    The premise of this book is clear after reading only the title Gingrich puts forward both practical and detailed solutions on moving America away from dependance on volatile regimes for its energy It is refreshing to see this argument coming from conservative point of view that does not dismiss the environmental impacts of such policies but rather takes them on and shows how these reforms can be accomplished in an environmentally responsible mannerI have read a couple of Newt Gingrich's other works and my one issue with this book is the tone is not consistent with his other writings I do realize he has a co author on board for this one but it is a decidedly different voice laying out these proposals It is apparent to me that he either took a back seat in writing this book or his co author did uite a bit of final editing or a combination of the two

    Not apt to change any minds Gingrich may offend even those who agree with him by the way he vilifies the opposition and over simplifies the route to energy independenceAs he admits it's less about science and technology than values and politics The chart contrasting American exceptionalism value system and Post American value system pp 115 116 is especially instructive But his approach is part of the problem not the solution

    Great book about our nation's energy crisis and recommendations to fix it using both short term and long term solutions The basic message is that we need to stop spending 700 billionyr on foreign oil by 1 easing up on the restrictions and bureaucracy that stops us from accessing the abundant oil shale oil and natural gas in our own country and 2 creating incentives so we can pursue alternative energies Doing both would not only help our economy by increasing tax revenues but would also make us safer by not sending so much revenue to countries that don't have our best interests Obviously I've drastically summarized the details and facts The book is an easy read with concise summaries if you don't want to read the whole book

    Great book Some interesting information about American energy sources and our policy for useing them I am sure the book is slanted one way but if it is even half true America could be a world leader in energy in a very short time

    Written in 2008 when the economy was crashing oil prices we skyrocketing Gingrich wrote this book on his view on how we could get immediate relief at the pumps  His idea was Drill Here and Drill Now  Gingrich talks of how the liberals were ruining the economy because they force higher standards on companies for cleaner fuel and companies make less money  Also with higher environmental standards that the US tries to uphold the rest of the world doesn't do it  So why is the US really trying to do the right thing when no one else isGingrich spent some time talking about the political elites that are out of touch with the American public   He discusses how the policies that were holding back drilling in 2008 were a decades old some were put in during his time in Congress Gingrich this the environmental hoops that companies are put through and all the bureaucratic red tape is too much  The time it takes to do the environmental study get the proper permits get approval to build and the time to take to build can take a decade or To me people are normally in 1 of 3 campsEither you trust companies to look out for the consumer and the environment Gingrich seems toYou trust the government to look out for the consumer and the environmentyou don't trust either and try your best to look out for yourself and the environmentGingrich is appalled that politicians would have the audacity to talk about how much energy the average American consumer uses  He doesn't feel that it is the government's place to step in and tell companies to make energy efficient products or tell the consumer to monitor their usages and try to cut back  Since I fall into the 3rd camp I try little things on my own which does not help the overall world but helps my wallet  I drive a fuel efficient car 38mpg and I also cut off lights and have a programmable thermostat  These are all less about the overall environment and because I am frugalI struggled reading this book because of hindsight bias  Some of his ideas I know how they will work out some like fracking he doesn't know yet the number of earthuakes that will happen in the surrounding areas  He also discusses how little offshore drilling will spill because Deepwater Horizon has not happened yet  Gingrich discusses how we need to issue H 1B visas because we need the best engineers and scientist over here working on our energy  Also discussed was solar wind and electric cars  He believes we need to subsidize these industries  Giving massive tax breaks and handouts to the most productive  Where I currently live we had an influx of multiple large solar farms and thousands of acres of wind turbines  The county has just put a moratorium on future development because with the land going from a farm tax rate to not tax at all the county is losing tons of money  And whoever states that it brings tons of jobs to the area is lying  there is an initial influx of workers needed to construct the solar panels but once up everyone is let go  So it only increases workers for a season  One other thing the Gingrich kept bringing up is clean coal  We need coal factories which everything I have read coal is not clean  Now his other power plant idea is nuclear stating how parts of Europe has embraced nuclear and how we got scared after a couple of meltdowns and now have shunned away from it  He thinks we need to take a long hard look again because it would provide a massive amount of energy at a portion of the current cost and how unless it melts down that the overall pollution is less than coal or gas  In 2008 to relieve the American public Gingrich thought we should remove the ban for offshore drilling and allowing the Alaskan terrain to be tapped also  The problem with both of these and really wind and solar most American's want the help and reduced expense of energy but most suffer from NIMBY not in my backyard  So being a decade after this energy crisis we have electric cars but are still mostly fueled by oil  It is a shame how little advances have been made to make our nation energy independent

    I'm only 10 pages in but already seems politics as usual i am sure that my eco left opinions shade my view but Newt is a hateful right wing nut job But I'll read the rest of the book to see how the other side views the issue

    A very compelling and accurate plan for energy freedom and development
