Overview

"Animals face extinction." "Energy crisis looms large."

"Hurricane devastates coastal communities." News stories such as these hit the headlines almost every day. Headline Issues is an exciting new series of books that addresses these concerns and many more, from conservation and climate change to pollution and poverty. Each volume also encourages readers to tackle the problems and help to change the planet.

Power stations burn coal to generate electricity. Airplanes, buses, and cars burn oil for fuel. People burn natural gas to heat their homes. Fossil fuels make our lives much easier, but they are also causing a major problem—global warming. Energy for the Future looks at some of the alternative sources of energy—everything from biofuels and hydrogen fuel cells to nuclear, solar, and wind power. This book also suggests some of the ways people can work together to tackle the global energy crisis and slow down global warming.
