Produced in Oahu, Hawaii, during the 2008 Blue Planet Energy Summit, this Fred Friendly Seminar features a panel of high-profile environmental and political leaders tasked with envisioning America's energy future. Broadcast journalist Frank Sesno, assuming the top post in a hypothetical presidential administration, challenges each "cabinet member" to contribute to a strategy that will end American dependence on foreign oil and all fossil fuels. A separate scenario involving the political and technical aspects of wind farming is also explored. Panelists include environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.; Natural Capitalism Solutions founder L. Hunter Lovins; former CIA director James Woolsey; PG&E Vice President Steven Kline; former CNBC energy reporter Bill Paul; New York Times environmental reporter Andrew Revkin; and several others.
