Texas Tech Law hosts Terry Lee Grantham Memorial Energy Law Lecture Speaker

May 2019


Robert Bryce was the featured speaker for the Terry Lee Grantham Memorial Energy Law Lecture Series on Monday, April 1, 2019. Bryce focused in his presentation.

The lecture focused on electricity and alternate forms of energy including Bryce’s new documentary, Juice: How Electricity Explains the World. He explained why looking at the world through the lens of electricity allows us to see issues like climate change, womens’ rights, and poverty in a new light. In addition, Bryce argued that solar and wind energy cannot meet soaring global energy demand, discussed the future of hydrocarbons and nuclear energy, and explained why he remains incurably optimistic about the future.

Bryce has been writing professionally about energy for three decades. He is the author of five books, including most recently, Smaller Faster Lighter Denser Cheaper: How Innovation Keeps Proving the Catastrophists Wrong. A senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, he has published articles in dozens of publications including the Wall Street Journal, National Review, New York Times and Sydney Morning Herald.

Bryce has given over 200 invited and keynote lectures to groups of all kinds, ranging from the Marine Corps War College to the Sydney Institute. He has also appeared on numerous television and radio programs, ranging from PBS and NPR to Fox News and Al Jazeera.
