IN THIS SUMMARY

Americans have been led to believe that to decrease their dependency on fossil fuels and stave off climate change, they must transition to green energy: wind, solar, and biofuels. In his book Power Hungry, Robert Bryce disagrees, arguing that renewable resources are too expensive, too inefficient, and not available on a scale that can meet the energy needs of industrialized societies. Instead, the U.S. should adopt an energy policy that focuses on exploiting the vast quantities of natural gas available beneath American soil while setting as a long-term goal the construction of more nuclear power plants.
