Winning the Oil Endgame is a 2005 book by Amory B. Lovins, published by the Rocky Mountain Institute. It talks about four ways to reduce oil (petroleum) dependence in the United States:

  • Using oil more efficiently (pp. 29–102).
  • Substituting other liquids for oil (pp. 103–111).
  • Substituting saved natural gas for oil (pp. 111–122).
  • Replacing oil with hydrogen (pp. 228–242).

Problems and solutions[change | change source]

The authors suggest that oil dependence is a problem we need no longer have. U.S. oil dependence can be profitably eliminated by proven and attractive technologies. The authors argue that America can lead the world into the post-petroleum era and create a vibrant economy. (p.xiii)
