Energy and Society: Time, Space and Spirit--Keys to Scientific Literacy Series.
Humans have a large advantage over other life forms on earth in that they have been able to use their superior hand and brain power to invent ways to harness energy resources. The discussion in this booklet considers time, space, and spirit. Time refers to a sense of history; space refers to geography; and spirit refers to life and thought. Several chapters on the history and concepts of the ways humans use energy, a time line related to the concepts, a map of the important geography related to these concepts, a glossary of important terms, and a list of several study suggestions are included.
