Another contrarian assessment of America's energy situation--and the gulf between the goals of the green movement and our vast need for power--by the author of Gusher of Lies. Armed with fully footnoted facts and revealing graphics, Bryce explains why most of the hype about renewable energy and qgreenq technology is just that--hype.

He negates the notion that the US wastes huge amounts of energy. Indeed, the facts show that over the past three decades the US has been among the world's best at reducing its energy intensity, carbon intensity, and per-capita energy use. He goes on to skewer electric cars, T.
