New Energy Secretary Issues Dire Warning on Global Warming

Hosted by

The Bush Administration took heat for downplaying the dangers of climate change. Although he's not a climatologist, President Obama's new Energy Secretary, Nobel laureate Steven Chu, directly acknowledged the severity of the problem in an interview with Jim Tankersley of the Chicago Tribune with one of the starkest predictions yet: no agriculture in California in less than 100 years.
