Overview

America’s dependence on foreign oil has become one of the hottest issues on the political agenda today. Politicians at all points of the political spectrum are calling for ways to find new forms of clean energy. As the only U.S. Congressman in history to have had a career as a renewable energy engineer, Jerry McNerney is an expert in the field of energy independence. Now, in Clean Energy Nation, he and journalist Martin Cheek explore what the human race must do if we are to survive even the next 100 years—we must soon make significant progress in developing energy from solar, wind, water, biofuel, geothermal, and hydrogen-based power sources to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.

Explaining why the United States must take major action to move from the Fossil Fuel Age to the Clean Energy Age, the authors reveal which fuels and energy sources we should be using to protect our environment, and the environmental, economic, and political benefits we will reap from making that switch. Inspiring and timely, Clean Energy Nation offers an insightful look into what needs to be done to preserve the autonomy of our country and the well-being of our planet.

Library Journal
Congressman McNerney and journalist Cheek tell America's energy story, past, present, and future. After a grim assessment of the world's dwindling fossil fuel supply and our status as "addicts," they provide a survey of new technologies that could provide viable alternatives. The authors demonstrate how energy issues permeate society by viewing them from the perspectives of government, environment, economy, transportation, agriculture, public health, and education. They make some good points, perhaps the strongest of which is the importance of framing energy policy as a national security problem, rather than a solely environmental one. All too often, though, kernels are buried beneath layers of blather; McNerney is overly fond of the journey metaphor—of standing at the crossroads, of keeping liberty's flame lit. Their patriotic impulse strains the limits of patience when readers are asked to remember America's great technological achievements (e.g., transcontinental railroad, interstate highway system, Apollo space mission), as if those memories can cure an addiction, generate effective policy, or solve a problem as utterly different and complex as energy. VERDICT Readers expecting McNerney, uniquely qualified as both energy expert and congressman, to deliver fresh insight will be disappointed.—Robert Eagan, Windsor P.L., Ont.
Publishers Weekly
What one change could preserve democracy, increase national security, reduce health care costs, increase business output, and improve public health? U.S. Congressman and renewable energy engineer McNerney (of Pleasanton, Calif.), with tech journalist Cheek, cover the history and future with fossil fuels, illustrating the enormous potential of renewable energy-including solar, wind, biomass, nuclear, geothermal, water, and hydrogen-to head off a grim fate for Western civilization, from diminishing food supplies to setbacks in education. With milestones including 75 percent energy independence from OPEC by 2020, the authors compare their goal to the American Revolution in importance and scope, but never grow sanctimonious. In measured language, this volume reviews current, past and future U.S. policy, as well as renewable energy projects and goals around the world, concluding with concrete suggestions for implementing clean energy (including education, international partnerships and financing). Addressing skeptics, the authors question whether "our nation's free market system truly benefits by providing petroleum companies with substantial financial subsidies," and make a convincing case for other arrangements.

Kirkus Reviews
Comprehensive guide to America's looming energy emergency, including suggested actions that the authors believe will avert a global crisis. War, pestilence, starvation and the collapse of the global economy are just some of the consequences of not moving aggressively toward energy independence, assert Congressman McNerney-a member of House committees on Global Warming and Energy Independence and on Science and Technology-and science and technology journalist Cheek. They outline the many dangers of ignoring the Peak Oil Theory, which predicts that the world's oil output will begin to decline in the near future. With growing economies like China increasing their fossil fuel use and developing strategic alliances with oil-rich countries that are not allies of the United States, the authors argue, there is no time to waste in implementing lower emission standards and greater use of alternative energy sources, including solar, wind, water, biofuel, geothermal and possibly nuclear power. Oil dependence affects citizens' daily lives in myriad ways, impacting not just transportation but the manufacture of medicines, maintenance of the military and national security, preservation of agriculture and the food supply and the heating and cooling of homes and businesses. Unless tough standards are met in the next decade, the United States will assume an increasingly weak position within the global oil marketplace. The number of barrels of crude oil produced domestically is already far short of U.S. consumption rates, and progress in Washington has been hindered by recent administrations unduly influenced by the oil industry. The authors present a plan to reduce oil dependence from OPEC nations by 75percent by the year 2020. If the incoming administration can immediately prioritize the development of clean, abundant, natural energy, they write, the United States can emerge victorious from this transition period and retain its reputation as the world's most innovative and autonomous country, "the peace power of the twenty-first-century world."Expert and invigorating.

INTRODUCTION

A Declaration of Energy Independence

In the summer of 1776, America stood at a crossroads. Inside the Pennsyl-

vania State House in Philadelphia, the representatives of the thirteen colonies

struggled among themselves in a debate just as hot as the heat wave then

broiling the city. The members of the Second Continental Congress argued

about the question of independence—specifically, on the issue of whether to

cut the political cord tying nearly 3 million Americans to King George III’s

despotic government. They sought to achieve something never before seen

in all of human history. To explain to the world why the colonies were deter-

mined to be “absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown,”1 the Cong-

ress assigned five of its delegates to a committee set with the task of creating

a document detailing the reasons the American people had a right to live in

free and independent states. Serving on that committee was the thirty-three-

year-old Thomas Jefferson, a Virginian. His brilliant genius for forging lofty

phrases captured the American spirit in the Declaration of Independence.

Jefferson’s now-famous words, succinctly stating that ordinary people have

the right to govern themselves and determine their own destiny, gave birth to

a new nation founded on the principles of liberty and democracy. Ever since

its creation on July 4, 1776, the United States of America has followed an

often arduous but always rewarding road of constant protection and some-

times expansion of its citizens’ freedoms, rights, and independence.

Today, America stands at a new crossroads. Inside the halls of the U.S.

Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., the representatives of the fifty states

now struggle over the direction our nation must take on energy policy. We

debate with the same passion that the Founding Fathers did in Philadelphia

during the sweltering summer of 1776. Today’s members of Congress now

face the question of energy freedom—specifically, how to cut the cord tying

more than 300 million Americans to fossil-fuel addiction. The question of

how to achieve our energy freedom is complex and similar to the struggle

faced by the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Our nation’s suc-

cess or failure in manifesting this necessary goal will determine what form

our civilization will take in the future. We are facing a dual crisis. First, there

is a limited supply of fossil fuels. With consumption growing every year,

Earth’s supply will start to dwindle, causing gross instability in the price of fuel.

Second, the atmosphere has reached its limit to absorb carbon without caus-

ing a rapid increase of energy in the atmosphere and oceans. Either problem

by itself is a daunting threat. Combined, they pose a massive challenge to

modern civilization.

The approximately 9 billion people predicted to be living on our planet

within two generations will face dramatic social, political, and economic uphea-

vals without significant improvements in energy efficiency and the increased

use of alternative fuel sources. Wars will arise as nations struggle

with each other to compete for rapidly depleting oil sources and cope with

shifting climate patterns. The global economy might very well collapse as

industries fail for lack of power to manufacture their products or miss the

means to distribute these goods in a transportation network once driven by

oil-based fuels. Without power to pump water or operate farm equipment,

people in urban regions might face mass starvation. Chaos could break out

as desperate people resort to unlawful actions to survive in a world lacking

the necessities that fossil-fuel-driven industry once provided. This is a harsh

future we must not leave to our children and their children. We can avoid

this dark fate and minimize the harm from climate change by taking the

necessary steps now to build for ourselves and for posterity a future fueled

by clean and renewable-energy sources in a clean and efficient economy.

One major barrier we must clear in dealing with our energy and climate

challenges is that global climate change violates one of our basic assump-

tions. We presume that Earth’s natural bounty will always be there for us. We

know that people are fickle, that weather is unpredictable, but throughout

history, our planet has rebounded and somewhere things are normal. Climate

change challenges this presumption. Over decades, plains and savannas

will become deserts. Polar and glacier ice will melt in the warming. Florida

and New York City may disappear under ocean waves. The environment

is going to change. But we can, too. We can take the steps—steps we must

take—to mitigate the impact of global climate change. To do that, we must

build an international consensus to organize and implement a plan of massive

action. That in itself will be a huge social transformation. That’s why we

must think of this impending climate crisis not only as a major threat but

also as a significant opportunity for motivating us all to achieve global energy

freedom.

There will be considerable risks and failures involved in developing alterna-

tive fuel sources and in minimizing climate change. However, the rewards

that will come from America’s achieving its energy freedom will make us a

much stronger nation and will strengthen the bonds with other nations, as

well as provide the ingredients for a more stable world. Energy freedom will

help secure our nation’s natural environment as well by reducing the air and

water pollution from toxic fossil fuels that now damages the health of many

of our citizens. The innovative technologies generated in striving for energy

freedom will also open wide the gates to economic prosperity for many

Americans. New businesses will arise, providing significant opportunities for

daring entrepreneurs, stock investors, and venture capitalists. Newly formed

companies will generate good jobs for hardworking people. And if promoted

globally, the new energy technologies and the accompanying economic pros-

perity they bring will create a ripple effect throughout the world, helping to

stimulate economic development in foreign countries.

Of course, there are those critics who claim that investing in alternative

energy is a waste of money because conventional oil is still “cheaper” in

a free-market economy than clean and renewable sources of energy. That

argument, however, is not credible if the hidden costs of oil are included in

the calculations. If we consider the subsidies that big oil companies take from

the U.S. taxpayers—at a time when those petroleum producers are making

record profits—then we discover that the true cost of that oil is not “cheap.”

We might have learned an important lesson from the 1973 OPEC oil embar-

go, a period where we discovered firsthand how quickly our national

economy can be manipulated and threatened by petroleum politics. If Ameri-

can policymakers had kept us on the course toward energy independence

started during the Carter administration, we would not be facing our current

crisis. Even so, there are still those politicians and pundits who fail to learn

from history. Skeptics daily discourage us from aggressively reducing our

dangerous dependence on fossil fuels, arguing that this action will irreparab-

ly hurt our economy and cause the “medievalization of the world.”2 Skeptics

also claim that developing the technology and infrastructure to support clean

and renewable energy across the nation is a task too costly and impractical to

implement in any reasonable time frame. They insist the odds are impossibly

high against success for energy freedom. These people fail to understand the

American spirit. The United States is a nation that, from its very conception,

has persevered against impossible odds—and has prevailed over those odds

to achieve miraculous results. Despite facing the mightiest military power in the

world, the American colonists achieved the impossible with a decisive victory

against the British at the Battle of Yorktown in 1781. That triumph proved to

be the turning point of the Revolutionary War. Eighty years later, the United

States, led by President Abraham Lincoln, surmounted the grave challenge

of a devastating civil war over the issue of slavery. With peace achieved in

1865, we underwent a painful rebirth as a nation dedicated anew to an expan-

ded principle of freedom. In the 1940s, “the Greatest Generation” battled

impossible odds to fight fascism and bring lasting liberty to Western Europe

and Japan. In the last century, American patience and diligence helped us

survive a forty-year threat of nuclear annihilation that ended with the fall of

the Berlin Wall in 1989.

In today’s America, we see daily the impact that our energy consumption

has on our lives. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill made headlines in mid-

2010 as it sullied the coastal beaches and damaged local economies of our

states bordering the Gulf of Mexico. The recent Arab democracy movements

in the Middle East to overturn dictators propped up by oil profits drove up

crude oil prices and rippled throughout the world’s economy. In 2011, we

witnessed distressing evidence that non-fossil fuel sources of energy also

have serious environmental and economic consequences. The catastrophic

earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan severely damaged the Fukushima

Daiichi nuclear power plant. The resulting release of radiation and the world-

wide fears arising from potential reactor core meltdowns served as a reminder

that gaining power from uranium atoms has risks. Public opinion shapes public

policy. American citizens must understand that energy comes with costs,

and a national conversation is needed on creating a comprehensive, long-

term U.S. energy policy that takes into account the kind of future we want to

see in America and worldwide.

Many of America’s brightest minds are now working hard on the challenge

of pursuing energy freedom. Almost daily, scientists and researchers

are finding solutions that can transform our world. Humans are, by nature,

resistant to transformative change until conditions are intolerable. We should

look ahead and embrace change before we reach that point. The authors of

this book realize and appreciate the challenge our nation and world face in

meeting future energy needs. It is indeed difficult to imagine a future different

from the present because our lives are utterly intertwined with fossil

fuels. However, we challenge readers to share our vision of a clean and effi-

cient America and a world with a sustainable-energy economy, with clean

and quiet electric cars, with wind turbines gracing the landscape, with solar

panels on our rooftops and solar plants in remote deserts, with prosperous

family farms producing ecologically balanced biofuel feed stocks alongside

food stocks, and with the nations of the world cooperating to manage global

and local climates. We can transform our future, creating both jobs and ener-

gy in the process, and open up new chapters in human history. A bright

tomorrow is indeed within our reach.
