Biomass: Fueling Change

Biomass, Generating Wind Power, Harnessing Power from the Sun "These titles begin with a definition of energy, describe its different forms and sources, and explain the problems with many of those sources. The author develops the focus of each book by discussing the specific energy source in terms of the technologies of harnessing it, its historical uses, its applications, and its limitations and problems....Overall, these volumes are good sources of information for researchers. As a set they provide a rounded picture of alternative sources of energy." —School Library Journal, 07/07 "The colorful books are well designed in short chapters with tips and fact boxes...The books are bright and very attractive. Students will like the large, colored two-page spreads that feature photographs and fact boxes...Recommended." —LMC Magazine, 10/07
