All Electric America: A Climate Solution and the Hopeful Future By Leah Y. Parks and S. David Freeman

By Rob Lorei

On Radioactivity Wednesday we were joined by Leah Y. Parks, who along with  S. David Freeman authored the new book All Electric America: A Climate Solution and the Hopeful Future, which posits that cheaper and better technology will allow the United States to be completely run on renewable energy by 2050. She discussed how improvements in technology and storage capabilities, falling prices, and progress made by some US cities and other countries could make a completely clean energy infrastructure possible in the near future.
