Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Over a Barrel: A Simple Guide to the Oil Shortage is a concise summary of the urgent oil shortage issue. It provides a balanced and factual picture of the medium-to-long range role of oil in supplying the world's energy needs, as well as an understanding of the many technical and social implications of the alternatives to oil. A foundation in understanding energy is provided by the early chapters on energy concepts, history, uses, and sources. Then, the focus shifts to understanding oil. Oil alternatives are reviewed with the alarming conclusion that we don't know which of them can overcome their many technical and social issues to fill some of the gap that will be created by declining oil production. The case for more and better organized research and development of alternatives to oil is made. The book explores life in a world with declining oil and no alternatives and suggestions to remedy the situation.
