Book Description

Sept. 29 2006
The perfect storm is approaching for energy in North America.

World peak oil production has arrived. North American peak natural gas production is knocking on the door. The electrical generation and transmission system is suffering from years of under-investment in the wake of deregulation, corporate mergers, market gaming and cost cutting to boost short-term share values. Demand continues to rise. Analysts forecast dramatic increases in energy prices for the next decade and more.

The Emperor's New Hydrogen Economy shows in detail why the much-heralded Hydrogen Economy won't work as advertised, and even if it could, it won't be ready in time to help most of us.

You can improve your situation as the North American energy crunch unfolds. You can keep your quality of life, and not revert to the Dark Ages as oil supplies diminish. Understand why you need your own personal energy plan, so you can maintain your lifestyle, improve the environment and save money doing it. Learn how from an author who shares his personal experiences and sees light at the end of the path ahead, not blackouts.

This book is hard to categorize due to its subject matter, but it seems it's equally relevant to those interested in the environment, politics, business and the economy... or those who just want to find out more about an important issue that will become more and more urgent as time goes by. I didn't already know a lot on this topic, but I could still understand it, probably because of the clear way the author explained his points. I was pleasantly surprised by the section on personal energy plans; it gave me some ideas I hadn't thought of to not only save engergy and resources, but to save money as well (and feel good doing it, I expect). Would recommend the book for either enlightenment or research (the author cites many other sources, directing the reader to a wealth of other info on the topic, so might be good for students/profs).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good summary of the hollow promise of H2. April 27 2008
By David J. Hrivnak - Published on Amazon.com

A very complete and thoughtful analysis of the many problems and challenges in moving to a hydrogen economy and if we do; how it is likely to make things worse rather than better. The author then goes into a number of practical examples we can take now to reduce our reliance on oil and cut our emmissions.

The take away for me is that hydrogen is not fuel som much as a energy storage medium. There is no such thing as a hydrogen well. And while there is a lot of hydrogen locked up in water the hydrogen is not easy to access and will take a significant amount of energy to pull it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars An eye-opening expose. June 20 2008
By John F. Spradley - Published on Amazon.com
This book opens one's eyes to the sheer propaganda of the hydrogen-as-fuel
supporters. As a retired Physic Professor I've followed this story since
the 1950s. I'm reassured to know the real story is beginning to surface.
