Book Description:
High gas prices aren't the end of the world but they may be the beginning of the end. This, at least, is the feeling of many who shudder at the staggering power oil rich countries have over the world's political affairs. In Petrotyranny, John Bacher uncovers the frightening facts of the world's oil industry. He reveals that the worst dictatorships control six times the reserves that are under democratic control, and explores the potential for global conflict that exists as the demand for energy increases and the oil supply decreases. What kind of power will these dictatorships possess in the future? How many wars will be fought over the ever shrinking supply of oil? Bacher takes an optimistic approach, viewing the problem as a challenge: the world's democracies need to devise a creative response to avoid the looming crisis. That is, start replacing fossil fuel burning with renewable energy and start the process now.
