Blue Highways: Energy Frontiers - Airs Aug. 4
This on-the-road magazine special looks at our sources of energy — present and future — beginning with our Virginia producer who traces her household electricity to its source, a mountaintop removal coal mining operation. Then we head to Alaska to look at two controversial projects - a proposed miniature nuclear power plant and a land swap that some call the "back-door to ANWR." Finally, it's off to southern New Mexico to visit the fully-off grid and nearly fossil fuel free Funky Butte Ranch. Listen in to our Aug. 4 show, which airs at 7 p.m. on KFAI.
