"We have so dang much coal, that it is almost a renewable resource ...," says Gov. Brian Schweitzer in this three-part podcast from Ceres. He admits he'll be criticized for saying that, but "do a little math for god's sake," and you'll understand, he says.
Ceres, a Boston-based nonprofit that "leads a national coalition of investors, environmental organizations and other public interest groups working with companies to address sustainability challenges," interviews Schweitzer, former US Forest Service Supervisor and environmental activist Gloria Flora and Western Representative for the American Wind Energy Association Tom Darin, about the future of low carbon and high carbon energy developments in Montana.
The first segment featuring Schweitzer is up now. It's about 15 minutes long.
