The Absurdity of Energy Independance
In the face of today’s environmental and economic challenges, doomsayers preach that the only way to stave off disaster is for humans to reverse course: to de-industrialize, re-localize, ban the use of modern energy sources and forswear prosperity. In this provocative and optimistic speech based on his new book – which rebukes the catastrophists – Robert Bryce shows audiences how innovation and the inexorable human desire to make things Smaller Faster Lighter Denser Cheaper is providing consumers with Cheaper and more abundant energy, Faster computing, Lighter vehicles and myriad other goods. Ultimately, he explains how that same desire is fostering unprecedented prosperity, greater liberty and better environmental protection across multiple sectors.
