Disappearing Safe Environment

September 4 2006, 7:54 AM 

The opening of this book reinforces what Al Gore (and many other people)has been trying to tell the American public - we must find a way to decrease global warming and find other fuel alternatives.
Why can't our government get that message?

About Time

September 4 2006, 1:36 PM 

Back in the 1960's when I was in college, my generation warned about dependence on oil and other natural fuel sources that could be exhausted. It has been disappointing to see that this generation, who should have done and be doing something about this problem, has accomplished little or nothing.

What timing for this book with the new find in the Gulf of Mexico. Living near there, I guess I am not looking forward to the "fallout." Global warming is such an issue-one that was ignored for so long.

scary

One reason our Gov`t can`t get the message is that so many of them are in the oil business and have made large fortunes. They probably don`t believe the science either, any more than they believe in global warming. And they love to use the looming depletion of oil as an excuse to drill in the ANWAR, as if that were going to save the world!

Has anyone thought of sending a copy of this book to Pres. Bush and copies to others of the "oil crowd" that are currently in gov`t "service"???????????????? Although I am not certain that they can all read!

We are doomed

September 8 2006, 11:49 AM 

I agree with the author. There isn't any energy source other than solar that will come without a dire consequence. we will either figure out a way to sustain our civilization on solar alone or accept our doomed fate. Why can't intelligent human beings advance our civilization by living peacefully with the nature in stead of incessively taking from the nature.

Re Out of Gas

I'd rate this as good and informative, but still introductory primer to the subject--or perhaps just what that wait-till-the-last-minute middle schooler is looking for in a less-meaty report source--when compared to such titles as Paul Roberts "End of Oil," published in 2004. Both are wake-up calls for America; but are we listening even now...
