In his new book, Power Hungry: The Myths of "Green" Energy and the Real Fuels of the Future (PublicAffairs, 2010), Robert Bryce, managing editor of Energy Tribune and a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, takes on claims that renewable energy and 'green' technologies will save America from an energy-impoverished future. Bryce argues that nuclear power and natural gas offer the most serious practical options for meeting America's future energy needs. Along the way, Bryce questions the premise of energy independence, and exposes how most "renewable" energy sources represent energy sprawl because of the large amounts of land and additional infrastructure that they require. The Wall Street Journal offered the pun that Bryce "speaks truth to power." Responding to Bryce at this event were AEI resident scholar Kenneth P. Green and Steven F. Hayward, the F. K. Weyerhaeuser Fellow at AEI.
