Fueling Our Future

Are there alternatives to the prospect of soaring gas prices and rising heating oil costs? Can we afford them? Can we live with them? Moderator Frank Sesno assumes the role of President in the hypothetical scenario and describes what his new administration is facing -- a grim energy crisis. He presses the panelists whom he convenes as his cabinet and trusted advisors to assess the consequences of soaring fuel costs for home-owners, agriculture, Wall Street and national security. The panelists struggle with the realities of the situation, looking into alternative sources of energy, their pros and cons and what the President can present to a dubious American public as viable solutions.
