About the Program
Maggie Koerth-Baker examines the current and future state of energy issues in the United States. The author reports that there is no one answer to the future of energy infrastructure and that a more energy efficient world will not be a utopia but will be better than if no action is taken. She posits that the same economically driven thinking that created the country's current energy issues will be the force behind the changes in production and consumption over the next twenty to forty years. Maggie Koerth-Baker speaks at Barnes & Noble in El Cerrito, California.
