Robert Bryce will be joining us to talk about IWT. His writing has appeared in dozens of publications including the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, National Review, Washington Post, American Conservative, The Nation, Counterpunch, and The Guardian. His first book, Pipe Dreams: Greed, Ego, and the Death of Enron, received rave reviews and was named one of the best non-fiction books of 2002 by Publishers Weekly. His second book, Cronies: Oil, the Bushes, and the Rise of Texas, America's Superstate, was published in 2004. His third book, Gusher of Lies: The Dangerous Delusions of "Energy Independence," published in March 2008, was favorably reviewed by more than 20 media outlets. A review of Gusher by William Grimes of the New York Times said that Bryce "reveals himself in the end as something of a visionary and perhaps even a revolutionary."
Bryce's latest book, Power Hungry: The Myths of "Green" Energy, and the Real Fuels of the Future, was published in 2010. In a review of Power Hungry in the Wall Street Journal, Trevor Butterworth 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 has appeared on dozens of TV and radio shows including the BBC, MSNBC, Fox, CNN's Inside Politics, PBS's The NewsHour With Jim Lehrer, NPR's Fresh Air, and Talk of the Nation.
The second half of the show, our expert roundtable will discuss the weekly headlines from Wind Watch.
