Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up—This book presents varying opinions concerning the movement. Proponents view green efforts as necessary to guarantee a sustainable future and advocate for current change in this direction. In fact, several top authorities believe that the green movement can create jobs in urban areas. Opponents view these opinions as merely hype and offer counter perspectives. Readers are given a balanced view of the subject through pro and con arguments presented in a question-and-response format. The book has four main chapters: "Is the Green Movement a Viable Reform Effort?" "Will the Green Movement Benefit the Economy?" "Is Going Green Worth the Extra Costs to Consumers?" and "What Is the Future for the Green Movement?" Each chapter has from two to eight subsections, with summaries provided in the table of contents. Each article is signed, and brief information about the author is given. Boxed key points appear on almost every page. A useful purchase for school and public libraries.—Caroline Geck, Newark Public Schools, NJ
