I’ll agree with J Olson on one thing. This is not an unbiased book explaining both sides of an argument. It’s not intended to be. It’s intended to detail the many reasons we need to move to renewable fuels and encourage conservation of resources. The term petro-dictatorship is not a new term. It refers to dictators that are funded through our petroleum purchases. He argues that even if you don’t believe in global climate change there are plenty of other reasons, petro-dictators and their funding of terrorists being one of them, to move to a renewable energy system. He also argues that a true revolution is what is needed to get this done and we are nowhere near a real revolution. Right now we’re just doing tiny piecemeal upgrades. The first half of the book is dedicated to explaining the problem and the second half is dedicated to explaining how to solve it. I think it’s a great book but if you believe what he’s saying the scope of the problems can seem insurmountable and a bit depressing.
