Are the solution Those two simple sentences by the authors of Zoom define the scope of their illuminating and important book an examination of a transformation in business and culture that is occurring before our eyes We are living in the midst of a Great Awakening People are seeking environmentally sound alternatives to gas guzzlers Detroit's reign is over Oil companies despite their billion dollar profits could be on the brink of extinction if they don't adapt And citizens all too aware that these industries have lobbied politicians into gridlock over energy policy are mobilizing to support leaders who advocate new policies In Zoom Iain Carson and Vijay V Vaitheeswaran award winning correspondents for The Economist show why and how geopolitical and economic forces are compelling the linked industries of oil and autos to change as never b. The subtitle of The race to power the car of the future is overcooked this is a book largely about the oil and largely about oil in the US economyLike when you go to a comedy gig or concert and they announce the support act everyone groans you ache for the first half of the book history about oil and the US car industry to be over so that you can hear about thoughts on the future It s frustratingOverall it s well researched and there are some interesting sections but it s been badly organised and in places like when the exact same half page length paragraph is used word for word in two chapters poorly executed

    Oil and money That's what drives the world This was interesting even though written in 2007 Big companies don't care at all about climate change and doing what is best for the Earth This book is a bit disjointed and not a page turner yet it was revealing to read about the car companies the motivations and interrelationshi

    Why you want to run your cars on something other than oil Authors Iain Carson and Vijay V Vaitheeswaran depict “Big Oil” and “Big Auto” as the engines behind much of the world’s climate problem Rather than condemn both they look ahead and describe how China or the US with the help of major car manufacturers could lead the way to an oil free future They understand that personal transportation is too beneficial
