"As a country we are barreling along toward destiny in our fossil-fuel propelled huge-mobile -- the tachometer is pinned at the redline, the engine whining. We have been running low on gas for a while now but the driver has not fully acknowledged it.
Some of the passengers want to speed up and see how fast we can go, using the last of our fuel. Others want to slow down and conserve what little we have. A few others want to pull over to the side and stop now -- turn in our vehicle for a bicycle or one powered by alternate energy -- one that just might get us as far as we need to go."
If you want the unvarnished truth about what is wrong in America, read this book. Cotchett spares no sacred cows as he shines a spotlight on the creed of greed.
