Editorial Reviews

VOYA, October 2014 (Vol. 37, No. 4) - Rachel Wadham
This stand-alone The Future of Renewable Energy series addresses the application of renewable energy in the United States. Each volume offers a basic overview of the issue and then addresses both the pro and con side of four significant questions. What Is The Future Of Fossil Fuels? focuses on the affordability, compatibility, environmental impact, and the government’s role in the current state and future use of all types of fossil fuels, paying particular attention to the issue of oil production and hydraulic fracturing (or fracking), both currently hot topics. While not entirely unique in their format or in the issues they address, the volumes in this series are informative and offer a balanced view of both sides of the controversy. Well written and understandable, the authors use a wide variety of source material to present each side fairly and completely. The question/answer format of the chapters breaks the topics into simplified arguments that can easily be absorbed. The author’s style is rather dispassionate which elevates the quality of the works by allowing reader to come to their own conclusions. Each volume includes several charts that further expand on issues addressed; however, the volumes are text-heavy so visually inclined readers will most likely need pushing to engage with this series. Teachers and librarians will find these to be valuable added resources for research and persuasive writing support. (The Future of Renewable Energy) Reviewer: Rachel Wadham; Ages 11 to 15.
