Description de l'ouvrage

13 juin 2014
The rapid spread of hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") has temporarily boosted US natural gas and oil production... and sparked a massive environmental backlash in communities across the country. The fossil fuel industry is trying to sell fracking as the biggest energy development of the century, with slick promises of American energy independence and benefits to local economies. SNAKE OIL casts a critical eye on the oil-industry hype that has hijacked America's energy conversation. This is the first book to look at fracking from both economic and environmental perspectives, informed by the most thorough analysis of shale gas and oil drilling data ever undertaken. Is fracking the miracle cure-all to our energy ills, or a costly distraction from the necessary work of reducing our fossil fuel dependence?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fracking Nightmare 24 juillet 2013
Par W. R. Flynn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Snake Oil does it all. Point by point Snake Oil delivers a well-argued case exposing the environmental catastrophe brought about by natural gas fracking. It also brings to light the Big Lie that it will deliver long term energy independence and shares the little-known fact of the sharp declines in individual field production. This book furthermore explores why the government, media and industry have all lined up in support of this practice and have manufactured the myth of massive reserves. If you want to know the truth about hydrofracking, please read Snake Oil.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Each Of Us Can Choose 26 juillet 2013
Par Clinton Callahan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is not a hate book. Snake Oil is page after page of soothing clarity about what is going on in the world. The problem with becoming more aware is that each new disappointment hurts so deeply. I see again that I am being betrayed by the people I voted to office for making wise decisions to create a bright future for my grandchildren. My pain of facing the hyped-up fracking cure-all with clear eyes is decreased with the help of Richard Heinberg's calm and frankly sane analysis in Snake Oil. Each chapter paves the way for me to see through yet another layer of industry-sponsored governmental deception while keeping my center and therefore my ability to take actions that make a valuable difference. Other people's emotional and seemingly patriotic commitment to natural-gas-positive policy decisions fails to sway me. Thanks to this book I am no longer one of the sheep. I am making a list of who gets this book from me for Christmas so they can escape from being counted among the powerless sleeping.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Real Hope, Not False Promises 26 juillet 2013
Par Jed Diamond - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
We would all like to believe that the Ship of Industrial Civilization can go on as usual. If we run out of one form of energy, we'll just switch to another one. The age of oil has allowed for populations go grow and for all of us to live beyond our means. But as Richard Heinberg reminds us, "the party is lover."

"People don't seem to realize it that it is not like we're on the Titanic and we have to avoid the iceberg," says Rob Watson, CEO and Chief Scientist of The EcoTech International Group, who Pulitizer-Prize winning author Tom Friedman calls one of the best environmental minds in America. "We've already hit the iceberg. The water is rushing in down below. But some people just don't want to leave the dance floor; others don't want to give up on the buffet. But if we don't make the hard choices, nature will make them for us."

Richard Heinberg offers us real hope, not false promises. You won't need to "read it and weep." You'll read it and rejoice.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Right indeed! but wrong, unfortunately! 27 mars 2014
Par Jean Bernard Minster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Heinberg's book left me of two minds: He reviews the temporary nature of market benefits brought about by recent advances in fracking (a very old technology), and discusses the dark side of the industry very rationally. I think the time table he suggests for a painful outcome is probably close to being correct, certainly in the absence of well conceived and well structured national and international energy policies. The book represents the outcome of very considerable homework, which most readers could not do by themselves, and for that, I am very grateful. I was very disappointed, however, that he chose only to discuss hydro, solar, and wind as alternate sources of energies. I think he "drank the Kool-Aid" of the well-meaning but unrealistic (on that scale) "renewable energy" organizations. As a result, he basically ignores the only technology that has a remote chance of providing all of mankind with a reliable, safe source of energy with suitable energy return on energy invested for the next several centuries, namely 4th generation nuclear power, in the form of integral fast reactors (IFR). I have to assume that this is mainly due to ignorance on his part (or lack of time to do the necessary homework). As a result, his opinion is strongly colored by the experience with second generation reactors. The unfortunate consequence is that his reader is left with the sad conclusion that the only hope is to invest in inadequate technologies (or pray for a way to beat the second law of thermodynamics). This is unfair to the readers, since the answer does exist, and is affordable (see "Prescription for the Planet" by Tom Blees, and also [...] ).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fracking is fracked up. 1 août 2013
Par csommer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I've read a couple of Heiberg' works and they are always extremely well done, and this one is no exception. He is thoughtful, reasoned and most importantly, factual. He knows you can't just use myths or scare tactics. He does the research to get hard, factual data. If Heinberg says fracking is a cause for grave concern, you can believe there is good reason for it.
