With conservation a passionate issue for many teens, these up-to-date titles in the Diminishing Resources series will draw activists, but even readers who do not think they care that much will find the facts devastating, with quotes from authoritative sources—environmentalists, scientists, and survivors—about both the historic overview and the contemporary crisis, with full-color double-page photos that show what is happening now. Both history and contemporary politics play a big part in Oil, which discusses in detail the role of the Middle East, the effects of America’s addiction to cars, and always, the current focus on global warming. Will alternative fuels work? Besides recounting the devastation, each title includes urgent contemporary projects, global and local, that inspire hope. Researchers will welcome the clear, extensive back matter filled with time lines, detailed source notes, a bibliography, and Web sites. Grades 7-12. --Hazel Rochman
