School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up—These titles examine the history, current usage, and future prospects of energy sources. The first book focuses on petroleum, natural gas, and coal. The second discusses solar energy, wind energy, hydropower, geothermal energy, biofuels, nuclear energy, and fuel cells. International measurements are presented with the U.S. equivalents in parentheses. British spelling is seen in words like "centres," "metres," and "odour." The coverage is comprehensive. The densely written texts utilize scientific and technological language that can be difficult, and the lack of diagrams for how hydroelectric or nuclear power plants work is unfortunate. Nonetheless, these fact-packed volumes document the world's reliance on fossil fuels and explore the feasibility of alternate energy technologies
