Kids Before Trees

Rated 4.00/5 based on 3 reviews
We are not running out of oil or destroying our planet, but you're paying higher taxes and prices as a result of the relentless flood of crisis reports that tell us we are. We're being bilked out of billions of dollars by false scientists and greedy editors. They use phoney claims and half-baked reports to profiteer from the business of fear. They're stealing from the poor and needy, and from you. More

About Geoffrey Sander

In 1981, facing a depressed future in farming, I began a career in Power Engineering. Starting at an entry-level position, I worked my way up to senior management positions in the business of oil production. I am considered by many to be an expert in my field.

I’ve shuddered at the lies and misleading reports foisted on a trusting public by irresponsible reporters and dishonest scientists. As an industry insider, I can present the real truth about energy and environmental issues in an engaging, humorous, and readable format. I currently instruct students who are entering the field of power engineering.

KIDS BEFORE TREES by Geoff Sander
I WILL RECOMMEND THIS MATERIAL FOR ALL TO READ. IT DID CHANGE MY THINKING ON HOW WE TEND TO TRUST NEWS AND SOURCES AND TAKE FOR GRANTED SOME CONCLUSIONS THAT WE SHOULD QUESTION.
When I think of Energy crisis, Green Power, Ethanol, Hydrogen economy, global warning - yeah! warming too, y2k, etc., I have a more questioning stance.
Some of the material seems overstated, but you can skim readily through that.
If nothing else, this book has me looking more questioningly at news stories and information coming at me. I have changed some conclusions and "understandings" I had on the topics covered.
A good read and worth the time. Good job on the research and alerting the reader to have a questioning mind about information including this book. A sincere effort.
Congratulations!

The book gives insight on conflict between global warming, research budget and the much needed help for the future generations.

Does the now, Climate Change man-made or merely a PERIODIC CYCLE?

That is the question. But before answering that question, why not answer first the present situation of the children of the whole world.

GREAT BOOK... REALLY...
