9780974340401: The End of Fossil Energy: And a Plan for Sustainability

We are offering the second printing and updated version of this imortant book, which was primarily written to educate the American public about the imminent decline and eventual depletion of fossil energy (oil, natural gas, and coal). This decline of energy not only underlies contemporary world problems, but it is also the most serious and urgent challenge ever to face the survival of modern civilization. "The End of Fossil Energy" (2'nd printing) reviews and supercedes many other energy related books that have recently been published, but unlike the others, it offers realistic solutions, numbers, and timing necessary for our sustainability and survival. The general subject and understanding of energy is of utmost importance. This book should be a must-read for every American citizen as it exudes passion for change and leadership. Time is of the essence, and time is running out.

About the Author:

John G. Howe is a retired engineer/farmer. He has been a long-time student of energy problems and is presently lecturing on this subject. Having become so concerned about the world's looming energy crisis, Howe felt compelled to summarize this complex subject into a book in order to reach a broader world audience. His New England Yankee-farmer background combined with his engineering education gives honest appraisals and solutions for a sustainable future.

Review:

Your splendid new book ... hits the nail on the head, and it is very clearly written. --Colin Campbell, founder of the Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas (www.peakoil.ie) and author of "The Essence of Oil and Gas Depletion."

Thanks for your excellent book ... I devoured it immediately and agree with all you wrote. --Richard Heinberg, renown lecturer and author of "The Party's Over" and "Powerdown."
