The Magic School Bus Takes a Wrong Turn

I was grateful to find this book! It's entertaining and forthright and provides kids with an intro into one of the gravest issues they will be inheriting. My one caveat is the listing of alternative energy sources to which the author includes nuclear energy. It is anything but a carbon-free, clean energy alternative. Maintaining nuclear power plants is highly carbon intensive from cradle to grave, and actually as there is no grave--it produces nuclear waste that lasts for thousands of generations--it creates the most toxic places on the planet--Fukushima, Hanford, Chernobyl and on and on. To read more about the inefficiency and challenges of nuclear power, go to any Physicians for Social Responsibility website. This is a huge oversight on the author's part, one which I hope she might correct if there are further editions of the book.
