Take this job and ship it : how corporate greed and brain-dead politics are selling out America by Byron L Dorgan( Book )
3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,181 libraries worldwide
How can we stem the tide of outsourcing? In this comprehensive look at the real, human toll of America's unsound trade policy, Senator Dorgan exposes the myth of "free trade." Indeed, free trade is not free; it is slowly but surely draining away American prosperity. Chinese labor can drive down prices at Wal-Mart; but at the same time, those saved wages--dollars that would have gone to buy these cheaper goods--are gone. Too soon, it will all come crashing down. Major U.S. corporations continue outsourcing jobs overseas and, because of their influence in Washington, avoid paying billions in taxes. Many dollars that these companies fleece from the American people go to investments in expanding production capabilities overseas. In short, our government is in the grip of corporate and foreign interests, and the American worker has born the brunt of this culture of corruption.--From publisher description

Gridlock by Byron L Dorgan( Book )
5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 680 libraries worldwide
Two Iranian agents hand over one million dollars to a Russian engineer for a thumbdrive. The drive contains a deadly computer virus that could shut down all electrical power in the United States at a keystroke. In rural North Dakota, a lineman is electrocuted, and the local cop sent to investigate is shot to death. As rolling electrical blackouts begin to shut down major US cities, the war for energy domination begins. Two nations are behind this deadly attack: Venezuela and Iran, intent on destroying the present world order and bringing an arrogant America to its knees. Their agent of terror is Yuri Makarov, a former Spetsnaz officer, the best of the best among the shadow world of killers for hire. When governments are powerless to stop such a man from sending the United States back to the horse-and-buggy era, North Dakota county sheriff Nate Osborne and brash journalist Ashley Borden once again step into the breach
Tomorrow's energy : hydrogen, fuel cells, and the prospects for a cleaner planet by Peter Hoffmann( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 568 libraries worldwide
In this book Peter Hoffmann describes current research toward a hydrogen-based economy. He presents the history of hydrogen energy and discusses the environmental dangers of continued dependence on fossil fuels. Hydrogen is not an energy source but a carrier that, like electricity, must be manufactured. Today hydrogen is manufactured by "decarbonizing" fossil fuels. In the future it will be derived from water and solar energy and perhaps from "cleaner" versions of nuclear energy. Because it can be made by a variety of methods, Hoffmann argues, it can be easily adapted by different countries and economies. Hoffmann acknowledges the social, political, and economic difficulties in replacing current energy systems with an entirely new one. Although the process of converting to a hydrogen-based economy would be complex, he demonstrates that the environmental and health benefits would far outweigh the costs

Blowout by Byron L Dorgan( file )
6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 51 libraries worldwide
America is on the brink of crisis. Unless we can curb our dangerous appetite for foreign oil, petroleum-rich countries and speculators will bring our economy to its knees, long before CO2 emissions will devastate our ecosystem. The President has answered the call with the Dakota District Initiative, a top secret research team hidden deep in the Badlands of North Dakota. The Initiative is developing a way to produce clean energy from coal. But powerful enemies will stop at nothing to sabotage this revolutionary technology. A cadre of oil hedge fund managers hires a crew of mercenary fanatics to attack the Initiative's experimental power station. Despite the bloody assault, the research continues as war-hero sheriff Nate Osborne and brash journalist Ashley Borden search for the attackers. Unless the Initiative succeeds we could be faced with gasoline at twenty dollars per gallon or more, putting an impossible strain on an already fragile economy
