Power Hungry: The Myths of “Green” Energy and the Real Fuels of the Future

Tuesday May 2010


Robert Bryce Senior Fellow, Manhattan Institute

Americans are being inundated with hype about the promise of “green” energy. But some politically popular sources of energy, like wind, cannot provide power on the scale that the world demands. In his latest book Power Hungry, Manhattan Institute senior fellow Robert Bryce debunks a number of energy myths, including the claim that we use too much oil and that wind energy cuts CO2 emissions. On the positive side of the ledger, Bryce explains how the United States can lead the global transition to a cleaner, lower carbon future—a future that can be summarized as N2N: natural gas to nuclear.
