    Discussion #2

    Please read the following selections. Both can be accessed via Library Resources. Then answer the questions that follow in your discussion post.

    For this discussion, you should read the following:

    • Bryce, Robert. Power Hungry: The Myths of 'green' Energy and the Real Fuels of the Future. New York, NY: PublicAffairs, 2010. Print. (Chapters 1-3) (Library Resources)
    • Laughlin, Robert B. Powering the Future: How We Will (Eventually) Solve the Energy Crisis and Fuel the Civilization of Tomorrow. New York: Basic, 2011. Print. (Chapter 7) (Library Resources)

    After reading the two selections, answer the following questions in your discussion forum post:

    1. What does Bryce (Power Hungry), think of the use of biofuels?
    2. What does Laughlin (Powering the Future) think will be the best source of biofuel production and why?

    In your posts, make at least one point agreeing with the author and one point disagreeing with the author. After posting your response, please comment on at least one other person's response. Discussion grades will be based on content, not just that you completed the assignment.
