New York Times columnist and author Tom Friedman exposes the irrationality of U.S. policies that promote consumption of vast quantities of oil. Friedman stresses that the United States must lead efforts to develop energy alternatives that would free us from our dependence on petro-dictatorships and help preserve the earth, oceans, and biodiversity. The program concludes with a Q&A between Friedman and Editor of The New Republic, Frank Foer.
