From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-12-- These environmental problems are explained in depth, as are the attitudes and policies that have created them and the current approaches in dealing with them. The writing is clear and nontechnical. Large, comfortable print and photographs and diagrams on every page make the books attractive. ``Earth Experiences,'' which are intended as demonstrations, are less successful; in many cases the directions for assembly are confusing. Many in Disappearing Wetlands require access to such areas and may be unavailable to urban children. In one case, readers are cautioned about collecting endangered plants; in other instances, the warning does not appear. Despite its title, Fueling the Future is devoted largely to historical background and current uses. The advantages and disadvantages of various energy sources are treated objectively. Herda and Madden's Energy Resources (Watts, 1991) is equally up to date. --Meryl Silverstein, American Museum of Natural History, New York City
