PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The end of the Oil Era is upon us, and its impact will send shock waves through the world economies as they already teeter on the brink of financial disaster.

Energy Armageddon discusses how the current financial chaos in Europe and the American debt crisis have distracted the world and delayed a response to the looming oil shortages that lie ahead.

Written in clear and concise language, Energy Armageddon contains charts, graphs and illustrations providing a clear picture of the dramatic changes ahead. According to the author, "We can't see the forest for the trees.  Americans are not prepared for the daily impact that reduced oil supplies will have on their everyday lives. We ignore this situation at our own peril."

The release of  Energy Armageddon coincides with the anniversary of the Arab Oil Embargo of 1973, which began on October 18, 1973 when OPEC announced an oil embargo against the United States, and ended in March of 1974.  Industry sources estimated that the overall cost of the oil disruption to the US economy was estimated at $8 trillion in today's dollars. The coming oil shortage will be a permanent worldwide shortage, not a temporary one.

Booming economies were built on cheap energy, made possible by cheap, abundant oil. ENERGY ARMAGEDDON is the book that describes the interplay between the world economy, the oil industry, human nature and limited natural resources and poses the most important question of the 21st Century – how will we survive and prosper without cheap, abundant oil?
