This could be the best half hour you'll spend today.
There are two written stories--this one and the embedded one "unveiling a plan to boost the use of alternative energy." And there are two video clips, the introductory one is 8 minutes and the alt-energy plan is 14 minutes. Very worthwhile in my opinion, even for those who thoroughly understand the problem, because of the way he has simplified a very complex system into a simple story.
The biggest revelation here is that TBP has mounted a nationwide campaign to educate business leaders, politicians, and the public about the energy problem, and has made the first $10m buy for the TV advertising part. Stay tuned.
