Episode Summary

EDIT
For decades Presidents have been trying to get America off oil. Why hasn't it happened? What will it take? Executive Editor Margaret Ryan takes a historical look at the country's oil use, and talks to a soccer mom who wishes she could be green and still have a big car at the same time. Phil Sharp, President of Resources for the Future, discusses his think-tank's new report on oil alternatives, and gives suggestions on how the country can break its foreign oil dependence - but one recommendation may not be what drivers want to hear. The International Energy Agency says an energy revolution is underway. Nobuo Tanaka, IEA's executive director, lays out what his organization says is needed to turn the world to cleaner energy. Linking property taxes to home energy effeciency. Some lawmakers are hoping to make this a national push - but the country's largest lender says it has no interest in low-interest loans to help homeowners go green. Lee Patrick Sullivan delves into the PACE bill. Finally, a bumpy ride for customers at one Washington, DC hotel is isn't just a nuisance, it's an energy maker as well.moreless
