Fueling 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.

The hard reality is that oil, coal, and natural gas are here to stay.
