Powering the Future
We all hear a lot of talk about energy - not the kind you use up by jogging on a treadmill, more the kind that we generate via the use of fossil fuels, nuclear reactors, wind turbines, etc., etc. We also all hear a lot of talk about what tomorrow will look like in terms of energy and energy production. Are we going to utilize more solar power? Hydroelectric? Nuclear? Coal? The goal of this four-part series (tonight we get parts three and four) is to separate fact from fiction and to see how much energy we're going to need and where exactly we might get it from.
