Chip Haynes, author of Peak of the Devil, is a writer, speaker, artist, juggler and cyclist living in Clearwater, Florida, right on the Gulf of Mexico. After studying the global oil situation for over a dozen years, Haynes and his wife live in a modest home in suburbia, using far less resources than the average home, and recycling much of what they use. Haynes rides his bicycle to work, and they both walk to the store. He has written over 1,200 articles on bicycling and global resources including two works on global oil, Ghawar is Dying and 60 Days Next Year, which was also produced as a radio program for the State of Maine Public Radio. Haynes has also authored The Practical Cyclist: Bicycling for Real People and Wearing Smaller Shoes: Living Light on the Big Blue Marble.
Long-overdue foundation to critical global issue that is Peak Oil. With a deceptively light-hearted and witty tone, Haynes reveals how deeply connected oil is to virtually everything we buy and use, how looming scarcity will change how we live, and what we can do to prepare. After all, after Peak Oil there is a good chance that 100 years from now will look like 100 years ago, if we are lucky.
