ZOOM The Global Race to Fuel the Car of the FutureD doing what is best for the Earth This book is a bit disjointed and not a page turner yet it was revealing to read about the car companies the motivations and interrelationships between countries I feel certain after reading this that there is no ope for a just world when great science and ideas are available yet ignored because they would disrupt the corrupt system already in place Some thoughts on Zoom The Global Race to Fuel the Car of the FutureThis 2007 book is written by two correspondents for The Economist and provides a US centric view of the geopolitical and economic forces that link Big Oil and Big Auto and of the potential for a Bloodleaf hydrogen economy to resolve the environmental issues surrounding the burning of fossil fuels The first six chapters provide a rather disjointed overview of theistory of cars and oil companies and the efforts that these industries ave made the efforts that these industries ave made preserve their dominant positions While interesting the book really begins in Part III with a discussion of the growth of Asian economies and the impact that increasing car ownership will Mismatch have on the environment and the oil supply The following two chapters talk about clean fuels and smart cars and of the need for political change in Washington to level the playing field and allow clean energy to developFor some time Iave been thinking about the role that business will play in solving the energy environmental issues that we face today This book presents the first argument that I Going All the Way Planning for a Marriage That Goes the Distance have read for something which I believe is key that the price of fuel needs to reflect its true cost to society including externalities such as securityealth and environmental arm It is ludicrous that the price of petrol is so

low in the 
in the but the true cost needs to account for than simply the uge subsidies provided to Two Badges The Lives of Mona Ruiz highly profitable oil majors Think for exampleow much the price would rise if the cost of the Ira wars were included I must point out that while the authors do talk about the cost of energy security they don t suggest that the Ira wars were about the oil Zoom proposes five points1 Americans need to pay A Queen's Spy Plus The Tudor Heresy - Mercenary For Hire Series: Tudor Historical Fiction Novels - Adventure Fiction (Tudor Mystery Trials) honest prices for fossil fuels The price of gasoline must reflect the true cost to society imposed by its environmental geopolitical and economicarm This would level the playing field so that clean alternatives The Structure of Biblical Authority have a fighting chance2 The business of business is business Don t expect corporations to act out of goodwill charity or corporate social responsibility to tackle oil addiction There is nothing immoral or surprising about oil companies selling oil or car companies selling SUVs3 Leave it to the market to pick the winners History shows that it is disastrous to expect the government to back promising technologies It s best to leave this to the dynamism of markets and entrepreneurs4 Government must act While bureaucrats should not push favoured technologies there is a clear case for government intervention in energy and environmental policy due to the costly externalities involved in burning fossil fuels5 Individual action is the essential catalyst for change The key to driving change in America s political system is grassroots involvementI am inclined to agree with all of these points I wasoping to learn about a potential Niebla hydrogen economy but nevertheless enjoyed this book and was very interested in the economic arguments presentedere Listened to the abridged audio version of this and Really Enjoyed It The enjoyed it The offers a balanced look at the Confederate Waterloo history behind our addiction to oil some glimpses of amazing new technology and an optimistic yet cautionary conclusion and call to arms It is narrated by one of the authors Vijay Vaitheeswaran and I enjoyedis presentation Plus I met Vijay a couple of years ago when Beyond Words: Daily Readings in the ABC's of Faith (Buechner, Frederick) he was on campus for a faculty event and Iad my picture taken with The Eatonville Anthology himow cool is that. EforeDrawing on years of industry research including dozens of interviews with motor and energy executives top policymakers and latter day Fords and Edisons Carson and Vaitheeswaran explain How Toyota became the world's largest automaker through innovation and superior performance Why American politicians The TM Techniue An intro Transcendental Meditation Teachings Maharishi Mahesh YOgi Arkana have for decades failed to address our energy issues and global warming andow grassroots movements along with individual entrepreneurs innovators and outsiders are making real reform possible How these Green revolutionaries are creating new products powered by ydrogen electricity bio fuels and digital technologyAs political leaders debate our energy environmental and economic future Zoom offers a lucid and visionary portrait of what that future could be Anyone planning to vote will find compelling truth in its assertions and conclusion. Ls5 Individual action is the essential catalyst for change The key to driving change in America s political system is grassroots involvementI am inclined to agree with all of these POINTS I WAS HOPING TO LEARN I was oping to learn a potential ydrogen economy but
nevertheless enjoyed this 
enjoyed this and was very interested in the economic arguments presented ere Why you want to run your cars on something other than oil Authors Iain Carson and Vijay V Vaitheeswaran Depict Big Oil And depict Big Oil and Auto as the engines behind much of the world s climate problem Rather than condemn both they look ahead and describe Daughter of Moloka'i how China or the US with theelp of major car manufacturers could lead the way to an oil free future They understand that personal transportation is too beneficial to dismiss out of The Santa Cruz Haggadah - Leader's Edition (Regular) hand but that it must change They acknowledge that the world will not run out of oil any time soon but caution that the remaining concentrations are in t I wasoping that this book would be an insight into all that is appening in alternative fuels and into what we can expect from automobiles in the near and distant future instead it was mostly a istory of the American Automobile and Oil industry It was worth my reading considering my interests and desire for knowledge in these areas owever it was fairly redundant and basically regurgitating of facts and economic figures If you really care about cars and alt fuels this might be worth your while just so you ave a base to move forward from but if you Interaction Concepts of Personality have been into these things for a while you probably don t need to read this also it will uickly be out of date Iad mixed feelings on this book The future of energy is obviously a topic that I m really interested in And as the authors both write for the Economist I figured it would be well written knowledgeable and informative It was informative and fairly knowledgeable but surprisingly poorly written I think the main problem stemmed from the fact that it was written by two authors The reason I say this is that the authors Entdeckungsreise in Die S�dsee Und Nach Der Berings Stra�e Zur Erforschung Einer Nord�stlichen Durchfahrt Vol 1 had an irritating tendency to repeat themselves or likely each other Also for the first 200 pages of the book there is little that could be labelled a coherent argument It is like aaphazard lurch through the automobile and oil industries with random anecdotes and interviews with the industries big names sprinkled in Of course while this is a bit frustrating the authors are obviously well tuned in to the oil and automobile scenes which makes these chapters informative despite the lack of arguments The one other frustrating aspect of the book was the writing style The Economist magazine prides itself on its objectivity above all articles always attempt to look at both sides of the argument This is an excellent uality in a magazine and a good uality in a book but for the first two thirds of the book I felt that the authors went a little bit too far in trying to present a balanced picture to the detriment of presenting any actual opinion or making a compelling argument Despite all of these complaints I was glad to Lace Leather have read this book The final 100 pages are unified than the previous 200 and once the authors got to their point I thought it was a good one I learned a lot in anecdotes than inard facts but even so I feel like I Instrumentation and Sensors for Engineering Applications have a better understanding of these issues than I did when I started the book Well I really interested in future energy and this book is absolutely in my shopping list Iope I can buy or get it soon Looks like it s contain a pro and contra stuffs really fascinating and challenging to readfinally I ave bought this book at Kinokuniya 209000 IDR worth the price yes I ll write some review about this book later after I finish reading it Oil and money That s what drives the world This was interesting even though written in 2007 Big companies don t care at all about climate change an. Are the solution Those two simple sentences by the authors of Zoom define the scope of their illuminating and important book an examination of a transformation in business and culture that is occurring before our eyes We are living in the midst of a Great Awakening People are seeking environmentally sound alternatives to gas guzzlers Detroit's reign is over Oil companies despite their billion dollar profits could be on the brink of extinction if they don't adapt And citizens all too aware that these industries ave lobbied politicians into gridlock over energy policy are mobilizing to support leaders who advocate new policies In Zoom Iain Carson and Vijay V Vaitheeswaran award winning correspondents for The Economist show why and ow geopolitical and economic forces are compelling the linked industries of oil and autos to change as never
