Before the Lights Go Out: Conquering the Energy Crisis Before It Conquers Us

An interview with Maggie Koerth-Baker author of Before the Lights Go Out: Conquering the Energy Crisis Before It Conquers Us.

Maggie writes "Back in April, I got to go on Minnesota Public Radio's "Bright Ideas" to talk about my book, Before the Lights Go Out. Now MPR has the entire hour-long interview up on video. You can watch the whole thing if you want. But, if you're short on time, I'd recommend the stretch from about minute 8:30 to 10:50. That's where I explain in more detail why systems—infrastructures—are so important and why we can't solve our energy problems without focusing on how choices and sources fit into those larger issues.
