Reviews

"At its current five volumes...it is a reasonable investment for most school libraries and is highly recommended."--ARBA, January, 2011

— ARBA

"There are discussions of the political opposition and environmental impact of alternative energy, but the energy crisis is presented as global race with China for improved technologies to fuel the coming century. The series manages to present factual information - which can be at times lost in the miasma of ideological associations related to global warming and climate change discussions - in a well-documented and politically neutral format. Each chapter ends with notes on sources, and the conclusion summarizes the entire text succinctly. There is a five page glossary, list of resources for further resources in a variety of formats, and an extensive subject index. Recommended for school libraries. Wendy Stephens, January 2011
