Solar energy specialist Jesse Hunter discusses current problems and solutions related to energy and tech


There's no arguing that human technology and energy use have a tremendous impact on our planet; and the problems we face, which include climate change and the risk of mass extinction, are daunting. What we end up doing is a clear reflection of our values and priorities. Solar energy specialist Jesse Hunter supports efforts to dethrone "King C.O.N.G" (Coal, Oil, Nuclear, Gas), and envisions renewables as a back door solution to the problems of global domination. He has been looking at a wide range of options, local to global; and he'll talk about the risks and promises associated with tech alternatives, with a focus on creating sustainable wellbeing for all. Call in with your questions and comments: 503-231-8187.
