Join Fuel Freedom, industry experts and members of your community in a webinar discussion of “Petropoly:The Collapse of America’s Energy Paradigm” with authors Gal Luft and Anne Korin, on April 8 at 7 pm EDT.
The “Fueling the Future” book club and webinar series is part of a national effort to inform the public of the key issues surrounding America’s oil dependency and to motivate public participation and discussion. The book club program will feature relevant, timely and thought-provoking book selections throughout the year. We have established a book club forum that provides members the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded individuals, initiate discussions with members of their community and pose questions to leading industry experts.
Following the book reading and forum discussion, participants are invited to attend a webinar featuring the book’s authors. In addition to the book club webinars, Fuel Freedom will host a variety of other webinars with industry professionals, energy experts and political leaders to discuss the feasibility of flex-fuel vehicles, the cost-benefit of alternative fuels and the positive macro-economic impact of oil independence.
“We are storming into the national energy debate as American family budgets are being clobbered, yet again, by the high cost of oil. In an effort to influence and alter the national dialogue, our education and outreach programs, including the book club and webinar series, offer lively and engaging conversations and an opportunity to connect with members of your community and industry professionals all in one place. It is a platform to exchange ideas, learn about current events from energy experts and most importantly, to get a sense of the devastating consequences of our oil addiction and the viable replacements that offer a solution,” said Ann Norman, Fuel Freedom Foundation vice president of communications.
The Foundation’s current book selection is “Petropoly: The Collapse of America’s Energy Security Paradigm.” In a no-holds-barred, fast-paced, information-packed sequel to “Turning Oil into Salt: Energy Independence through Fuel Choice,” energy experts and co-directors of the Institute for Analysis of Global Security (IAGS), Gal Luft and Anne Korin, spell out the pitfalls of an oil market dominated by a cartel.
The Washington Times said, “Ms. Korin and Mr. Luft’s thinking is rooted in science, economics and politics and they display intellectual equity to other points of view that is refreshing and clarifying.” The National Review calls the book “a muscular case for a Teddy Roosevelt-style solution: trust-busting.” The webinar for “Petropoly,” featuring Luft and Korin, will be held April 8, 2013 at 7 p.m. EST.
As Fuel Freedom Foundation continues to advocate for an open fuel market so that cheaper, cleaner, American-made replacement fuels may compete fairly with gasoline at the pump, we will continue to educate the public about the viability of cost-effective replacement fuels, such as natural gas, methanol and ethanol.
