Black Gold Stranglehold: The Myth of Scarcity and the Politics of Oil

Black Gold Stranglehold: The Myth of Scarcity and the Politics of Oil Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Experts estimate that Americans consume more than 25 percent of the world's oil but have control over less than 3 percent of its proven oil supply. This unbalanced pattern of consumption makes it possible for foreign governments, corrupt political leaders, terrorist organizations and oil conglomerates to hold the economy and the citizens of the United States in a virtual stranglehold. There is no greater proof of this than the direct relationship between skyrocketing gas prices and the explosion of wealth among those who control the world's supply of oil.

In Black Gold Stranglehold, Jerome R. Corsi and Craig Smith expose the fraudulent science that has made America so vulnerable: the belief that oil is a fossil fuel and that it is a finite resource.

Synopsis:

Experts estimate Americans consume more than 25 percent of the world's oil but have control over less than 3 percent of its supply. The authors explore the international and domestic politics of oil production and consumption, including the manipulation of world economies and the wealth of oil conglomerates.
