In the face of today’s environmental and economic challenges, some doomsayers preach that the only way to stave off disaster is for humans to reverse course: to de-industrialize, re-localize and ban the use of modern energy sources. Bryce offers a different point of view. He argues that innovation and the inexorable human desire to make things smaller, faster, lighter, denser and cheaper is providing consumers with cheaper and more abundant energy, faster computing, lighter vehicles, unprecedented prosperity, greater liberty and better environmental protection.
