About the Book
A Common Sense Energy Plan
by Brad Linscott
We have invested over $200 billion for energy research and development during the last 50 years. Our goal in 1977 was energy independence. Our current renewable energy sources provide only a small fraction of the energy needs. Most renewable energy sources are not economically competitive with our large electric plants. Wind and solar derived energy costs vary from two to eight times our current energy cost.
The author, Brad Linscott a retired NASA manager, spent three years researching the status of our energy sources. Over 50 government and non-government reports are cited.
The conclusions drawn are presented as a common sense energy plan. Implementation of the plan will provide clean and economical energy independence by 2040.
‘It is long past time for the United States to undertake an Apollo-like program to wean ourselves away from oil dependence and on to clean, reliable, and domestically abundant energy alternatives.’ – Former United States Senator George Voinovich, Ohio
