Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
YA-Focusing on the use of alternative sources of power and the development of energy-saving projects, this wonderful resource is for those interested in developing a community project to protect and clean up the environment. The optimistic text motivates readers to get involved. Boxed inserts highlight the accomplishments of specific community activists. The glossary and thorough appendixes provide important information ranging from definitions to explanations of concepts and technologies discussed in the text, to information that can be used to develop and support an energy-conservation project. The black-and-white photographs and clear, simple, line-drawing diagrams throughout the book clarify the concepts under discussion. A great resource for research on policy, for explanations of how energy technologies work, and for practical applications for science learned in the classroom.-Donna West, W.T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA
