"Our overwhelming societal dependence on oil is usually discussed in economic terms. This book looks at our Promethean petro-prowess through an ethical lens, and the result is both shocking and deeply enlightening. This is required reading for everyone who uses oil (do you know anyone who doesn't?)."--Richard Heinberg, Senior Fellow, Post Carbon Institute, and author of The End of Growth and The Party's Over.
