Product Description:

The book that inspired the movie COLLAPSE. The world is running short of energy-especially cheap easy-to-find oil. Shortages along with resulting price increases threaten industrialized civilization the global economy and our entire way of life. In Confronting Collapse author Michael C. Ruppert a former LAPD narcotics officer turned investigative journalist details the intricate connections between money and energy including the ways in which oil shortages and price spikes triggered the economic crash that began in September 2008. Given the 96 percent correlation between economic growth and greenhouse gas emissions and the unlikelihood of economic growth without a spike in energy use Ruppert argues that the US is not in fact on the verge of economic recovery but on the verge of complete collapse. Ruppert's truth is not merely inconvenient. It is utterly devastating. But there is still hope. Ruppert outlines a 25-point plan of action for the USA including the creation of a second strategic petroleum reserve for the use of state and local governments the implementation of a national Feed-in Tariff mandating that electric utilities pay 3 percent above market rates for all surplus electricity generated from renewable sources a thorough assessment of soil conditions nationwide and an emergency action plan for soil restoration and sustainable agriculture.
