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

Добавить в корзину
The promise of ?green jobsa?? and a ?clean energy futurea?? 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.Fueling our society requires more than sentiment and rhetoric; we need to make good decisions and smart investments based on facts. In Power Hungry, Bryce provides a supertanker-load of footnoted facts while shepherding readers through basic physics and math. And with the help of a panoply of vivid graphics and tables, he crushes a phalanx of energy myths, showing why renewables are not green, carbon capture and sequestration wona??t work, and even?surprise!?that the U.S. is leading the world in energy efficiency. He also charts the amazing growth of the fuels of the future: natural gas and nuclear.Power Hungry delivers a clear-eyed view of what America has ?in the tank,a?? and whata??s needed to transform the gargantuan global energy sector.
