Power Hungry Lecture Tonight at Galveston College
Galveston College’s 2010-2011 Lecture Series titled "Sustainability and Energy Conservation on the Texas Gulf Coast" continues with its third lecture at 7 p.m. tonight, March 21, 2011 in Cheney Student Center Seibel Wing located on the college campus at 39th Street and Avenue Q. The third guest speaker is Author/Journalist Robert Bryce whose topic is “Power Hungry: the Myths of ‘Green Energy’ and the Real Fuels of the Future.”
Robert Bryce has been writing about the energy sector for more than two decades. His articles have appeared in numerous publications including the Wall Street Journal, Counterpunch, The Economist, and New York Times.
Bryce is the author of four acclaimed books on the energy sector, the most recent of which, Power Hungry: The Myths of “Green” Energy and the Real Fuels of the Future, was published in April 2010. A review in the Wall Street Journal called the book “unsentimental, unsparing and impassioned; and, if you'll excuse the pun, it is precisely the kind of journalism we need to hold truth to power.”
Bryce is a senior fellow at the Center for Energy Policy and the Environment at the Manhattan Institute. An apiarist, he lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife, Lorin, and their three children, Mary, Michael, and Jacob.
