Description

The sheer volume of talk about energy, energy prices, and energy policy on both sides of the political aisle suggests that we must know something about energy. But according to Peter Huber and Mark Mills, the things we “know” are mostly myths. In The Bottomless Well , Huber and Mills debunk the myths and show how a better understanding of energy will radically change our views and policies on a number of very controversial issues. They explain why demand will never go down, why most of what we think of as “energy waste” actually benefits us; why greater efficiency will never lead to energy conservation; and why the energy supply is infinite-it’s quality of energy that’s scarce and expensive. The Bottomless Well will also revolutionize our thinking about the automotive industry (gas prices don’t matter and the hybrid engine is irrelevant), coal and uranium, the much-maligned power grid (it’s the worst system we could have except for all the others), what energy supplies mean for jobs and GDP, and many other hotly debated subjects.
