Energy crisis expert Michael C. Ruppert says the sky is falling and makes a strong argument as to why you should heed his warnings. Ruppert marshals compelling facts about the imminent collapse of the oil fields, whose cheap energy has fueled developed society’s way of life for more than a century. He shows how the global financial system’s continual growth drove overconsumption destined to ruin any rational response to the energy crisis. He offers solutions using equal parts “relocalization,” population reduction, resource management and an overhaul of the American governmental system. Noting that the author’s political opinions are controversial, getAbstract recommends this book’s energy crisis information to local and federal government planners, finance professionals, anyone in the energy industry and policy makers looking to construct a societal paradigm for a new, frightening age.
In this summary, you will learn
- What the scope of the world energy crisis is,
- What the downsides are of alternative energy solutions,
- What the best finance and tax strategies are in an energy shortage.
