Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Technology, engineering, agriculture

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. fuelling our society requires that we make good decisions and smart investments based on facts. In Power Hungry , 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. Power Hungry delivers a clear-eyed view of what's needed to transform the gargantuan global energy sector.
