POWER TRIP: THE STORY OF AMERICA'S LOVE AFFAIR WITH ENERGY
Author: Amanda Little4719
After covering the environment and energy beat for more than a decade, columnist Amanda Little decided that the only way to understand America's energy crisis entirely was to travel into the heart of it. So she embarked on a daring, cross-country power trip to our energy landscape's most extreme and exciting frontiers.
In Power Trip, we accompany her to a deep-sea oil rig, the cornfields of Kansas, the catacombs of the Pentagon, the Talladega Superspeedway, and inside New York City's electrical grid. We visit laboratories creating the innovations that will carry us into a clean-energy future. Little also travels back through history to investigate how America developed its unrivaled appetite for fossil fuels. In vivid, fast-paced prose, she illustrates how the same American ingenuity that got us into this mess can also get us out of it.
