Who Turned Out the Lights?: Your Guided Tour to the Energy Crisis (Paperback)
Who Turned Out the Lights? "is an entertaining and nonpartisan guide to the current U.S. energy crisis from Scott Bittle and Jean Johnson, coauthors of the breakout bestseller Where Does the Money Go? At once light-hearted and fun like Jon Stewart's America: The Book" and Stephen Colbert's I am America (and So Can You )" and deadly serious, Who Turned Out the Lights?" helps readers understand what's really at stake in the energy debate, an intelligent answer to the partisan Capital Hill squabbling between the Drill, Baby, Drill and Every Day is Earth Day lobbies.
“I would hope that government officials, politicians, and everyone that should be involved in the energy crisis- which means you and me-would read Who Turned Out the Lights? This book is factual but not boring. Its suggestions for energy consumption are meaningful.”
“In this clear, concise, and accessible book, Bittle and Johnson go beyond name calling and finger pointing and take a refreshing middle ground. It’s an invaluable read for anyone interested in our energy past, present, and future.”
-Ron Pernick and Clint Wilder, authors of The Clean Tech Revolution
“How far will we go to satisfy our oil addiction, and who will decide our energy future? If you want in on this discussion, then this book is for you. There are also real solutions available right now; all we have to do is listen, learn, and act.”
-Antonia Juhasz, author of The Tyranny of Oil: the World's Most Powerful Industry—And What We Must Do To Stop It.
