Description


It took thousands of years for fossil fuels to form, but we may use them up within just a few centuries. Fortunately, there are other ways to generate energy using plentiful and renewable resources. Well-known science writers Alvin and Virginia Silverstein and Laura Silverstein Nunn explain the many forms of energy - including electrical, magnetic, light, heat, sound, and nuclear - and how they can be converted to other forms. The authors also reveal research on energy use in the future, showing how scientists are finding ways to conserve and generate energy using renewable resources - including solar power, wind power, waterpower, biomass, and geothermal energy - and how people around the world are going green.
