Energy for the Future
Power stations burn coal to generate electricity. Airplanes, buses, and cars burn oil for fuel. People burn natural gas to heat their homes. Fossil fuels make our lives much easier, but they are also causing a major problem--global warming. Energy for the Future looks at some of the alternative sources of energy--everything from biofuels and hydrogen fuel cells to nuclear, solar, and wind power. This book also suggests some of the ways people can work together to tackle the global energy crisis and slow down global warming.
