With the world in chaos and an uncertain path before us, it helps to talk to someone who has a vision for where we are heading. On today's podcast, we talk with two of them. First, author and online columnist James Kunstler (kunstler.com), is back with us. He is joined by print journalist and award-winning radio producer Mark Sommer. They offer their sometimes similar and other times distinctly different points of view about how to handle what's to come.
For today's round table discussion, both James and Mark look at alternative fuels, the future of the energy industry, and how politics affects our viewpoints. Idealism versus reality is explored as both guests do what many in this country refuse to – talk with someone who doesn't agree with them in an effort to find common ground.
