Energy Victory: Winning the War on Terror by Breaking Free of Oilby Robert Zubrin
Synopses & Reviews
In this compelling argument for a new direction in U.S. energy policy, a world-renowned engineer and the bestselling author of "The Case for Mars" lays out a bold plan for breaking the economic stranglehold that the OPEC oil cartel has on our country and the world.
Book News Annotation:
Congress must mandate that all new cars sold in the US be flex-fueled, and so capable of running on alcohol. Thus the oil cartel will wither away and be unable to fund terrorism, and we will win the war on terror, argues Zubrin, an aerospace engineer and author of popular science and science fiction. He includes special sections on how the Saudis control US policy, and how an alcohol economy would also defeat narco-terrorism at no extra cost to the consumer.
