From the Back Cover

Newt Gingrich Presents a Bold Plan for America's Energy Independence:

Do It All. Do It Now. Do It for America.

America is unrivaled in our ability to solve tough problems and create bold, powerful solutions. That's exactly what we need to do with the energy crisis we now face. We CAN become energy independent, while lowering prices at the pump today and developing innovative and effective energy alternatives for the future. We CAN produce an overwhelming supply of oil and natural gas here at home, and break the stranglehold that foreign (often hostile) countries have on our energy supply, and by extension, our economy. And we CAN be responsible stewards of our environment, protecting the grand beauty and richness of our country without sacrificing our robust engines of growth, expansion, and entrepreneurship. As Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House and bestselling author, spells out in stunning simplicity, when it comes to developing domestic energy resources, we CAN do it all. Isn't it time we relied on American energy for America's security and prosperity? With your help, your citizen action, and Newt Gingrich's plan as laid out in this handbook, we can solve this energy crisis--and slash gas prices, too.

Newt has the right idea and good insight. This is a little outdated with major finds happening in the past few years.

The US should be using every available resource for gathering all the energy we can from our own resources instead of spending our dollars to people who hate and undermine the US.

The green movement as always is too far ahead of itself promoting pipe dreams and "ideas". We will not see anything green for decades.

BTW this book will be updated with new information in the coming weeks.

First, I'm an independent. I do have 3 decades experiences as a federal worker working government programs with exposure to our elected officials. I'm familiar with the capabilities and limitations on both sides of the aisle. This includes energy. Mr. Gingrich...tho well meaning shows a lack of understanding of the complexity of the issue.

He does provide an adequate overview though slanted toward his political view. The strength of his case is the increasing daily power of special interests...does he acknowledge those he follows and in his party?

Two points illustrate his limitations. First, he never addresses that 35% of oil is used for crucial non-transportation aspects. These range from agriculture to plastics plus hundreds of more vital applications. He could include financial models showing the gravity of the consequences of losing this capability to better make his point of why we need to drill. Second, he should research EROEI...or energy return on energy energy invested...it frames how and why we can and should change based on scientific...managerial efficiency and effectiveness. It also will reveal the flaws on his too optimistic view of additional oil...buttressed by actual data (i.e. depletion rates, on line rates, etc.).

Yes...we are going to have an energy revolution...but it will be painful and take decades. His almost blind adherence to his sources without auditing and questioning them is a key example of why our government is broke IMO. His recommendations...though some noteworthy...are mainly 1 dimensional to a 3 dimensional problem.

The serious reader should explore other books on Amazon that more completely describe this issue to understand the importance, difficulty and gravity of this situation.

Format: Paperback
Newt's ignorance of oil geology is evident from the title. There is a reason oil companies are called E&Ps with the exploration part first. You don't take a $400,000/day drill ship out to sea and start poking random holes in the ocean floor. We have little knowledge of the structures off the east and west coasts or in the Beaufort and Chuckchi Seas. We have better data in the Gulf, but the good new stuff is under allochthonous salt at great depth, not economic at current prices. The Green River oil shale is a 35 year joke. For one thing it isn't oil.
The U.S. has about 3% of the world's oil reserves despite nonsense from Gingrich and his ilk.

I sure did. In 2008, I payed 20 dollars to fill up my entire tank with gas. I am paying 50-60 dollars now, but of course one week before the election I can exclaim, "I ONLY PAID 48 DOLLARS TO FILL UP MY TANK!" Wow, has gas gone down miraculously at the last minute.

In 2008, I paid 20 dollars to fill up my dead empty gas tank with gas. TWENTY DOLLARS!!!!!!!!!

Once, I realized that Newt Gingrich was a guy with an incredibly knowledgeable noggin, and that the books he wrote were incredibly substantive, much more so than most of the blarney I heard and believed in Massachusetts, I visited his web sites, read his books, would go to see him speak in person at publicized events in and around his home state of Georgia.

TWENTY DOLLARS!!!!!!! DRILL BABY DRILL. DRILL HERE DRILL NOW PAY LESS.

The reason that gas was so cheap, (and you can keep on saying rotten, stinking things about the Speaker), BUT the real reason gas was so cheap in 2008 was because there was a Drill here, drill now, pay less initiative with many persons, myself included, signing petitions to Congress, asking, urging, pleading, kicking screaming, marching, to lower gas prices.

TWENTY DOLLARS! I paid $1.15/gallon for gas in December of 2008. I will never forget that day.

Thank you Mr. Speaker for all that you do. This book contains a lot of information about current scientific techniques for energy production. And for that reason is an excellent resource to educate oneself on energy production possibilities.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is not classic Newt where the subject would have been well researched and make for interesting reading. Instead it is clouded with political overtones of attacking the opposite side and prevents reaching an objective of solving environmental concerns and energy independence with a unified front. Shame on you, Newt for creating such a bomb. It's just tired rhetoric done hurriedly and soooo repetitive. Ho, Hum!

Newt Gingrich is not a geologist. He really has no idea what he is talking about. The USA hit peak oil back in 1970. For 40 years now, oil production in the USA has been in decline. It didn't matter whether a Democrat or a Republican was in the white house or ruled Congress . . . oil production has been in decline since we have been drilling up the country for over 100 years now. Now recently there has been an uptick in production . . . why? Because oil prices moved from $20/barrel in 2000 to near $100/barrel now. That has made many previously uneconomic oil plays now economic. But there are not tons of them. And you can go ahead and drill them like crazy but they won't cause oil prices to drop . . . because if oil prices do start to drop, they'll stop drilling because they'll be losing money. Again, the only reason production has gone up lately is BECAUSE the price is high.

The USA only has about 2 or 3% of the worlds remaining oil reserves. (Go look it up.) Ask Legendary oilman and hardcore conservative T.Boone Pickens, he'll tell you "There is no way we can drill our way out of this problem."

This book is nothing but telling people what they want to hear. You should demand to be told the truth . . . not just lies that a politician knows you want to believe. If you want to know the real situation, I'd recommend digging up the lecture from Ken Verosub, Geology professor at UC Davis where he discusses Newt's crazy views on oil geology.
