Today on Your Call: Could the US stop using oil and coal by 2050?


On today's Your Call, we'll talk to physicist and environmentalist Amory Lovins about his plan to get the US off oil and coal by 2050.  While President Obama talks about an “all of the above” energy strategy, Lovins says we can end our dependence on oil and coal without passing legislation in Washington.  We'll talk to Amory Lovins about his plan and find out what it would mean for you.  Can technology and market-based solutions get us off the dirtiest fossil fuels?  It’s Your Call, Matt Martin, and you.

US power grid

Today on Your Call: How does the electrical grid work in the US?

On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about the US electric grid.  Recently, a power failure cut electricity to approximately 670 million people across Northern India.  Could the United States be susceptible to such a widespread outage?  How is our system structured?  What are its strengths and weaknesses?  How are we shifting to a more sustainable grid for our future power needs?  Join us at 10am PST or post a comment here.  Is our current system preventing a real shift to renewables?  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
