Through a narrative-driven pro/con formatsupported by relevant facts, quotes, anecdotes, and full-color illustrationsthis title examines the future of solar power. Topics include: Is Solar Power Affordable? How Does Solar Power Impact the Environment? Can Solar Power Ever Replace Fossil Fuels? and Should Government Play a Role in Developing Solar Power?

From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up-Chapters debate the pros and cons of energy alternatives in terms of affordability, environmental impact, and potential to replace fossil fuels in these volumes. All but Hydropower devote a section to debating government support. Chapters that discuss whether or not alternative energy can replace fossil fuels seem forced. Proponents contend that the biofuels, solar power, etc., can contribute to energy supply while opponents claim that they are not "viable" replacements. Arguments against government support repeat the same basic statement: superiority of the free-market. Attractive charts and graphs and few photos accompany the texts. Suggested related organizations and websites run the gamut from the Cato Institute to Natural Resources Defense Council, setting up potential comparisons. Libraries with print or online access to the "Opposing Viewpoints" series (Greenhaven) or similar resources may pass on this set. Those with heavy demand for argumentative essays or options for research projects might want these point-counterpoint volumes.α(c) Copyright 2011.
