The promise of "green jobs" and a "clean energy future" has roused the masses. But as Robert Bryce makes clear in this provocative book, that vision needs a major re-vision. We cannot--and will not--quit using carbon-based fuels at any time in the near future for a simple reason: they provide the horsepower that we crave. The hard reality is that oil, coal, and natural gas are here to stay. Fueling our society requires that we make good decisions and smart investments based on facts. In Power Hungry, Bryce crushes a phalanx of energy myths, showing why renewables are not green, carbon capture and sequestration won't work, and even--surprise!--that the U.S. is leading the world in energy efficiency. Power Hungry delivers a clear-eyed view of what's needed to transform the gargantuan global energy sector.

The must-read summary of Robert Bryce's book: “Power Hungry: The Myths of “Green” Energy and the Real Fuels of the Future”. This complete summary of "Power Hungry" by Robert Bryce, a prominent American journalist, presents his argument that green energy in the US is a myth, as renewables are not in fact particularly green, and carbon capture and sequestration is unlikely to ever work. He states that the only feasible and workable energy strategy for the US would have to be to built on harnessing natural gas and nuclear power to generate electricity, which he believes are the real fuels of the future. Added-value of this summary: • Save time • Understand the energy sector in America and globally • Expand your knowledge of American politics and culture To learn more, read "Power Hungry" and discover how the renewable energy sector may not be as promising as it seems, and what some realistic alternatives may be.

The Leadership Paradox

What is the key to effective leadership?The ability to organize and take charge? The ability to preach and teach? Entrepreneurial skill? A charismatic personality? According to Jesus, none of the above. Jesus is unarguably the greatest leader the world has ever seen. His three years of public ministry in an obscure and troublesome corner of the Roman Empire not only irrevocably changed Roman civilization, but every other civilization that has subsequently emerged. Yet, remarkably, Jesus spoke very little about leadership and even less about how to attain it.Perhaps that is why many of today's corporate-driven churches prefer to draw upon the leadership styles of Moses, David, Nehemiah, or Paul. Denny Gunderson challenges us to think again.This refreshingly candid book draws us to the Master's side. From this vantage point, we observe Jesus through the eyes of people who experienced him firsthand. And through their eyes we discover surprising insights that will challenge us to rethink our leadership stereotypes. This book is part of our Discipleship Essentials series. Pages: 199 (paperback)

We are in a power crunch and you need help. It is not going to go away. Fuel costs, population increases, or the need to reduce air pollution will all keep us in a power hungry situation. Either we cannot afford it, can no longer breathe it, or there will not be enough. The purpose of this book is to ease the problem. Better start learning now.Experience is the best teacher, but you need help before you can acquire experience on your own.Next best is to benefit from anotherżs experience. This book collects the relevant material from most of the authorsż over 50 books. They were written for people who want to help themselves. Does that include you?This book contains over 50 years of ways we have used to conserve energy. We started early: The message of energy shortages to come wasnżt widely publicized, although itżs coming was announced and published in the 1950's.We hope that rolling blackouts are the most with which we will have to cope. In todayżs culture, even that is a minor disaster. Electricity is the hinge upon which our lives swing. Most of us canżt even tell time without electricity, or when it comes back on, how do we reset the clocks? In fact, every floating automatic device in the house will need resetting.We depend upon electricity for all the niceties of living. What about the necessities?Food Preservation and SpoilageHeatLight- both to see and for securityWater-. No hot water without electricity. City and Rural water is supplied by electric pumps.Enjoy air conditioning? A hot tub, Hot water? These are things we can live without if we must, although there are energy efficient ways to have these things. Otherwise, either the cost of having them or the need to use a minimum of electricity may make them unavailable. Solar Energy will heat your home and provide hot water. It will even heat a hot tub.We use what is in this book ALL the time.

Organizations With Power Hungry Agents

We analyze a model of hierarchies in organizations where neither decisions themselves nor the delegation of decisions are contractible, and where power-hungry agents derive a private benefit from making decisions. Two distinct agency problems arise and interact: Subordinates take more biased decisions (which favors adding more hierarchical layers), but uninformed superiors may fail to delegate (which favors removing layers). A designer may remove intermediate layers of the hierarchy (eliminate middle managers) or de-integrate an organization by removing top layers (eliminate top managers). We show that stronger preferences for power result in smaller, more de-integrated hierarchies. Our key insight is that hoarding of decision rights is especially severe at the top of the hierarchy.

!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN" meta name="generator" content="HTML Tidy, see www.w3.org" Federalism is at once a set of institutions -- the division of public authority between two or more constitutionally defined orders of government -- and a set of ideas which underpin such institutions. As an idea, federalism points us to issues such as shared and divided sovereignty, multiple loyalties and identities, and governance through multi-level institutions. Seen in this more complex way, federalism is deeply relevant to a wide range of issues facing contemporary societies. Global forces -- economic and social -- are forcing a rethinking of the role of the central state, with power and authority diffusing both downwards to local and state institutions and upwards to supranational bodies. Economic restructuring is altering relationships within countries, as well as the relationships of countries with each other. At a societal level, the recent growth of ethnic and regional nationalisms -- most dramatically in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, but also in many other countries in western Europe and North America -- is forcing a rethinking of the relationship between state and nation, and of the meaning and content of 'citizenship.' Rethinking Federalism explores the power and relevance of federalism in the contemporary world, and provides a wide-ranging assessment of its strengths, weaknesses, and potential in a variety of contexts. Interdisciplinary in its approach, it brings together leading scholars from law, economics, sociology, and political science, many of whom draw on their own extensive involvement in the public policy process. Among the contributors, each writing with the authority of experience, are Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa and Jacques Pelkmans on the European Union, Paul Chartrand on Aboriginal rights, Samuel Beer on North American federalism, Alan Cairns on identity, and Vsevolod Vasiliev on citizenship after the breakup of the Soviet Union. The themes refracted through these different disciplines and political perspectives include nationalism, minority protection, representation, and economic integration. The message throughout this volume is that federalism is not enough -- rights protection and representation are also of fundamental importance in designing multi-level governments.
