Show 202 Gusher of Lies- The Dangerous Delusions of Energy Independence. Michael Medved talks to the author Robert Bryce about energy independence.
Synopsis- A surprising, irreverent, and scrupulously reported deconstruction of todays fashions in energy policy. Everybody is talking about energy independence. But is it really achievable? Is it actually even desirable? In this controversial, meticulously researched book, Robert Bryce exposes the false promises behind the rhetoric while blasting nearly everybody-Republicans, Democrats, environmentalists, and war-mongering neoconservatives-for misleading voters about our energy needs.
Gusher of Lies explains why the idea of energy independence appeals to voters while also showing that renewable sources like wind and solar cannot meet
Americas growing energy demand. Along the way, Bryce eviscerates the ethanol scam. Whether the issue is cost, water consumption, or food prices, corn ethanol is one of the longest-running robberies ever perpetrated on American taxpayers.
Consumers concerned about peak oil and the future of global energy supplies need to understand that energy security depends on embracing free markets and the realities of interdependence. Gusher of Lies is illuminating, vital reading.
Robert Bryce is one of America's foremost energy journalists. He is currently the managing editor of Energy Tribune and a contributing writer for the Texas Observer. The author of Pipe Dreams: Greed, Ego, and the Death of Enron and Cronies: Oil, the Bushes, and the Rise of Texas, America's Superstate, he lives in
Austin with his wife, Lorin, their three children, and a hyperactive bird dog named Biscuit.
