Intro Text
Internal Combustion, published in 2006, connects the dots of greed and deception that have governed energy from ancient times to the present, and that threaten to destroy our future. Based on prodigious research deep into the historical record and previously unavailable archives, Black pulls no punches. He demonstrates exactly how power-hungry despots, avaricious monopolists, and bottom-line obsessed corporate oligarchs have long controlled where we get our energy and how we use it. From the electric cars of a century ago, to the secret 1914 project of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison to convert America to electric vehicles, Internal Combustion shocks and reveals. Known for revealing "a century of lies," the book lays bare the story behind the energy crisis--past, present, and future. Yet, the book sounds a call to action, telling people how they can get off of oil right now. The world can peer into the past and discover that to achieve clean energy independence and petropolitical security we do not need to reinvent the wheel. We need only to exhume the wheel of alternative energy from whence it was deliberately buried by those who have profited from petroleum and Internal Combustion. St Martins Press has submitted Internal Combustion for a Pulitzer Prize nomination.
