The "Sustainable World series tackles environmental issues that affect our world in clear, accessible ways, so that young readers are introduced to difficult concepts with relative case. Each title in this series covers the particulars of a problem--the origins of the problem, factors that compound it--and then moves forward to highlight programs and movements that are being explored and implemented worldwide to combat the issues. These books are progressive and earth-conscious, offering a wide array of possible ways young readers can get involved in their community and work toward environmental awareness, education, and action. Full-color photographs, glossaries, bibliographies, and numerous website listings enhance each volume. This title explores the differences between nonrenewable and sustainable energy sources. It provides clear connections between energy consumption and global warming, pollution, high gas prices, taxes, and human health. Global in scope, small in scale, it offers students the tools to explore how they can be a part of the efforts toward more efficient energy alternatives.
