Innovation and Politics in this Hot, Flat and Crowded World

New York Times Columnist Thomas Friedman’s latest book, “Hot, Flat and Crowded,” looks at the imminent need to formulate a national strategy to combat climate change, stimulate technological innovation and grow America’s economy.

In this program, Tom talks to the New Yorker Magazine’s Elizabeth Kolbert about the need to transform America’s approach to energy and politics. The interview was initially published at Yale Environment 360.

We’ll also talk to Dave Unger of the Renewable Energy program at Waste Management about the need to expand landfill gas to energy projects around the U.S. With 1,200 MW of potential electrical generation capacity at landfills nation-wide, the company plans to expand its energy operations dramatically in the coming years.

Finally, we’ll have a special guest who’s celebrating Halloween by educating the neighborhood about renewable energy.
