Maggie Koerth-Baker examines the current and future state of energy issues in the United States. The author reports that there is no one answer to the future of energy infrastructure and that a more energy efficient world will not be a utopia but will be better than if no action is taken. She posits that the same economically driven thinking that created the country’s current energy issues would be the force behind the changes in production and consumption over the next twenty to forty years. She responded to questions from members of the audience at Barnes & Noble in El Cerrito, California. close
