Our world is in crisis--the burning of our dwindling supply of fossil fuels causes pollution, contributes to climate change, and makes energy prices skyrocket. This six-book series examines the current energy crisis, and explores how a combination of technologies can supply our energy-hungry society with the fuel it needs. Readers will come to undertand the advantages and disadvantages of key alternative energy sources, including nuclear, solar, wind, and waterpower. Readers will also learn about the promise of harnessing other renewable energy sources, such as hydrogen fuel cells, geothermal power, and biomass.
