In Part 3 of the Old Mole's two-hour special program on climate change, we turn to who will own and control the new forms of carbon-free energy. John Farrell is the Directory of Democratic Energy at the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, and has written widely on how individuals, families, schools, and communities can produce and determine how to use the energy they produce, rather than giving control of it to big corporations. Here he talks the Old Mole's Bill Resnick about the many social, political and environmental virtues of locally produced and democratically managed energy. 12:44 minutes (7.29 MB)
In Part Two of the Old Mole two-hour special on climate change, Mark Jacobson discusses fast-track models for converting energy production to non-fossil fuels within 15-30 years.

He talks here with the Old Mole's Bill Resnick. 12:01 minutes (6.87 MB)
In Part One of the Old Mole two-hour special on confronting climate change, Bill Resnick talks with Mark Hertsgaard about the latest scientific findings about how and why the climate is changing and what the consequences will likely be.
