ISB/Science in Society: Steve Koonin: America's Energy Challenge
With the threat of radiation exposure still an all-too- real concern after the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, nuclear energyand the future of energyhas become a topic of increasing urgency: To some, what once seemed a viable option now seems just too dangerous. And while the U.S. Department of Energy's goals for meeting America's energy challenges involve energy security, Steve Koonin, the DOE's Undersecretary for Science, says energy change can be slow. With Lee Hood, president of Seattle's Institute for Systems Biology, Koonin discusses the technological, policy, and economic levers we can use to safely transform our energy system while enhancing U.S. competitiveness in the global economy. Presented as part of Science In Society, a collaboration of the Institute for Systems Biology and Town Hall. Series supported by Microsoft; media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
