Episode Summary

EDIT
The International Energy Agency says China is now the world's hungriest energy consumer. Last year (for the first time ever) China used more energy than any other country. The IEA says China devoured 2,252 million tons of "oil equivalent" last year, about 4% more than the US. Clean Skies Tyler Suiters talks with Fatih Birol, Chief Economist at the International Energy Agency. As Chinese and American appetites for all kinds of energy grow, an international meeting here in Washington last week focused more on "cooperation" than "competition".The first-ever Clean Energy Ministerial ended with 10 agreements among two-dozen governments, partnerships designed to reduce energy waste and "rev-up" clean technology research. Clean Skies Tyler Suiters reports. President Obama wants us to transition to what he calls "a clean energy economy", generating both more energy and more American jobs.According to Assistant Energy Secretary David Sandalow, the momentum for that move could come from "international" partnerships. Clean Skies Tyler Suiters talks with the veteran of both the Obama and Clinton Administrations about what the agreements mean here at home. The smart grid - it's supposed to bring us efficient energy - but consumer advocates warn the first step may just be higher bills.Maryland regulators say they'll look again at "smart meters" - as critics warn those meters will mean higher bills for many. Clean Skies Margaret Ryan reports. One country's obsession with "riding bicycles" has more to do with energy policy than health policy. Clean Skies Lee Patrick Sullivan travels to Copenhagen where 40% of the people are biking to work because of high energy taxes imposed by the government. World leaders are looking at Denmark's bikes as a way to solve traffic congestion, and limit CO2 emissions.moreless
