Confronting Peak Oil: Building a Sustainable Future

As we approach the end of the age of oil, and the reality of the climate
crisis sinks in, more and more people are beginning to wake up to the fact
that we need to change our ways, and begin building sustainable energy
alternatives.  We'll spend the day exploring those alternatives - people and
projects who are working for change, places that have reduced their carbon

Was Oregon's economy in trouble even before the sub-prime meltdown? That's what new numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau say. Despite record-breaking economic expansion before the current downturn, most Oregonians' incomes have remained flat since 2000. Poverty and lack of health insurance or other problems that did not improve during the boom. What did Oregon leaders fail to do? How well are Oregonians equipped to face an economy that continues to falter? What strategy should our legislature and governor consider to turn things around? Jo Ann and Dave  talk with Mike Leachman, policy analyst with the Oregon Center for Public Policy about these and other questions.
