Let’s Wean Ourselves Off Fossil Fuels Before We’re Forced to Go Cold Turkey

This is a talk by Lisa Margonelli, who is the Director of the New America Foundation Energy Policy Initiative. In it, she discusses the impossibility of achieving a green society without reducing our oil consumption.

Strategies she recommends for doing this include raising oil prices (an approach I’ve discussed on Batshite before) and putting a warning on the gas pump about the dangers of our fossil fuel addiction, similar to the Surgeon General’s warning on cigarettes.

To those who might be waiting for the next installment of “Captor Audience”: I’m sorry it’s late. I should get it up tomorrow.
