Today, everywhere you go, you hear people talking about “going green”, “being eco-friendly” and doing their part for the environment. When Al Gore’s documentary, An Inconvenient Truth hit theaters, people were up in arms. Schools, newspapers and celebrities raced to demonstrate that they were going to take action. Ironically, the whole concept of being good to the environment, harness solar power and trying to “live off the grid” has actually been around for centuries.

In Powering The Dream: The History and Promise of Green Technology, Alexis Madrigal reflects on a century and a half of American innovations in energy. He explores both the astonishing and the failed attempts to create new technology and presents them as learning opportunities for reshaping how we think about energy today.

In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer will speak to author, Alexis Madrigal. Stay tuned!
