Talk of the Nation, Science Friday with Ira Flatow
NPR, January 11, 2008

Environmentalist Lester Brown has a plan to save the planet from climate change — but it’s not going to be easy or planb_200cheap.
In his new book, Plan B 3.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization, Brown calls for a carbon tax and more gasoline taxes to help keep looming environmental crises at bay.

Listen to Brown talk about making plans that direct us away from a fossil fuel driven economy, the importance of water in the new economy, the rate of growth of alternative energies (particularly wind) compared to coal, and the need for an national electrical grid analogous to the Interstates that Eisenhower built in the 1950s.
