Product Synopsis

Is the Arab world an indispensable energy source without which our civilisation will come to a halt? Is this the cause of political and military meddling in the Arab world's affairs, and the reason given by democratic western leaders to defend supporting autocratic and authoritarian Arab governments to stay in power? Is the world really this vulnerable? Assessment of mankind's dependence on fossil fuels, particularly the position of the Arab world, is performed by analysing the three types (oil, natural gas, and coal), which are in essence convertible. Fossil fuels are tackled from two angles: clarifying the terminology used by the media, politicians, scientists, and so-called experts, when discussing fossil fuels; evaluating the hard facts and separate them from fiction by analysing the numbers and scrutinise them impartially to come with a definitive quantitative answer. Finally, a further investigation examines fossil fuels in relation to alternative energy, and from political perspective.

Customer Reviews

This book has changed my understanding of the oil industry, the politics that surrounds it and the way the media has deliberately misshaped public perceptions of the Arab world. Coming to the book as a complete novice in all things oil, other then what I see on T.V or read in the press, I was astounded by the authors revelation of the facts about the oil industry as opposed to the fiction so often presented by the media. I don't believe I wear rose tinted glasses when I view global politics, the environment, multi-national corporations or the search for solutions to pollution but this book has certainly cleared away the rubbish, deliberate or otherwise, that has skewed my understanding of what's going on and why. This book is a useful reference, enabling the reader to understand terms commonly used (and misused)in discussions or news stories around the oil industry. It is realistic, objective and optimistic about the future of the planet, energy options and politics. The author has provided a challenging read and raised some fascinating observations about the way oil information has traditionally been presented to us. I think this book is ground-breaking and throws down a gauntlet to the usual 'talking heads' to get their facts right. Information is power, so be informed.
