This book presents an unblinking look at the health, environmental, and national security costs hidden in every barrel of oil. "Lives Per Gallon" is a searing indictment of America's oil economy and a powerful prescription for change. With tales of corporations knowingly exposing citizens to poisonous chemicals, conspiring to derail public transportation, and purposely disabling their own pollution controls, Terry Tamminen builds a powerful case against powerful industries. And he shows how demanding accountability could help pave the road to sustainable energy. Offering real-world solutions, Tamminen poses a vital challenge: kick the oil habit or continue paying in lives per gallon.
