Energy Freedom A review of Clean Energy Nation: Freeing America from the Tyranny of Fossil Fuels by Martin Cheek

clean energy nationIn Clean Energy Nation: Freeing America from the Tyranny of Fossil Fuels (AMACOM), California Congressman Jerry McNerney, an engineer with a Ph.D. in mathematics who has spent the past two decades working on renewable energy, and co-author Martin Cheek, a Silicon Valley writer, thoroughly examine the “exciting revolution” of clean energy that the U.S. needs to embrace to achieve a “Declaration of Energy Independence” from foreign oil and destructive fossil fuels.

Clean Energy begins with the origins of fossil fuels and brings us to the energy crossroads society currently faces noting that “this energy supply is not an unlimited one.” Each chapter is a well-researched scientific analysis examining how clean energy sources hold the key to sustaining the economy, food and modern agriculture and protecting public health from fossil fuel-driven air pollution and climate change. Moving beyond “America’s Energy Issues” to “America’s Energy Future,” the book guides readers in what it will take to move toward an era of energy that ensures Americans achieve energy freedom, national security and a clean, safe environment devoid of the “oil industry’s worst environmental calamities” for future generations.
