Summary
"It's time to learn about the role of carbon and fossil fuels on planet Earth! As much as our news is packed with articles about the importance of fossil fuels to the world economy and the global warming caused by increased carbon emissions, few people understand what is happening. Now Bang and Chisholm present a clear, concise explanation of the fossil-fuel energy cycle that began with the sun and now runs most of the manufacturing, transportation, and energy use in our world. Here is a stunning, simple book that will educate readers about how fossil fuels are really buried sunlight--energy caught from the sun by plants that were later trapped deep underground for millions of years. Now that this plant matter has been transformed into fuel, humans have been digging it up, changing the fragile dynamic that fulfills the global needs of all living things. In this fourth book of the award-winning "Sunlight Series," Bang and Chisholm share yet another example of the intricate connection between the sun and life itself. Using a narrative approach and gorgeous paintings, this very important story will engage readers and provide educators with a highly effective teaching tool. A wonderful addition to any library!"--
