Your Call: How much is the US investing in alternative clean energy sources?
On the June 2nd edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the United States’ energy landscape. According to the World Bank, 80 to 85 percent of the energy consumed in the US is from fossil fuels. What are the economic, social and environmental costs of our dependency on fossil fuel and what will it take to transition to renewable energy? What are real alternatives to oil? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
