On Energy...

As we get deeper into the 21st century, the need for alternative energy solutions has grown larger. Carbon emissions has a negative impact on our environment; dependence on oil is hurting the the economy. Bill Richardson, a former Secretary of Energy, fashions himself as the "energy president," with far-reaching proposals for how to make our country more energy-efficient. Among them: a cap-and-trade system for carbon emissions licenses, creation of a Secretary of Water position, and reducing America's oil demand by 50% by 2020 and increasing its alternative energy resources 50% by 2040. For these proposals, Governor Richardson has been widely recognized as the presidential candidate with the most ambitious, yet feasible energy plan.

Alex and Wyndam discuss the role of energy in our economy and more in this new video:
