This Sunday Robert Bryce, author of Gusher of Lies, will be speaking at Book People. I've heard Robert Bryce speak before in my government class last semester and on the radio this morning. I was disappointed by some of his statements, mainly about peak oil. In my class he told us that the US does not have to worry about peak oil because we are rich enough to secure all of the petroleum we need.
I think the Book People talk would be an interesting event to attend to see some different opinions about the state of energy in our country. The talk is at 3 PM. You can see more information on this website.
