling School, Pawling, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
