John Farrell on Local Energy Self Reliance with Bill Resnick

program date: 
Mon, 01/28/2013

Bill Resnick talks with John Farrell of the Institute for Local Self Reliance about local control of energy, the value of democratic control and participatory society, and how the economics of energy has changed in recent years to make this more feasible as well, especially given the increasing costs of transporting energy long distances. They note that Boulder, CO in 2011 voted to form a municipal utility and Minneapolis, MN is currently considering the same possibility, and they consider a variety of programs for clean contracts or feed-in tariffs.

Just back away from the coal, oil and gas.

After decades of inaction, we are now rapidly losing the window in which we can act to prevent catastrophic climate change. Yet with all the continued global fossil fuel development underway, it would appear that the involved governments and private companies couldn't care less.  How about you?

Short Description: 
What can progressives expect -- or hope for -- from Obama's 2nd term?

 President Obama was inaugurated for the second time yesterday, cementing what will certainly be remembered as one of the more unlikely personal stories in American history. For progressives, though, the Obama presidency has been a mixed bag at best.

What can we expect from his second term? Without the pressure of re-election bearing upon him, will we see a bolder Obama? Will we see meaningful action on climate change? On gun violence? Will we at long last see the next New Deal we've been hoping for? Join Abe and Joe as they look forward at the next four years.
