'Energy independence' might sound appealing, but as veteran energy reporter Robert Bryce shows in this smart and surprising book, it's neither achievable nor desirable. For more than three decades, politicians have been promising to make America energy independent, a self-sufficient. They reason that energy independence will mean a thriving economy, a positive balance of trade and a stronger, better country.Except it won't. Despite the rhetoric, which is coming from both Democrats and Republicans as well as from tree-hugging greens and war- mongering neo-cons, energy independence is neither doable nor desirable. In "Gusher of Lies", leading authority Robert Bryce debunks the idea that the US can free itself from foreign energy and why it will be importing oil, natural gas, coal, gasoline, uranium and other energy commodities for decades to come.This book exposes the ethanol scam for what it is: one of the longest-running robberies of taxpayers in US history. From nearly any standpoint - subsidies, food prices, air quality, water use or greenhouse gas emissions - ethanol is a losing proposition.The booming economy, combined with increasing energy demand from China, India and other developing countries, combined with increasing concern about the need to reduce C02 emission, have made the world ever more interdependent. "A Gusher of Lies" shows why America must drop the rhetoric of energy independence and embrace interdependence.
