This two-part, two-hour documentary series thoughtfully considers the trade-offs of carbon capture and storage, hydraulic fracturing for natural?gas, a nuclear renaissance, the costs of solar power, the sprawl of wind power and the feasibility of a super grid.
Beyond the Light Switch is hosted by David Biello, energy and environment editor at Scientific American. Winner of the 2009 Earth Journalism Award, David has been reporting on energy and the environment since 1999.
In Beyond the Light Switch, David acts as our tour guide while examining the knot of political, social, technological and environmental issues he encounters while confronting the many uncertainties of America's energy future.
Comprehensive and timely, Beyond the Light Switch will add a much needed balanced perspective to a national energy debate that will surely become more heated and more critical than anything since the battle over health care reform.
