Here’s the gift of information for those interested in expanding their insight into and gaining a balanced perspective of our Nation’s energy issue. The following books are recommend:
“Gusher of Lies: The Dangerous Delusions of Energy Independence”, by Robert Bryce, ISBN 978-1-58648-321-0 and “Feeding the Fire”, by Mark E. Eberhart, ISBN 978-0-307-23744-6
Here’s another gift. Don’t buy them. Use your local library card and ask the librarian to bring them to you by “inter library loan”. It’ll cost you a modest postage fee.
Remember your high school physics? Hyperbole: You can’t burn ice cubes, they melt but they won’t ignite (at least not by match); it still takes many days to transit the Atlantic by sail alone; and carbon makes diamonds too!
