The Energy Non-Crisis by Lindsey Williams
Lindsay Williams
About the Author
Lindsey Williams, who has been an ordainedBaptist minister for 28 years, went to Alaska in1971 as a missionary. The Transalaska oilpipeline began its construction phase in 1974,and because of Mr. Williams' love for his countryand concern for the spiritual welfare of the"pipeliners," he volunteered to serve as Chaplainon the pipeline, with the subsequent full supportof the Alyeska Pipeline Company.Because of the executive status accorded to himas Chaplain, he was given access to theinformation that is documented in this book.After numerous public speaking engagements inthe western states, certain government officialsand concerned individuals urged Mr. Williams toput into print what he saw and heard, stating thatthey felt this information was vital to nationalsecurity. Mr. Williams firmly believes thatwhoever controls energy controls the economy.Thus, The Energy Non-Crisis.Because of the outstanding public response thathas been generated by this book, LindseyWilliams is in great demand for speakingengagements, radio, and TV shows.(Addition to the fourth printing of the secondedition.)
Please keep in mind when you read this eye-opening book that BAPTIST John D. RockefellerBOUGHT the U.S. government after theSupreme Court decision to outlaw his monopolyin 1911.
The content of this manuscript is only as valuable and useful to the reader asthe credibility of the authors.The honesty, integrity, and therefore the credibility, of the authors of this bookis unquestionable to the limit of their combined facts and knowledge.
I can personally attest to many of the facts, and certainly many of theconversations quoted in the book, as I spent a week with Chaplain Lindsey onthe North Slope of Alaska during the construction of the Trans-Alaskapipeline. I was privileged to talk with high officials of Alyeska Pipeline ServiceCompany. For reasons unknown to me, I was given access to privateinformation that apparently very few outsiders were ever given. I movedamong the men at work and in the baracks. My week on the North Slope wasa liberal education.The motivation for this book is to bring facts to the American people as theauthors know them. They do not have a political ax to grind nor any personaladvantage by bringing forth these facts.Our President has stated that ourenergy problem is the equivalent of war. Yet he has embraced policies thathave continually discouraged and hampered the development of our oilindustry.Nearly ten years ago President Nixon warned of a pending energy shortageunless our domestic production be drastically increased, but Congressinsisted on restrictive price controls.
Congress has been urged—and sometimes threatened—by special interestgroups to take a negative stance on energy production, but they havemiserably failed to take proper action to increase our domestic production. Infact, as you read this book you must come to the realization that energyproduction has been fiercely stifled by "Government Bureaucracy, " andCongress has sat on its collective hands.
You, the reader, will be left to make your own conclusions as to why this set offacts and circumstances conflict many times with what we have been told bythe news media—which is fed its information by Government Agencies andDepartments.
It is with great pride and pleasure that I endorse this manuscript andcompliment the authors for taking time to do the research and make itavailable to all of us.

Hugh M. Chance
Former Senator ofThe State of Colorado
The Great Oil Deception
There is no true energy crisis. There never has been an energy crisis . . .except as it has been produced by the Federal government for the purpose of controlling the American people 
. That's a rather dramatic statement. to make,isn't it? But you see, at one time I too thought there was an energy crisis. Afterall, that was what I had been told by the news media and by the Federalgovernment. I thought we were running out of crude oil and natural gas. ThenI heard, I saw, and I experienced what I am about to write. I soon came torealize that there is no energy crisis. There is no need for America to go coldor for gas to be rationed. We shall verify these statements as we provide thefacts for you. You might be surprised to find that we will also show why theprice of gas will remain high, and in fact will go higher than it is now.
You've read about the controversy. You've heard the statements, the claims,the counterclaims. You've read about the problems of environmentalprotection, such as the need to protect birds whose species are becomingextinct. What you haven't heard is that $2 million dollars was spent to goaround the nest of one species. On your property, you'd have moved thenest—not so on the Alaska Pipeline. Not true? Questionable? We'll give youthe facts.You've read about the objections of the native Alaskans whose territory isbeing exploited by those giant corporations that can never be satisfied. You'veheard about the excessive profits made by the oil companies. But you haven'theard about the incredible regulations that forced the costs of the Trans-Alaska oil pipeline up from a projected $2 billion dollars to beyond $12 billiondollars. We'll tell you more about that.
I became convinced of the fact that there is no energy crisis when SenatorHugh Chance visited me on the Pipeline. As well as being a former Senator ofthe State of Colorado, he is also an outstanding Christian gentleman. Hecame to the Pipeline at my invitation, to speak in the work camps for which Iwas responsible as Chaplain, on the northern sector of the Trans-Alaska OilPipeline.
While I was there I arranged for him to have a tour of the Prudhoe Bay facility.Senator Chance was shown everything he wanted to see, and he was toldeverything he wanted to know. The Senator was given information by anumber of highly-placed responsible executives with Atlantic Richfield, andthese were cooperative with him at all times. He especially gained informationfrom one particular official whom we shall call Mr. X, because of the obviousneed to protect his anonymity.
After Senator Chance had talked at length with Mr. X, we came back to mydormitory room at Pump Station No. 1 and sat down. Senator Chance said tome, "Lindsey, I can hardly believe what I have seen and heard today."
