Stossel on 'Green' Energy

I enjoyed John Stossel's piece outlining some of the views of Robert Bryce, author of "Power Hungry: The Myths of 'Green' Energy". An excerpt:
One nuclear power plant in Texas covers about 19 square miles, an area slightly smaller than Manhattan. To produce the same amount of power from wind turbines would require an area the size of Rhode Island. This is energy sprawl." To produce the same amount of energy with ethanol, another "green" fuel, it would take 24 Rhode Islands to grow enough corn.
