Meet the Renewables
Power Our World!
SHORT-LISTED 2009 Wilderness Society Environment Award for Children's Literature
Who are the Renewables?
They've always been around - this book explores how the old fossils took over their turf, and explores questions like 'what happens as fossil fuels are burnt?'. (You add members of the Greenhouse Gas Gang to the atmosphere).
The complex science of energy is simplified in Caren Trafford's latest book, so that everyone can better understand the mechanisms at play. Coal, gas and oil, as well as wind, sun, water, biomass and geothermal all get to present their case, with facts and solutions packaged in Caren's unique blend of text, illustration and humour.
The book, while designed for students who are asking the difficult questions, provides easily accessible knowledge for parents and teachers alike.
230 x 280 mm, 32 pages, paperback, full colour.
