Gasolinegate Early Praise Quotes

If Woodward and Bernstein revealed the machinations behind the Watergate break-in, Burl Haigwood and Doug Durante have taken away our rose-colored glasses in regard to the adverse real world economic, environmental and political consequences of reliance on polluting petro fuels.

Gasolinegate delivers the truth and nothing but truth. It exposes how EPA has let down the people they were created to protect, while succumbing to the will of BIG OIL and environmentalist.

~ Plinio Nastari, President, DATAGRO Group & IBIO Brazilian Institute of Bioenergy & Bioeconomy.

Years before The Auto Channel and I jumped into the ethanol vs. gasoline fray, Doug Durante and Burl Haigwood were doing the heavy lifting to try to make America and the world a healthier and safer place. Gasolinegate provides extensive and significant background in understanding what should have happened and why it didn’t. I consider this to be essential reading.

~ Marc J. Rauch, Author, The Ethanol Papers and Yes, Tin Lizzie Was an Alcoholic, Co-Publisher The Auto Channel

This book is a long overdue wakeup call that alerts Americans to the invisible, pervasive, and extremely lethal nanoparticles they and their children are forced to breathe in on a 24/7 basis, with no means of escape. In fact, contrary to EPA’s assurances, modern advanced engine designs make these lethal emissions even worse unless the compounds are replaced. Doug and Burl provide a roadmap for how to put an end to the enormous social and economic damages imposed by gasoline Benzene compounds.

~ David E. Hallberg, President, Dakota AG Energy, LLC, Founder and former CEO, Renewable Fuels Association.
