              By Beaubouef, Bruce A.

              The US Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) has become the nation's primary tool of energy policy. This book examines the interactions that have shaped the development of the SPR.

              Caught in the Net: The Conflict between Shrimpers and Conservationists
               

              Caught in the Net: The Conflict between Shrimpers and Conservationists (Hardback)

              By Margavio, Anthony V.; Forsyth, Craig J.

              In the summer and fall of 1989, hundreds of shrimpers captained their vessels into position to blockade the ports and waterways of the Gulf of Mexico. These shrimpers, challenging the required use of Turtle Excluder Devices (TEDS) to protect turtles from being caught in shrimp ne...ts, felt themselves caught in the net of government regulation. Their action, the largest protest over marine resources in the history of the United States, was only the most visible response to a highly charged conflict. National environmental groups, including the Center for Marine Conservation, had spearheaded a drive to protect sea turtles, which they believed were threatened by commercial fishing nets. Their efforts resulted in the federal government's requirement that shrimpers use TEDS, devices designed to greatly reduce turtle bycatch. In the ensuing conflict, alliances were complex. State governments divided in their responses, with Florida quickly implementing the regulations and Louisiana suing to block them. Local chapters of the very environmental groups that had led the fight for TEDS remained strangely quiet. Government agencies went head to head with the groups they were supposed to support. This gripping tale, based on extensive interviews with the participants, highlights the modern ambiguities and tensions between environmental protection and those who make their livings from - and base their way of life on - what the environment offers. Hundreds of shrimpers, policymakers, researchers, and others connected with the shrimping industry told the authors their particular truths in the conflict. The result is not only the dramatic story of an episode of environmental-economic conflict but also atrenchant analysis of the complexities of change and tradition as America's coasts are transformed from farming and fishing villages into other kinds of communities with other agendas.

              Oilfield Trash: Life and Labor in the Oil Patch
               

              Oilfield Trash: Life and Labor in the Oil Patch (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Weaver, Bobby D.

              When the first gusher blew in at Spindletop, near Beaumont, Texas, in 1901, petroleum began to supplant cotton and cattle as the economic engine of the state and region. Very soon, much of the workforce migrated from the cotton field to the oilfield, following the lure of the wea...lth being created by black gold. The early decades of the twentieth century witnessed the development of an oilfield culture, as these workers defined and solidified their position within the region's social fabric. Over time, the work force grew more professionalized, and technological change attracted a different type of labourer. Bobby D. Weaver grew up and worked in the oil patch. Now, drawing on oral histories supplemented and confirmed by other research, he tells the colourful stories of the workers who actually brought oil wealth to Texas. Drillers, shooters, toolies, pipeliners, teamsters, roustabouts, tank builders, roughnecks . . . each of them played a role in the frenzied, hard-driving lifestyle of the boomtowns that sprouted overnight in association with each major oil discovery. Weaver tracks the differences between company workers and contract workers. He details the work itself and the ethos that surrounds it. He highlights the similarities and differences from one field to another and traces changing aspects of the work over time. Above all, Oilfield Trash captures the unique voices of the labouring people who worked long, hard hours, often risking life and limb to keep the drilling rigs "turning to the right".
