Summary expansion
  • <div>The promise of "green jobs" and a "clean energy future" has roused the masses. But as Robert Bryce makes clear in this provocative book, that vision needs a major re-vision. We cannot--and will not--quit using carbon-based fuels at any time in the near future for a simple reason: they provide the horsepower that we crave. The hard reality is that oil, coal, and natural gas are here to stay.<p>Fueling our society requires that we make good decisions and smart investments based on facts. In <i>Power Hungry</i>, Bryce crushes a phalanx of energy myths, showing why renewables are not green, carbon capture and sequestration won't work, and even--surprise!--that the U.S. is leading the world in energy efficiency. <i>Power Hungry</i> delivers a clear-eyed view of what's needed to transform the gargantuan global energy sector.</p></div>
