A THOUSAND BARRELS A SECOND The Coming Oil Break Point and the Challenges Facing an Energy Dependent World

by | Read by Dick Hill

Contemporary Culture • 4.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

The ominous and timely subject of oil consumption, particularly in the United States, makes this title both interesting and current. Dick Hill's narration has the tone of a high-quality 1950s radio announcer. His pronunciation is crisp and precise as he tells this tale of woe in which American dependence on foreign oil creates an increasing interest in the welfare of oil-producing countries. The situation has only gotten worse since this work’s first publication in 2006. Hill manages to make the dire predictions surrounding this mounting crisis more palpable with his even and measured delivery. One could almost be lulled by his rhythmic tone if it weren't for the alarming content of his words. M.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2008]
