Fracking myths and climate capitalism


Worried about high oil prices and exploding nuclear plants? Carry on shoppers, because we've found gold right under our feet - a bonanza of natural gas. Yes, fracking will fill your tank, heat your house, and light up the streets for another 100 years. At least that's what we've been told.

A new report out from the Post Carbon Institute pokes a sharp pin in the natural gas bubble. We'll hear from energy analyst David Hughes.

And in the second part of the program - a new book "Climate Capitalism" might make you mad, or make you think. It's a new recording, for a new book by Hunter Lovins and Professor Boyd Cohen. Scroll way down for that one, but it's worth the trip.
