High Noon for Natural Gas: The New Energy Crisis
September 25, 2004
Blackouts, rising gas prices, changes to the Clean Air Act, proposals to open wilderness to gas drilling and increasing dependence on natural gas for electricity generation. What do all these things have in common, and why should we care?
In this timely expose, author Julian Darley takes a hard-hitting look at natural gas as an energy source that rapidly went from nuisance to crutch. Darley outlines the implications of our increased dependence on natural gas and why it has the potential to cause serious environmental, political, and economic consequences. High Noon For Natural Gas is a critical analysis of government policy on energy, as well as a meticulously researched warning about our next potentially catastrophic energy crisis.
