How Harmful Are Fossil Fuels?

Is burning coal still harmful today? What is fracking? What do we do when fossil fuels run out? This book looks at the potentially harmful implications on the state of our planet from the use of fossil fuels, discussing in depth the various techniques of fossil fuel extraction such as longwall mining for coal, the major effects of oil leaks and spills on the ocean and the reason for the heated debate about fracking. The book also looks at alternative energy sources such as biofuels, hydroelectric power and even a new type of rocket fuel.

Reviews

School Library Journal - John Peters, Children's Literature Consultant, New York City

"Frequent sidebars throughout offering closer examinations of particular issues, eyewitness or expert commentary, profiles of scientists, and “Hero or Villain?” counterpoints join well-chosen photos and other illustrations. Readers studying climate change, pollution, natural catastrophes and related subjects will find these studies low on definitive answers, but rich in points to ponder." - School Library Journal

School Library Connection - Rich Parker, Media Specialist, Fox Chapel Elementary School, Germantown, MD

"...well-captioned photographs and diagrams support the text, as do sidebars. Each volume concludes with interesting “Places to Visit” for those who wish to study further." - School Library Connection
