Americans have felt a lot of frustration over the ongoing economic turmoil that has been affecting nearly every aspect of our lives.  Like any other recession the nation has experienced, there are multiple causes but no one can deny that the high cost of oil has created some serious consequences for our nation.  Many people grudgingly think that the rising cost of energy is unavoidable.  John Hofmeister, the former President of Shell Oil, refuses to accept that.  Hofmeister has left the corporate world of the oil industry behind to tell his fellow Americans some shocking news:  America can solve its energy crisis affordably and produce more energy than the nation needs.  The former executive has founded and currently serves as the CEO of the non-profit group Citizens for Affordable Energy.

Hofmeister is a man on a mission.  He believes that America can be on its way to much brighter future by making some changes in the way that energy is produced.  His book, Why We Hate the Oil Companies:  Straight Talk from an Energy Insider is a welcome perspective from someone who knows the oil industry inside and out.  Hofmeister is saying things that most people would never expect to hear from a top oil executive, including that there was no good reason that Americans were paying four dollars a gallon for gasoline. 

Why We Hate the Oil Companies isn’t about building a new system for energy production, it’s about fixing the system that’s already in place.  Hofmeister shares his wealth of expert knowledge and provides some simple solutions to help America achieve the goal of generating affordable energy in a clean, environmentally-friendly manner.

Former President of Shell Oil Shares Solutions for Affordable Energy


John Hofmeister, former President of the Shell Oil Company, has passionately devoted himself to informing his fellow Americans that the nation is capable of producing more than enough energy.  He has founded and serves as the CEO of the non-profit organization Citizens for Affordable Energy and has written a book entitled Why We Hate the Oil Companies:  Straight Talk From an Energy Insider (Palgrave MacMillan, 2010).

Concerned about the economic problems caused by the high prices of oil and stating that America is mortgaging its future by not taking advantage of its own resources, Hofmeister states that America can produce affordable energy that can be generated in an environmentally-friendly manner.  Outlining some basic principles he calls The Four Mores, he provides solutions that can reverse the course of the country’s struggle to keep up with the growing demands for energy by using:

The compelling message Hofmeister is sharing in his book doesn’t involve developing entirely new systems, but rather stresses that changes can be made in the energy-generating systems that are already in use.  Hofmeister believes that embracing these strategies will keep America from sliding into what he calls “The Energy Abyss”.
