The index is simply structured and user friendly, making concepts like global warming or storm surge easy to locate. Current references to hurricanes Katrina and Rita are included to illustrate the continuing impact of storms, our need to prepare, and our need to conserve and use resources wisely." —National Science Teacher's Association website, 12/06
