Interview with Michael Graetz of Yale

Check out this interview if you have a few minutes to spare.

This is an excerpt from an interview with Professor Michael Graetz of Columbia and Yale Law Schools discussing his new book, The End of Energy. The book chronicles 4 decades of failure on the part of our leaders to successfully address the nation’s energy issues. Rather than pushing policies that, over time, would produce the changes we need, we have searched for silver bullets and directed huge subsidies and tax breaks to favored constituents and contributors.

We have never been asked to pay a price that reflects the real cost of the energy we consume, and until we face the facts about price, our energy incompetence will continue—and, says Graetz, along with it the unraveling of our environment, security, and independence.
