Synopsis: Essays debate the pros and cons of alternative energy sources, including the use of nuclear power and the development of new technologies such as solar and wind power.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 9 Up—With an introduction reminding readers that Americans represent five percent of the world's population but consume 26 percent of its oil, this volume examines the possibilities of alternative energy sources. Each of the four chapters focuses on a question: "Are Alternative Energy Sources Necessary?"; "Is Nuclear Power a Viable Energy Alternative?"; "What Renewable Energy Sources Should Be Developed?"; and "Should Alternatives to Fossil Fuels Be Pursued?" The chapters begin with a preface, followed by five or six brief articles, the majority of which were published between 2004 and 2006, that argue for or against the question. Each article commences with a brief summary and information about the author. Highlights of the volume are the questions preceding the articles, which guide readers' analysis, and the periodical bibliography located at the end of each chapter. The "For Further Discussion" section includes questions that can be used for debates or as a springboard for further research. An annotated list of organizations and a bibliography of books conclude the volume. Sidebars, graphs, and illustrations are scattered throughout. A timely addition.—Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley College, Mt. Carmel, IL
