Episode Summary

Wind In Texas
As the United States attempts to utilize more renewable and clean energy, could the solution be in the windy landscapes of Texas? Investment in wind turbines has increased over the last few years, as deregulation and rising fuel costs are propelling the industry into big business. In Texas, where wind turbines are already powering over 180,000 homes, could more be done? The US harvests less than 1% of its energy from alternative energy sources. Areas which are lacking resources and have been depleted of fossil fuels are often ideal for wind farming, so are there other areas in America which could be ideal for renewable energy? Hear from T. Boone Pickens who is committed to reducing our dependency on foreign oil.moreless
