Green energy is often in the news. Scientists are constantly looking for new sources of power.

They will also explore the pros and cons of integrating the usage of renewable resources, as sources of energy, into our lives.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-3-Shocking in topic if not treatment, these serviceable introductions explain how electricity is generated, stored, and transported. Staid color photos of wires, circuit boards, and, occasionally, children using games or other electronic gear are combined with simply phrased but equally dry texts. "Power Fact!" text boxes (usually one per spread), reproductions, and diagrams are also included. The level of detail is high enough to contain, for instance, clear definitions of "anode," "cathode," and "electrolyte" in Battery, and (aside from a photo in the same volume that mislabels a rechargeable battery as an alkaline one), the information is accurately presented. Though there are no project ideas or research questions, the resources in each volume's back matter are audience appropriate. Future is a useful broad survey of alternate energy sources, and Pioneers offers a good historical overview of our evolving understanding of just what electricity is and does. α(c) Copyright 2011.
