Tell Me About the Future
Nuclear power isn't safe. Oil and gas will run out — sooner, rather than later. Coal is, well, no solution either. Carbon, let's face it, is killing the planet. Realistically, we don't have much choice other than to move to renewable energy, but that move must be facilitated by government. If the federal government can't or won't act then state governments must intelligently develop practical innovations. Which, it turns out, it's politically possible for them to do. To talk about the future of energy policy I turned once again to Terry Tamminen, an environmental visionary who's doing a magnificent job of leading us out of the wilderness. Total runtime forty four minutes. Memores acti prudentes futuri.
