Jack Kerfoot is the principal of JL Kerfoot Energy Services, an energy consulting company and an author of the book “FUELING AMERICA, An Insider’s Journey.” His expertise in geophysics, geology, economics and risk analysis provided him the opportunity to work with large, multinational corporations and small, dynamic companies around the world. He is an advocate for renewable energy and blogs at “Our Energy Conundrum” at www.jackkerfoot.com
“Fueling America” is an insider’s perspective of the real oil industry – high stakes gambles to find new reserves, corruption, oil price volatility, fraud, technical blunders, spectacular successes and gut wrenching failures. Jack shares his first hand experiences with wildcatters, scientists, doodlebuggers, bureaucrats, ministers, sheikhs, tycoons and potentates in his travels around the world.
At the end of every chapter, Jack steps back and explains the major developments in America’s energy industry – coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear energy, hydropower, wind and solar. He explains the rise and fall in demand for coal and nuclear energy and the dramatic rise in wind and solar. Jack concludes “Fueling America” by presenting compelling evidence why America should aggressively move from fossil fuels to renewable energy.
