How Do Energy and the Environment Intersect?

Hosted by
With chronic rolling blackouts that have failed to materialize, how do Californians feel today about the energy crisis? A new poll indicates that they're more worried about the energy crisis than anything else, but skeptical about the efforts of elected politicians to solve it. Even more surprising is that people care so much about the environment that they'll pay more to protect it. We speak with a pollster, a conservationist, and a spokesman for California business about how issues of energy and the environment intersect, and how far Californians are willing to go to keep the lights on without harming the environment.
