Big Energy Gamble, The 1x57

The latest public opinion polls show that a vast majority of Americans believe the world is facing a global climate crisis.  They are willing to pay more for “cleaner energy”, and they want our government to take appropriate action to mitigate the crisis.  But, they don’t have a clue what those actions should be, or how the various proposed energy “solutions” can help.  NOVA shines the spotlight on California: an oasis of conservation in an energy-hungry country.  Does California know something about energy the rest of the nation does not?  The program will look at everything California is doing, from energy conservation and efficiency to the development of new sources of carbon-free power, to find out how the rest of the country can join in their aggressive pursuit of a sustainable energy future.
