BOOKS BY DAN DICKER
TURNING OIL GREEN
A Market-Based Path to Renewables
Dan’s most recent book, “Turning Oil Green”, published in October 2020, has received excellent reviews by Kirkus Reviews and Amazon readers alike.
Dan Dicker, a lifetime observer and expert on energy markets examines the roadblocks to what should be an easy and ‘natural’ transition from oil and natural gas to solar, wind and other sustainable energy sources. In “Turning Oil Green”, Dicker outlines the missteps from OPEC, energy companies, Wall Street, Washington and the environmental lobby that have turned the path towards renewable energy into a ‘circular firing squad’ where everyone, from consumers to investors to our planet itself have come away without the goals they seek.
