I know, I know, it's election day, but we don't know the outcome yet, so let's talk about the consequences behind green energy. Joining us is environmental consultant Steve Milloy (junkscience.com), founder and publisher of JunkScience.com. He looks at the realities of eliminating fossil fuels and going with green energy. Some of the metals used in green energy are mined by children in horrible conditions. The technology is very expensive and itself cannot survive without fossil fuels. So we have to be smart about how we approach this and think of the consequences before moving forward. Sound environmentalism has to be based on sound science and sound economics.
