Eyewitness Oil is a brand-new and up-to-date look at petroleum -- why we need it, where we get it, and how we use it. By tracing its roots from 6,500 years ago in the Middle East through the dawn of the Oil Age in 1853 and finally to present day, find out why oil truly is king. Stunning real-life photography of oil tankers, refineries, and spills lets you be an eyewitness to the substance long referred to as "black gold."
This book also includes a CD with additional clip art as well as a pull-out wall chart to take you deeper into the world of fossil fuels. See the inner workings of a car engine, find out how geologists locate underground oil deposits, and get an insider's look at the controversial substance responsible for the beginning -- and, if we're not careful, the end of life as we know it today!---from the publisher
