    Snake Oil eBook Ø Paperback snake free, Snake Oil PDFThis short book is thus an extremely important and very readable book for anti fracking activists While it concentrates on the US experience it is possible to utilise many of the facts and figures for to argue against fracking in the UK It also raises a number of other uestionsHeinberg argues strongly that we need a switch to renewable energy showing it is technologically possible Unfortunately as Heinberg knows governments around the world as less than enthusiastic for the transition While part of the problem is as Heinberg says that some have been seduced by the idea of large uantities of shale gas as a transition fuel to a low carbon future the biggest problem is a system that is structured around a fossil fuel economy and the interests of the oil companiesAs Heinberg saysthe US is failing to plan for a future in which hydrocarbons are scarce and expensive; failing to invest sufficiently in renewable sources of energy and in low energy infrastructure such as elec

    Snake Oil eBook Ø Paperback snake free, Snake Oil PDFI totally agree with Heinberg's core thesis that society must take decisive and deliberate steps to move away from a hydrocarbon based economy Yet there are many authors that state this case much better and don't resort to setting up straw men to try and make the case The economic arguments Heinberg uses do not work as they rely on poorly constructed assumptions that current well economics show are false His environmental claims primarily rest on what may happen or on the often misleading tactic of lumping any oil or gas well infraction with fracking

    Snake Oil eBook Ø Paperback snake free, Snake Oil PDFA useful source of information and stats regarding the false promise of the fracking miracle If you have a conversation with anyone unfamiliar with the concept of peak oil they almost surely will retort that fracking has solved the problem forever well no not even close Best to be armed with some stats and arguments before hand and this book provides that ammunition Not for the peak oil 'beginner' at all Read Party's Over Oil War and the Fate of Industrial Society for a proper introduction to the subject
