By depoliticizing the energy-climate debate the authors succeed in exposing corrupt political thinking and 'green' myth-making about issues that affect every one of us. Today, energy is the most important commodity in the world. Yet our basic energy security is threatened by an ideological social agenda driven more by myth than reality. "Energy and Climate Wars" exposes the energy and climate myths that are driving today's public debate, from the West's war on carbon to the concept of peak oil and renewable energy. Using facts and empirical science, Peter Glover and Michael Economides show how most of the battle over energy and climate issues are the works of political and 'green' ideologues bent on social engineering programs. They present facts that are often obscured by media hype and speculative science to demolish popular myths, including the belief that energy politics are carried out in the best interest of all and that renewable energy can replace hydrocarbon economy. A thought-provoking, meticulously researched book, "Energy and Climate Wars" will help readers grasp the issues at stake and understand how energy and climate policy directly affect their lives with higher energy prices and security threats.
