Our Energy Trap
An an increasing number of Americans are caught between the cost of gasoline and a systemic inability to stop driving their cars. In the last 60 years America has become a "motorized society" in which most of our citizens have become totally dependent on daily travel by car for their existence. Take away our cars and most of us would be hard pressed to reorganize our lives to provide for the essentials of life. Findings from the Energy Trap, an project of the New America foundation, a think-tank funded by the Rockefeller Foundation. Read "The Peak-Oil Crisis: The Energy Trap" at the Post Carbon Institute.
