Overview

Energy Keepers Energy Killers: The New Civil Right Battle exposes the wrongs done to the poor and minorities by environmental and political elites trying to eradicate fossil fuel production - coal, oil, and gas - supposedly to save the world from global warming. Author Roy Innis, national chairman of the Congress of Racial Equality, shows how their wrongheaded policies price energy out of reach and violate the civil rights of all Americans, but hurt the poor and minorities worst. Innis demands an end to this energy racism and calls for the opening of all federal lands - which belong to the disadvantaged as much as to well-funded environmental leaders - to more energy production in a sustained campaign to increase supply and lower prices. Innis reveals the flaws in global warming hysteria and makes the stunning fact clear in his Energy Reality chart that so-called alternative energy from wind and solar power actually provided less than one-half of one percent of America's energy needs in 2006.
