Episode Description:

This episode features an interview with leading atmospheric scientist Mark Z. Jacobson, director of the Atmosphere/Energy Program at Stanford University, who claims that it's possible to fill the world's energy needs by clean renewable sources such as wind, water and solar power alone, without having to use fossil fuels at all. Prof. Jacobson studies the physical and chemical processes of air pollution and global warming, and looks for ways to integrate clean energy sources into the power grid. He won the American Meteorological Society's Houghton Award for “significant contributions to modeling aerosol chemistry and to understanding the role of soot and other carbon particles on climate”, and almost 1000 researchers have used the mathematical models he's developed. His work has formed the scientific basis for proposed climate legislation in the U.S. and abroad, he's served on the Energy Efficiency and Renewables advisory committee to the U.S. Secretary of Energy, and has testified several times before the U.S. Congress. He says that the technology to convert to clean energy is already here, and the main obstacles to implementation are not technical, but social and political. Martin Wasserman hosts.
