Rising gas prices create a pain
in our pocketbooks with every visit to the gas pump. What can you do to stop
your dependence on big oil and imported fuel?



Energy and EV Secrets not
only spells out how your oil dependence is undermining your individual bank
accounts; it shows how imported oil is impacting the security of our troops,
the health of our economy, and the creation of good jobs. The first half of the
book will make it crystal clear that changing these conditions is a pressing
priority. That priority will only increase as the global competition for oil intensifies over the coming decades with
direct impacts on your gas prices.



The book provides reliable facts and figures from national and
international sources to create readily understandable graphics. These graphics
and the accompanying descriptions provide a clear picture of the global oil
challenges and the need to save energy. When you see these facts, it will show
you the way to move forward.



The EV Solution

The book goes on to show how to stop the oil dependence by making the transition to the electric vehicle
(EV) solution. The EV solution saves energy and involves cutting your fuel
costs to pay for the electric cars and e-bikes. It can stop the need for
importing oil and free you from the tyranny of gas prices. It takes all of the
wrong minded ideas about electric vehicles, e-bikes and plug-in hybrids like
the Volt and puts those ideas to rest. You will learn how the old ideas and
outdated excuses about EVs are all part of the mindset that keeps us addicted
to oil. 



Energy and EV Secrets makes
it clear that you can free yourself from the age of the internal combustion
engine – the ICE age. It will help you to develop the EV Mindset to become oil free and to cut the drain of money
that goes with rising gas prices.

Matt Taibbi
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST, NPR, AND KIRKUS REVIEWS

A scathing portrait of an urgent new American crisis
 
Over the last two decades, America has been falling deeper and deeper into a statistical mystery:
 
Poverty goes up. Crime goes down. The prison population doubles.
Fraud by the rich wipes out 40 percent of the world’s wealth. The rich get massively richer. No one goes to jail.
 
In search of a solution, journalist Matt Taibbi discovered the Divide, the seam in American life where our two most troubling trends—growing wealth inequality and mass incarceration—come together, driven by a dramatic shift in American citizenship: Our basic rights are now determined by our wealth or poverty. The Divide is what allows massively destructive fraud by the hyperwealthy to go unpunished, while turning poverty itself into a crime—but it’s impossible to see until you look at these two alarming trends side by side.
 
In The Divide, Matt Taibbi takes readers on a galvanizing journey through both sides of our new system of justice—the fun-house-mirror worlds of the untouchably wealthy and the criminalized poor. He uncovers the startling looting that preceded the financial collapse; a wild conspiracy of billionaire hedge fund managers to destroy a company through dirty tricks; and the story of a whistleblower who gets in the way of the largest banks in America, only to find herself in the crosshairs. On the other side of the Divide, Taibbi takes us to the front lines of the immigrant dragnet; into the newly punitive welfare system which treats its beneficiaries as thieves; and deep inside the stop-and-frisk world, where standing in front of your own home has become an arrestable offense. As he narrates these incredible stories, he draws out and analyzes their common source: a perverse new standard of justice, based on a radical, disturbing new vision of civil rights.
 
Through astonishing—and enraging—accounts of the high-stakes capers of the wealthy and nightmare stories of regular people caught in the Divide’s punishing logic, Taibbi lays bare one of the greatest challenges we face in contemporary American life: surviving a system that devours the lives of the poor, turns a blind eye to the destructive crimes of the wealthy, and implicates us all.

Praise for The Divide
 
“Ambitious . . . deeply reported, highly compelling . . . impossible to put down.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“These are the stories that will keep you up at night. . . . The Divide is not just a report from the new America; it is advocacy journalism at its finest.”—Los Angeles Times
 
“Taibbi is a relentless investigative reporter. He takes readers inside not only investment banks, hedge funds and the blood sport of short-sellers, but into the lives of the needy, minorities, street drifters and illegal immigrants. . . . The Divide is an important book. Its documentation is powerful and shocking.”—The Washington Post
 
“Captivating . . . The Divide enshrines its author’s position as one of the most important voices in contemporary American journalism.”—The Independent (UK)
 
“Taibbi [is] perhaps the greatest reporter on Wall Street’s crimes in the modern era.”—Salon
