The Hot Topics series adds depth to student analysis of the most current issues of the day. Each title provides thorough and balanced information on an important political, social, cultural, or moral topic. Visually appealing presentations and compelling examples provide context and inspire critical thought about issues that affect students, their peers, and their community.

This volume explores the issues of energy use, policy, and possible new sources. Chapters address the current status of the world's energy use and the role of governments in addressing energy concerns; the impact of voluntary conservation and the transition to energy efficient technology; the current use of alternative energy sources; and the future of energy from where we stand.

"This is a great book for students writing reports and for those who have an interest in the topic. Kafka does a fine job of presenting differing opinions and historical background..." School Library Journal, January 2007, on Cloning
