Gusher of Lies: The Dangerous Delusions of "Energy Independence": The Dangerous Delusions of Energy Independence

Gusher of Lies: The Dangerous Delusions of "Energy Independence" - Robert Bryce I read the first ~150/200 pages of this book before we moved and I had to return it to the library, but even that much was enough to completely change the way I view the global energy situation and the popular quest for "energy independence." Especially during elections when it seems every candidate has a plan for energy independence, this book is an eye-opener. It has solid factual evidence (as well as a lot of interesting speculation and analysis) on the current energy situation and why energy independence is essentially an impossible, and possibly undesirable, goal in the near future (50/60 years).
