PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Sept. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Great Recession and The Great Contraction are just the beginning of global economic problems that will mark the end of the oil era. Coming soon, Energy Armageddon – Oil Starvation in the 21st Century, lays out our future.
Energy Armageddon discusses how the current recession and the debt crisis have delayed our response to the looming oil shortage that will impact the lives of not only every American, but every person on the planet. Written in clear and concise language, Energy Armageddon contains charts, graphs and illustrations that illuminate the dramatic changes ahead.
The release of Energy Armageddon is being timed to coincide 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 a 70% price increase in oil to western nations. Ending in March of 1974, the overall cost of the oil disruption to the US economy was estimated at $8 trillion in today's dollars. The next oil crisis will be a permanent worldwide shortage that will have a devastating effect on the economies of the world.
To be published in October by Four Palms Publishing, 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 this century – how will we survive without cheap, abundant oil?
Energy Armageddon is clearly the most important publication today about our economic future.
