You might kw the price of Oil ... but do you understand the COST? America has a big problem: A money problem, wrapped up in an energy problem, which contributes to an environmental problem we can't afford to fix ... because we have a money problem. In this fascinating and informative work, retired energy industry leader Robert Harston talks about America's Energy: where it comes from, where it goes, and how much that costs all of us each day. Seeking to introduce reasonableness into the energy debate, Harston takes on such controversial issues as the ecomy, the environment, America's ongoing lack of a coherent energy policy, and our National Security. Along the way, Harston dispels some of the more outlandish claims (from all sides) about what Americans can, and should, do about this very real problem that affects us all.
