If the chemical elements permeate everything around us, why then are they not studied at school? From this reflection, the author raises the need to teach the language of the elements to promote a paradigm shift and address the problems arising from global warming.

In the continuation of Elements. The theft of the particles of life, Javier Peña brings to life new characters and recovers the world created in that first story to address the increasingly tangible threat of climate change with Elements. The Empire of Coltan 2. An allegory about today's society and how the most conscientious sector of the citizenry struggles to get the other side to participate, to become aware of the urgency of change and to mobilize.

With this objective, the book presents the 5 vowels of this new language that is the language of the elements: Carbo (C), Oxi (O), Hydra (H), Silana (Si) and Ferra (Fe). Meanwhile, the fictional plot advances in parallel: Tato has new plans for the planet Periodic Table and they are not good.
