About the Book

The situation is alarming and irrefutable: Within thirty years, even by conservative estimates, we will have burned our way through most of the oil that is readily available to us. Already, the costly side effects of dependence on fossil fuel are taking their toll. Even as oil-related conflict threatens entire nations, individual consumers are suffering from higher prices at the gas pump, rising health problems, and the grim prospect of long-term environmental damage.

In this frank and balanced investigation, Paul Roberts offers a timely wake-up call. Brisk, immediate, and accessible, this is essential reading for anyone who uses oil, which is to say every one of us.

Paul Roberts is a regular contributor to Harper's Magazine. A longtime observer of both business and environmental issues, he is an expert on the complex interplay of economics, technology, and the natural world.
