Why We Hate the Oil Companies
Palgrave Macmillan, 2010
Why We Hate the Oil Companies skewers both ends of the energy political spectrum, from "drill, baby, drill!" conservatives to "no more carbon!" liberals. In frank commentary sprinkled with insider anecdotes, outspoken former energy executive John Hofmeister tackles the energy controversies head-on without regard for political correctness. His contentions may be outrageous (there is no shortage of energy; global warming is not the issue; government's handling of energy is dysfunctional), but the solution he lays out is a pragmatic plan to transition away from fossil fuels toward an affordable, sustainable energy future.
