Oil, water and chocolate mousse : En21-126/1994E

Chocolate mousse is a dessert to die for, but there is another kind of mousse that can kill. It is a reddish-brown, grease-like mixture of water and oil that persists for months or even years after oil spills. How do we prepare for and prevent oil spills? How do they happen? How is an oil spill cleaned up? This award-winning book helps young readers aged 12 to 15 understand, in a simple and readable way, the seriousness of environmental degradation.
