Trends in the declining supply of fossil fuels, growing demand for electricity, and the controversies over nuclear power and the impacts of energy use on the environment are making the understanding of energy an increasingly vital topic. This set provides an important multidisciplinary overview of the many related topics in language that will be accessible to a wide range of users. Articles explore everything from Albert Einstein, seismic energy, and acid rain, to lasers and building design. The Encyclopedia supports the curriculum in earth science, chemistry and life sciences, social studies, political science and more.
