Richard Heinberg Launches Community Engagement Model of Publishing, Fights Big Oil

HELP US EXPOSE BIG OIL'S LIES & QUITE POSSIBLY SAVE THE WORLD.

The oil & gas industry is lying to you. And the consequences of these lies affect you and everyone you know. These consequences aren't esoteric, or limited to prices at the gas pump. They shape the very face of the planet and impact the quality of life of every living creature. Help us fight back against Big Oil's billion-dollar spin machine.
 
The Story
We’re being told that – thanks to technological advances like hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling – the US is undergoing an energy revolution, leading us in a few short years to become once again the world’s biggest oil producer and an exporter of natural gas. According to the Oil & Gas Industry and their proponents, “fracking” will provide the US with energy security, low energy prices for the foreseeable future, more than a million jobs, and economic growth. And they tell us that we can frack our way to independence without hurting the environment.
 
The Reality
Pardon our French, but this is complete bullshit. The energy abundance of the so-called "Shale Revolution" will be short-lived, while the environmental, economic and societal costs of this drilling frenzy will last for generations.
 
Help us expose these lies and turn the tide in the ultimate fight against greed by pre-ordering and participating in the writing and editing of Richard Heinberg's next book, SNAKE OIL! How Big Energy's Promise of Plenty Imperils Our Future.
