"We live in an energy-rich age, in which we can turn on a light with the flick of a switch or drive anywhere by turning a key. But, our vehicles, factories, and power stations, which create the electricity needed to light and heat our buildings, pump carbon dioxide into Earth's atmosphere. Carbon dioxide overload from these human activities is making our planet hotter and hotter--and is causing the Earth's climate to change. Find out what scientists are doing to find sustainable new forms of energy that will secure our planet's future."-- From School Library Journal: Gr 5-8-Exploring natural and human-made energy sources, this comprehensive series examines the history, use, technology, and environmental issues associated with these resources, as well as alternatives and the outlook for the future. Enlightening without being preachy, the volumes emphasize the need for sustainable energy forms, incorporating balanced perspectives and up-to-date data to better inform readers on the advantages and disadvantages of each energy source. Sidebars such as "Rewind," "The Energy Future: You Choose," and "Fast Forward" offer in-depth analysis, specific historical examples, and ideas to stimulate critical thinking and discussion as well as current examples, facts, and statistics that enable students to come to their own conclusions. A simple hands-on activity at the end of the books helps readers understand the concepts in a more direct way.

The endless and enormous power of the sun provides life to all organisms on Earth, from the smallest plant to the largest animal. This awesome power is being used today to provide a rich and abundant source of energy in many parts of the world, to operate machinery and heat and light buildings. Discover how the sun is powering our planet, the technology used to harness it, and what the future of solar power could be. From School Library Journal: Gr 5-8-Exploring natural and human-made energy sources, this comprehensive series examines the history, use, technology, and environmental issues associated with these resources, as well as alternatives and the outlook for the future.

What can modern forensic tools teach us about existing and newly uncovered artifacts from ancient Chinese dynasties? How can we learn about human migration from the discovery of preserved bodies? Can todays technology uncover new clues about the Great Wall of China? Dive into this intriguing title, which examines how forensic science has allowed scientists, archaeologists, and historians to solve mysteries and answer questions about ancient China. From School Library Journal: Gr 2-5-Integrating science and history, this series uses archaeology as a means to explore the past. Highlighting techniques such as carbon dating, computer 3-D modeling, and soil sampling, each title describes how these methods are used to find and analyze evidence, answering questions about the various cultures and giving historians more information than they would gather from visual observations. Bright colors, plenty of sidebars, and spotlight features make these titles easy to navigate and highly attractive. The usual suspects of ancient cultures are featured. VERDICT Exploring familiar territory with a twist, these titles are good for schools looking to beef up their STEM work with students. α(c) Copyright 2011.

Huge, far-reaching landscapes of swaying grass or shrubs, grasslands support a whole host of organisms and are one of the most important biomes for people, too. Peel back the corners of the grassland to find out how many different organisms rely upon this ecosystem for survival, from elephants and gazelles to prairie dogs and horses. Discover how each organism functions within its grassland ecosystem, and learn about the daily fight for survival that takes place in these huge hunting grounds. Explore grasslands all over the world and find out what you can do to help protect these rich and varied landscapes. From School Library Journal: Gr 4-6-Informative and picturesque, this comprehensive series takes readers on a tour of Earth's six major biomes, exploring their distinctive characteristics as well as the unique creatures who have made each habitat their home. Key words are highlighted via bold font and are defined in the extensive glossary while sidebars, including "Eco Up Close," which focuses on one particular inhabitant per location, provides students with a greater understanding of each environment's interdependent relationship between living and nonliving organisms. Activities and activism also play a part in the volumes, as students are encouraged to consider how ecosystems work, how they can be affected by change, and what they can do to protect these fragile systems. The lush photos of locations worldwide may inspire further investigation of the topic. Great selections.α(c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Earth's survivors cling to life on an unforgiving, distant planet, next to the sun! Three generations after the crash of the colony ship Icarus, Iapyx is barely hanging on: one of thirteen cities suspended halfway down deep chasms. The sun on the diamond lands above will kill a man in less than five minutes. The ticktock monsters in the fog forest below are a little slower - but quite a bit smarter. An electromagnetic wash has disabled the computers, the radios, even the lightbulbs. It's the steam and clockwork age reborn: a careful society, rationed and stratified. Which suits Simon Daud just fine. Simon likes the rules, and knows his place - in the shadow of his older brother, Isaac. All he wants is to earn his wings as an ornithopter pilot and get to work in the flight bays. But on his final test flight, something goes wrong. Isaac is killed. Simon is burned; his body will never be the same. Neither will his world. Not everything in Iapyx is quite as it seems, and through his rehabilitation Simon falls into the middle of a conspiracy that will bring everything he's ever known to the ground. Down in the fog forest, monsters await - but so does the truth . . . if Simon can survive long enough to find it.

In this amazing title, readers will explore the possibilities new developments in technology are opening up for making maps. Mapmakers are using satellite data to map the locations of people and objects on Earth, making video maps using the Internet to show wind and weather systems, and creating specialized maps that show human behavior. Computer game technology, such as Minecraft, is even being used to map real places. "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
