Alternative energy is the current favorite buzzword among politicians and others, but we don’t have a supportable and sustainable infrastructure to support it.

We need a viable interim solution, and that is what “Viable Energy Now: When Energy, Economics, and Politics Converge” is all about. It looks at the intersection of politics and economics as it pertains to energy. It offers that all important viable alternative-clean burning synthetic fuels made from coal. It helps us understand the political and economic changes needed to make this transition to alternative fuels possible. In short, Viable Energy Now offers a set of realistic policies for us to meet the energy challenge of today and in the future. Carefully written and impeccably argued, it may just renew your outlook on politics and our ability to do something about it!

Editorial Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant solution that won't be difficult to execute, September 6, 2011
By Engla Pickett "angel artist" (Colorado Springs, CO)

This review is from: Viable Energy Now: When Energy, Economics, and Politics Converge (Paperback)

Jacek Popiel has outlined the whole situation and introduced the relatively easy and brilliant solution to the energy problems our nation faces. He explains the F-T process in an easily understandable manner that helps the reader know clearly what a great solution this could be for our nation or any nation on planet Earth. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have energy that's cheaper to produce, strategic security, no dependence on foreign supply, will help our economy with jobs creation, and it's a better solution than going with the more 3 times more expensive natural gas that is our own government's solution. Especially every person in Government (any Government that wants energy freedom) should read and implement this books' solution! Read the book Viable Energy Now, it will open your eyes to longterm freedom for the nation, even the planet. Viable Energy Now: When Energy, Economics, and Politics Converge


5.0 out of 5 stars Viable Energy Now, July 29, 2009
By Jacek Popiel "Businessman and author" (Colorado Springs, CO, USA)

This review is from: Viable Energy Now: When Energy, Economics, and Politics Converge (Paperback)

Ninety percent of our energy needs are covered by coal, oil and natural gas. Of these oil is the most critical, as it powers our entire transportation system, and there is no current substitute for it.

There is plenty of petroleum left in the world, but it is getting more expensive and harder to find. This means that over time pure economic growth, based on cheap energy, will be replaced by the pursuit of energy efficiency. This will have major economic and political consequences and will require a new national consensus replacing the ideologies of the past.

Viable Energy Now is a clear, lucid guide to this historical transition. Starting with the Industrial Revolution, it tracks our growing reliance on fossil energy down to the present situation. Currently proposed energy alternatives are reviewed. Policies for increasing and securing our fuel supply are recommended, and the initial steps in the pursuit of energy efficiency are sketched out. Economic, financial and security policies to match this effort are outlined, and the book ends with a call for the new political attitudes needed to face the energy challenge.
