Smaller Faster Lighter Denser Cheaper

Mar 11, 2015

The conservative author and researcher Robert Bryce says the debate over climate change is a hyper-partisan slugfest. So when he talks about our energy future, he starts with this question: if we agree that too much carbon dioxide is bad for the Earth and for us, what do we do about it? In his latest book, Bryce says it’s not less consumption or alternative fuels that will save us. Bryce is in Utah and joins us to explain why he says entrepreneurship and innovation are the way to save ourselves and our world.

Robert Bryce is a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, a conservative think tank in New York. He's the author of five books including Power Hungry: The Myths of "Green" Energy and the Real Fuels of the Future [Indiebound|Amazon] and his most recent Smaller Faster Lighter Denser Cheaper: How Innovation Keeps Proving the Catastrophists Wrong [Amazon|Indiebound]

Robert Bryce is in town as a guest of the Energy & Geoscience Institute at the University of Utah. Wednesday, March 11 at 7:00 p.m., he'll speak at the Salt Lake City Public Library as part of EGI's "Bridging Science and Politics" series. His lecture is Scale, Shale & the Myths of "Green" Energy.
